Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia's finest wine regions and is particularly known for producing world class red wines especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

All four wines have received between a whopping 95 to 98 Points from Australia's leading wine critics which serves to highlight the tremendous quality.

St Hugo Barossa Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz 2017
Follows in the spirit, if not the letter, of Penfolds Bin 60A, this 51/49% blend, 86% from the Barossa Valley, 14% from Coonawarra, was matured in French oak (33% new) for 18 months. An exceptional wine that has taken the somewhat austere character of Coonawarra and cabernet from a cool vintage into something else, rich and supple overflowing with fruit. As time goes by, elegance will start to appear, making a very good wine into a great one. Drink to: 2047; Price: $58.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Alcohol: 14.7%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Majella The Musician Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz 2017
A 70/30% blend fermented in stainless steel and oak barrels, then largely matured in stainless steel. It is a freakish wine that has been selling for around $17-18 since it was first released in '04 and has won 7 trophies and 79 medals to date. Its duty is to be fresh, fruit-driven and medium-bodied, the tannins incidental. And so it is. Drink to: 2027; Price: $18.00; Alcohol: 14.0%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon is the shape of the patch of dirt that runs through the heart of Coonawarra with the red soils over limestone of terra rossa the remarkable asset. This is superb with chalky tannins and silky fine-grained oak supporting sublime fruit qualities. Such an elegant and stylish wine that captures all that is good from Coonawarra. Price: $35.00; Rating: 95 Points; Ray Jordan; The West Australia

Wynns Coonawarra Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Very deep purple colour; the bouquet young and fresh, the fruit aromas bright and reminding of blueberry, raspberry and mulberry. A hint of dried banana on the nose is the only inkling of oak that is given. A very elegant wine, intense and balanced, finely-honed and very long. Time will reveal it to be a superb vintage. Tremendous persistence and utterly gorgeous flavours. Drink 2017 to 2043; Price: $45.00; Alcohol: 13.8%; Rating: 98 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
