Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia's finest wine regions and is particularly known for producing world class red wines especially Cabernet Sauvignon. Think Coonawarra, and thoughts of sumptuous reds spring to mind – from the rich rust-coloured Terra Rossa soil for which it’s internationally recognized, to the prized red wines that have made it famous. All three wines have received 95 Points or better from James Halliday which serves to highlight the tremendous quality.

Wynns Coonawarra Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Investment in the vineyards in the winery is paying big dividends, viticulturist Alan Jenkins and winemakers Sue Hodder and Sarah Pigeon with total control. The colour and sheer power of the varietal expression achieved at this level of alcohol is totally admirable; blackcurrant, blackberry and black olive are welded together with powdery tannins and perfectly judged oak. Drink By: 2048; Price: $45.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion

Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Good colour; the excellent vintage has provided winemaker Paul Gordon with a full hand of cassis and mulberry to play with, and he's played his cards well. The overall result is a medium-bodied cabernet that is already seductive, but please keep your hands off it for the first few years of what will be a long life. Drink by: 2035; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: March 2017; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion

Balnaves Of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
From three vineyards, matured for 19 months in French oak from big-name coopers. A serious cabernet showing just what Coonawarra can do in a top vintage; it is intense, complex and packed with cassis/blackcurrant fruit, savoury tannins and positive oak. Drink by: 2053; Price: $42.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2015; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 96; James Halliday Wine Companion
