Cabernet Sauvignon’s origins can be traced back to France’s Bordeaux region but here in Australia its ideally suited to all Australian conditions. From the cool climate of the Yarra Valley in Victoria to the vast reaches of Western Australia, producing a wide range of styles and regional characters, from elegant, medium-bodied examples through to full-bodied reds full of intense black fruit flavours, with oak to match and firm tannins. What we have here is the StarDozen: Critic's Choice Cabernet Collection featuring 3 bottles each from 4 different regions of Australia which not only scored 94 Points or better from Australia's leading Wine Critics but also shows the diversity of this variety with an example from Langhorne Creek, Margaret River, Pyrenees VIC and Coonawarra.

3 bottles        Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
3 bottles        Wynns The Siding Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
3 bottles        Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

 

Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Bright crimson-purple; this has provenance written large across its visage, likewise purity. Restructuring of the Vasse Felix offers to the market has lifted, not compromised, this dark, fruit-filled cabernet. Drink to: 2032; Price: $28.00; Date Tasted: Sep 2019; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines of 2019; James Halliday; Wine Companion

Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Showing gorgeous varietal aromas of cassis, dark cherry, tobacco and subtle cedar on the nose, it’s succulent and persistent on the palate with excellent weight and intensity. The wine delivers elegance as well as power and complexity, finishing classically structured and engaging. Tasted: January 2020; Drink: Now to 2027. Price: $28.00; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Wynns The Siding Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
I'm seldom impressed by redesigns of labels that have history on their side. This is an exception, and it also hits home runs in the mouth notwithstanding a challenging vintage. It is a pure rendition of blackcurrant varietal fruit, hints of mulberry and mint attesting to its region. Drink to: 2032; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 95 Points & Top 100 & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Langhorne Creek is a full-on (cool) maritime climate, so wines of this quality and character priced this low are a bargain - and '17 was a great vintage. The wine is flush with cassis, a splash of plum and oak, and ripe tannins. Drink to: 2032; Price: $26.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2019; Alcohol: 13.8%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
