Where once Coonawarra was the undisputed king of Australian Cabernet, in the past two decades, Margaret River has not only made significant ground in claiming that title but surely now made it its own. With a climate not dissimilar to that of Bordeaux the final piece of the jigsaw - price - now allows us to bring 94-96 Point rated wines at more than reasonable prices. Not only does our StarDozen serve to highlight the exceptional quality and value here but also the remarkably consistently excellent recent vintages that Eastern Australia could only wish for. This collection features 3 bottles each from 4 renowned Margaret River producers with a whopping 95 Points or better from Australia's leading wine critics.
