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 90 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 90 Points or better from Australia's leading wine critics.

The StarDozen consists of the following:

3 bottles      Deep Woods Ebony Cabernet Shiraz 2019
3 bottles      Flametree Margaret River Cabernet Merlot 2019
3 bottles      Evans & Tate Wild Cape Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
3 bottles      Howard Park Cellar Collection Cabernet Shiraz 2017


Deep Woods Ebony Cabernet Shiraz 2019
A consistent value-for-money offering from one of the best producers in Margaret River. A slightly leaner style to previous vintages, the result of this cooler vintage. Still, the fruit weight balance and all thing nice are in place to make for excellent current drinking. Rating: 90 Points & Top 100 Reds for 2021; Ray Jordan

Flametree Margaret River Cabernet Merlot 2019
Rather pitch perfect. Hitting high notes with mulberries, currants and spicy cedary oak, while the palate is superfine and long. The tannins are ripe and textural, the acidity refreshing and it is delicious. Today. Now. Date: Mar 2023; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $35.00; Drink by: 2033; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; Jane Faulkner; James Halliday Wine Companion

Evans & Tate Wild Cape Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
The panel enjoyed the vibrancy and dense floral/fruit concentration in this wine, so I was not surprised to find out there is 12 per cent malbec in the blend. Value for money is through the roof. This is big on flavour, a little juicy up-front, finishing with plush, dry tannins. Classical blackcurrant, tapenade and cocoa powder. Drink now or cellar and enjoy for up to five years. Rating: 93 Points; West Australian Wine Guide

Howard Park Cellar Collection Cabernet Shiraz 2017
This is tremendously appealing; the perfumed bouquet shows blackcurrant, sweet cherry, olive and vanillin oak notes, leading to a concentrated palate that’s multi-layered with rich texture and loads of delicious flavours. It’s properly structured with wonderfully integrated tannins, making it sophisticated and persistent. Now to 2031; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
