  1. Huon Hooke

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Huon Hooke (May 2019)

    Deep red colour with a mellow cassis and smokey oak bouquet. The palate is fruit-sweet and lush, seemingly made from very ripe fruit. Cassis galore, and the sweetness verges on the excessive. There’s soft, fine, powdery tannin helping balance the finish. It’s bright and very attractive – and very much a varietal cabernet.

    91/100 points

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – QWine (May 2019)

    A fabulous example of cool climate Cabernet from a vineyard perched 600m above.

    The fruit is dense yet vibrant. It fills the mouth with handfuls of blackberries, roasted peppers and green herbs. A long finish with dusty and powdery tannins shows elegance yet has a retrained power. A beautiful wine really with many years of pleasure to come.

    Drink now to eight years+

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Winsor Dobbin (May 2019)

    If you can seek some of this out you will be well rewarded. It used to be that Margaret River and Coonawarra were the “go to” regions for medium-bodied cabernet, but several other regions, including cooler Canberra, have now jumped on the bandwagon. This one is ridiculously good value from an outstanding vintage, very easy to drink given its powerful dark berry and currant fruit flavours, savoury notes and terrific length. Oak from France, the US and Eastern Europe plays a solid but minimal support role.

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Toni Paterson (July 2018)

    Bright fruit and creamy oak. The palate is plush, soft and generous with good fruit purity. Lovely flavour intensity and generosity, though elegant and supple. A top value buy

    90/100

  5. Jane Faulkner

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Jane Faulkner (December 2017)

    Dark black-garnet, deeply coloured with no shortage of flavour or depth either. Plenty of juicy blackberries, Black Forest cake spices, mint and cedary oak making its mark, yet there’s a vivacity to this too. Needs more time
