  1. Tanya Olinder

    2015 Estate Shiraz – VinoNotebook (June 2019)

    Blackberry and vanilla with distinct varietal choc-mint and leafy eucalypt. Full bodied black fruit (berry and currant) dominant palate with elegant tannins. Hints of eucalypt. Holds firm through the mid palate for fine drive and persistence. Finishes clean, despite the stated high alcohol percentage.

    17.5/20

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Sunday Telegraph Sydney (May 2019)

    Wine judges in Australia and China have given the thumbs up to this rich, elegant strikingly balanced red from Murrumbateman in the heart of Canberra’s cool-climate region. Owner-winemaker Graeme Shaw has passionately backed this regal variety, and judging by this result, for very good reason.

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – John Lewis (May 2019)

    THIS multi-faceted, 14.5%-alcohol, deep, dense inky purple drop will be one of the wines to quench the thirst of the spectators and the soldiery on Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16, when Graeme and Ann Shaw’s Shaw vineyard at Murrumbateman is the scene of a re-enactment of the 1815 Battle of Waterloo. The wine has forest floor aromas and rich, ripe blackberry front palate flavour. The middle palate has elements of Maraschino cherry, briar, black pepper, capers and cedary oak and the finish has ferric tannins. It will cellar well over the next seven years and would be good with apricot pork

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Stuart Robinson (May 2019)

    Jeez, I doubt this could be any more varietal if it tried! The Cabernet is strong in this one.

    Just exudes and emanates Cabernosity (it’s not a word, I made it up) from the get go. All cedar, bay, bit of tomato bush in the mix. Smidge of sawdust oak to book. It invites, lures, reels you back for more – in short, it’s a bit of an aromatic ripper!

    Black fruit, cassis specifically, smooth with a eucalypt tang. It’s all in check, an acidic fresh and at you finish, fine tannin in the profile. Happy to go here any time.

    2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon – Nick Butler (May 2019)

    Looks young and full of life. It’s a poised and restrained – oak in the background. Blackberries lead the charge. It’s concentrated but primary.

    91/100 points

  6. 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

  7. QWine

    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.

  9. Toni Paterson

    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

  10. 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
