South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon

Penfolds

Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Deep crimson in colour. Noticeable oak (mocha) amongst the cassis and sweet ripe berry fruit aromas and flavours - the Penfolds formula if you will. A touch of Coonawarra mint. Crazy to say at 20 years it is still a youngster - but true. It still has a powerful, concentrated and full bodied palate from an exceptional vintage. Smooth fine grained tannins finishing dry and with time in decanter some austerity. Next in 3 to 5 years but this will cruise into the 2030s. — 19 days ago

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

Black Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Inky deep Ruby with a lovely bouquet of violet, cassis, black cherry and licorice and a faint minty note in the background. Juicy black fruit - it's very much a fruit bomb and sacrifices some complexity in the process. — 2 days ago

Jacob's Creek / Orlando

Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon

4th vintage. On the one hand this is a typical cabernet sauvignon. Rich, spicy, with tobacco, Black currant and cherries and dark chocolate on palate and on nose. Great, really Great. But the x-factor of this wine is mint. Makes it quite spectacular. — 12 days ago

The Benbournie Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

The wine initially showed some oxiditative porty notes which blew off with time in Decanter. Even so I believe this wine was probably a little better a few years ago. Notes of Clare Valley menthol and eucalyptus. After 14 years quite good mid palate power with traces of black currant and dark chocolate but essentially savoury in character. Drink now. — 11 days ago

Leeuwin Estate

Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

2014 vintage. Big on structure and drinks above its price point. Blackberry, currant, dusty black cherry, eucalyptus, dark cocoa, clove, cedar. Long finish and unmistakably Aussie. Elegant and ripe, but fine grained tannins. — 4 days ago

Teal Lake

Sauvignon Blanc

This kosher Australian Sauvignon Blanc smells lightly of grass, but not to the extent that a New Zealand SauvBlanc does. There's citrus and minerals, too, but it's altogether a fairly tame, and pleasant, aroma. Acidity is fresh, the palate shows Meyer lemon and minerals in a tasty, if not compelling, scenario. — 19 days ago

This is stunning. We love it. So exotic on the nose, which carries thru to the palate. Plump black and blue fruits pick up pace, along with coffee and pomegranate. Perfect acidity complements ripe tannins. Don’t cellar this, it’s perfect right now.
Kitchen will be completed in time for Xmas...

@Hugh O'Riordan i was really impressed with this. Great for the masses at Xmas, as opposed to wheelin out the good stuff for heathens.

@Hugh O'Riordan, we love this, too. Along with the $20 price point, you can’t go wrong...

Peel Estate

Cabernet Sauvignon 1984

Marvellous complexity
All you wish to find in a cab sauv, just lacking some elegance maybe and it is not super long, but from the Peel region in WA and from a 35yo wine you can’t expect more
Fair dinkum I dare to say too🤣🤣
