Amelia Park Cabernet Merlot 2012

Regular Price: $28.99

Special Price: $24.99

As low as: $22.99
Out of stock

“Blackcurrant, cherry, plenty of mocha and a seasoning of bay leaf, mint and seaweed – that regional perfume, anyway. Full bodied, smooth and plush, plump fine grained tannin, slight burr of warmth, and a long finish closing with a slick of fine dark chocolate tannin and flavour. Excellent.’ – 93 Points Gary Walsh


“The blend percentages are not specified, but the wine spent 12 months in French oak. The cabernet is certainly dominant, with potent cassis and redcurrant fruit; the tannin structure is gently savoury, exactly as it should be, the palate long and well balanced.” – 94 Points James Halliday

Balnaves Coonawarra the Blend 2013

Regular Price: $20.99

Special Price: $19.50

As low as: $18.50

Dark red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas of mulberry, wild blackberry and liquorice combined with delicate smoky-coffee French oak. The palate is medium bodied with a soft round Merlot mouth- feel, black fruit flavours and a touch of dried herbs. This wine will reward careful cellaring, and decant before drinking.

Battle of Bosworth Cabernet 2014

Regular Price: $23.99

Special Price: $22.99

As low as: $21.00

The wine has a bright rich red colour, with a purple rim. On the nose, there are bright pretty blue fruits, with violets and red currants too. The wine has a fresh and even palate with red fruits and a hint of varietal mintiness. There are fine tannins and a very good length. Go old-school with food and wine matching, and have it with roast lamb

Bests Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Regular Price: $26.99

Special Price: $26.00

As low as: $24.50

95 points. “Medium to full-bodied with licorice, dark cherry and plum building the main tent of flavour; clove and eucalypt as the guy ropes; tannin stake it all firm. Outside of flavour descriptors the best way to describe this wine is to say: it will mature beautifully over 15-20 years but it’s going to prove extremely difficult to keep your hands from it, even now in its youth.” James Halliday 95 points

Bleasdale Generations Malbec 2013

Regular Price: $29.99

Special Price: $28.99

As low as: $28.00
Out of stock

93 points - "Small parcels from estate blocks vinified separately from start to finish in new and used French oak. Convincing colour, and at the heavyweight/top end of the malbec scale, with loads of earthy plum and black fruits; the fruit has swallowed the oak, and the tannins are in balance. Deserves time. 13.5% alc. To 2035." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2016, 27 July 2015

Bleasdale Second Innings Malbec 2014

Regular Price: $20.00

Special Price: $18.99

As low as: $18.00

This wine shows vibrant primary fruit flavours of plums, red berries and spices. Finishing soft and round with velvety smooth tannins. Malbec is rarely seen as a varietal wine but here at Bleasdale and in Langhorne Creek it stands on its own two feet and performs well enough to earn its stripes.

Castelli Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Regular Price: $28.50

Special Price: $26.99

As low as: $25.99
Sourced from Frankland River, the 2013 Castelli Cabernet Sauvignon shows the purity and elegance this region is famous for. This is a medium-bodied wine, packed with impressive blackcurrant and chocolate flavours supported by fine tannins and impeccable structure. A super impressive Western Australian Cabernet, particularly at this price.

Coriole Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Regular Price: $31.50

Special Price: $30.99

As low as: $29.99

"Liquorice, chocolate, gum leaf, tobacco and black fruit. Full bodied, big spread of ripe and fleshy tannin, red and black fruit, sage and lavender mouth-perfume, cool acidity, and a long tobacco laced finish. Lovely wine. All of the McLaren Vale and plenty of the Cabernet Sauvignon too. Touch and go for 94 points.

Crabtree Watervale Cabernet 2014

Regular Price: $25.99

Special Price: $23.99

As low as: $22.99

Rugged with tannin but the fruit here seems up to the task. A good stint in the cellar is certainly going to be required. Blackcurrant, eucalypt, gravel and swish, polished, cedar oak. Brilliant value for the patient. 94+ points Winefront.com.au

Eden Road Gundagai Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Regular Price: $30.50

Special Price: $28.99

As low as: $27.50

Has a distinct smell of liquorice and aniseed, layers of spice and floral perfume, mulberry and plum fruit, and what you might call ‘crushed rocks and pencils’, though our words are code for something else that’s probably too hard to describe, really. Medium bodied, dense and tannic, and the tannin here is the thing that sets it apart: a slick of gravelly and minerally feeling stuff. Acidity is spot on, with no spikes or pricks on the way through, just this feeling of composition and primal earthy depth. Some chocolate and red fruits in there too, and a wide web of sticky tannin thrown on the finish.
Boy this is impressive Cabernet.” 95 points

Fraser Gallop Cabernet Merlot 2013

Regular Price: $24.99

Special Price: $23.50

As low as: $22.00

The wine itself is soft and approachable with juicy plum and pomegranate flavours. The tannins are quite grainy and persistent similar to cranberry juice. The oak in this wine definitely sits in the background allowing the fruit to shine and the acidity and alcohol levels are nicely balanced in the wine, making it very easy to drink.


 Mixed berries, cocoa and vanilla, tobacco, and this lovely perfume wafting about. Medium bodied, silky and tightly packed, clean acidity, ripe but fresh berry fruit, with a distinct ‘minerally’ feel to it. Freshness, length, complexity and effortless drinkability.
Absolutely bang on. Can’t recall a better release of this wine. 93 points Winefront.com.au

Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2013

Regular Price: $20.99

Special Price: $19.99

As low as: $19.00

An 80/20% blend destemmed, standard Hay Shed Hill vinification; 13 months in French oak. Healthy crimson colour; a wine of considerable stature, with cassis and redcurrant fruit leading the way, pursued by firm tannins that unequivocally ask that you bide your time for 3 or so years. 93 points James Halliday

Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Regular Price: $27.50

Special Price: $26.00

As low as: $25.00

95 points - "An 86/10/4% blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec and cabernet franc, standard Hay Shed Hill vinification, then French oak for 13 months. All about complexity, built on the fruit blend, the tannin structure, the oak and the terroir. A quintessential Margaret River style; there are even better examples, but you have to pay three or four times as much to get one. Screwcap. 14% alc. To 2028." 95 points James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2015, 27 July 2015

Kalleske Wines The Merchant Cabernet 2015

Regular Price: $29.99

Special Price: $28.50

As low as: $27.00

The natural tannins are solid and prominent but integrated and will add great longevity. This wine is powerful but controlled resulting in great balance. The finish is extremely lengthy and completes a complex and sophisticated wine. Merchant is a classic Barossa Cabernet that can be equally enjoyed now or in a decade.

Lake Breeze Bernoota 2013

Regular Price: $23.00

Special Price: $21.99

As low as: $20.00

Distinct Aussie bushwalk scents of earth, eucalyptus, wet leaves, sweet paperbark bark. There’s dark berries and plum going on, but it’s that savoury lift that defines the wine. Medium weight, glossy in texture, crisp acidity lending a freshness as the sweet slick of red-black fruit glides across the palate. There’s leafy notes through the wine, light sandy tannins, and it finishes with a little saline character. All up, it’s a bright, flavoursome wine, with fine structure; an easy wine to come at and drink or cellar. Bewdy. "93 points Winefront.com.au

Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Regular Price: $24.50

Special Price: $22.99

As low as: $22.00
With its deep, dense purple-red colour and superb blueberry, blackcurrant and violet-scented bouquet, this is a refined, elegant cabernet at a bargain price. It’s quite stylish, with abundant fine-grained tannins that run the length of the palate. It shows unbounded potential. Cellar it!” – 95 Points & Wine of the Week Huon Hooke - Value Outstanding

 

“From 45yo vines. The good depth to the colour signals a wine with all the deliciously soft and fleshy mid-palate fruit Langhorne Creek can provide, yet leaving it with fine, savoury tannins to highlight its varietal character.” – 94 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday

Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet 2014

Regular Price: $34.99

Special Price: $33.50

As low as: $32.00

 Review : "If anything this 2014 Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is the exact opposite of green – it’s teetering on too ripe. Sexy ripe though. Very dark red in colour, it’s concentrated and thick from the outset, with a very lush coffeed blackberry richness with a dash of eucalypt. Ahoy Coonawarra! Polished and silky, the style is silky smooth, fleshy and lavish, every bit the ripe and berry fleshed wine you expect it to be, complete with bitter tannins and warming alcohol.


 My only quibble that it's a bit too warm and there’s no subtlety. Still, for weight, juiciness and silky length this is very easy to like. I may even be scoring it too lowly. Best drinking: 2018-2030. 18.1/20, 93/100.14.5%, $40." Ozwinereview

Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot 2014

Regular Price: $24.99

Special Price: $22.50

As low as: $22.00

Full deep red. Rich ripe cassis and blackberry fruit nose integrated with cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon nuances through maturation in predominantly French oak. The wine proudly shows its Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon pedigree. The palate displays an excellent depth and persistence of rich dark mulberry fruit with ripe, long tannins. It is full flavoured yet retains elegance and finesse.

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Regular Price: $71.00

Special Price: $68.50

As low as: $65.00

.....But now, over lunch, it really impresses. A slow burner. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it spent 21 months in 40% new wood. What’s noticeable is the even ripeness "in this 2012 vintage – no leather and gumleaf! It’s so much more generous than previous years, with plenty of purple in there. Maybe a little syrupy through the middle (a common characteristic in ’12 Margs Cab), but tightens up nicely with grainy oak and then grippy tannins. A new world order for Leeuwin Cabernet, it’s long and quite modern, the length befitting the label. What a step up! Best drinking: 2020-2035. 18/20, 93/100. 13.5%, $68. Would I buy it? I enjoyed my few glasses. I’d be happy to have some in the cellar." Andrew Graham Australian Wine Review

Parnasse French Cabernet Sauvignon

Regular Price: $14.00

Special Price: $13.50

As low as: $13.00

Likely I won’t make any new friends by saying it, but most Australian red wine under $15 is kind of gross. Well, maybe not gross, but often they try too hard: too much cheap oak, sweetness, acid adjustment, high alcohol etc. etc. all at the expense of basic drinkability.
Blueberry and mixed berries, wild herbs and nuts with a little chocolate. Medium bodied, light tannin with some grainy grip , balanced acidity and a nutty faintly perfumed herbal finish. Great mid-week drinking. Balance and value.
Can’t recommend it highly enough. 90 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au

Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet 2013

Regular Price: $19.99

Special Price: $16.67

Deep red with scarlet highlights, cassis fruit with hints of mint make this wine a definitive Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of vanilla, cinnamon and mocha from oak maturation have augmented the fruit and contribute complexity.The palate, with excellent blackberry fruit flavours within a medium bodied structure, has a beautiful persistence and long, soft tannins.

Singlefile Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Regular Price: $36.00

Special Price: $33.50

As low as: $33.00

"Single vineyard cabernet sauvignon from Great Southern.
How long do you have? This will outlive most of us I suspect. It’s firm, tannic, rich and controlled. It’s an A-class wine with a long term future. Graphite, blackcurrant, cocoa, bay and teams of dry-but-inconspicuous leaf matter. Long. Dry and structural. Balanced. An unstoppable cellarability, given appropriate storage." Rated : 95+ Points Winefront.com.au

Singlefile Great Southern Cabernet Merlot 2014

Regular Price: $25.00

Special Price: $23.50

As low as: $23.00

"It’s a brooding style of red and in a cabernet blend, that’s almost always a good thing. Not everything is yet revealed; it’s building up to it. Blackberry, graphite, dark chocolate and smoky cedarwood. There’s a reach of tannin and some leafy, almost mint-like lift. It all feels fine and impeccably well managed. A Claret style, done to perfection, with a bit of extra polish to boot. Really good wine." Rated : 93+ Points Winefront.com.au
