  • REVIEWS

    2015 McHenry Hohnen Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River, WA)

    '65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% each of Malbec and Shiraz; the vinification is in the usual McHenry Hohnen template, with whole berry, partial wild yeast ferment in a stone vat, basket-pressed, no additions other than minimal SO2. Deeply coloured, it has a medium to full-bodied palate replete with blackcurrant, redcurrant, black olive and bay leaf flavours within a mesh of fine-grained tannins.'
    95 Points - James Halliday

    2016 Hardy's Tintara Cabernet Sauvignon (McLaren Vale, SA)

    'The inclusion of merlot 6%, cabernet franc 5% and shiraz 3% in this cabernet sauvignon all contribute, starting with the outlandishly deep purple hue. While there's certainly ripe fruit with cassis and mulberries lurking, this is savoury through and through with gun smoke, dried gum leaves, Chinese five spice, licorice and tamarind. While oak makes a presence, it isn't brash, the detailed tannins working off a more medium-bodied palate. Excellent value.'
    95 Points - Jane Faulkner (Wine Companion)


    2016 Alkoomi Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon (Frankland River, WA)

    'Nine blocks harvested over 2 weeks, matured in French oak (20% new) for 14 months. Elegance is the byword of this cabernet that brings perfectly ripened flavours of cassis/blackcurrant in a gently flowing stream across the palate, superfine tannins and cedary oak adding carefully calibrated complexity. Will provide enjoyment when young or mature.'
    95 Points - James Halliday


    2016 Tatachilla Drops on Tide Cabernet Sauvignon 

    'From estate Clarendon and Tatachilla vineyards, matured for 14 months in French oak (20% new) before blending. Trophy McLaren Vale Wine Show '17. Well balanced, medium-bodied, cassis and dried herbs flavours.'
    95 Points - James Halliday


    2016 Nugan Alcira Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

    'An intriguing combination of deli meat and spearmint aromas introduce a wine that dares, in an accessible way, to be different. It's all backed by a substantial serve of cassis-like fruit, and includes both a handy tether of tannin and sound length. Now or later, this will rise to the occasion.'
    94 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion


    2016 Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon

    Previous Vintage scored 95, 95, 94,93, 92 Points from a host of diffferent reviewers.
