    Explore what makes Australian Cabernet Sauvignon far from ordinary.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is an integral part of Australia’s wine heritage, successful both as a single varietal wine and as a dominant feature in classic blends. It is also now the most widely planted grape variety globally, accounting for nearly 7% of the world’s vineyard area, indicating the continuing popularity for these wines.

    Join us for a global discussion exploring the rich heritage of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon and how it fits in a global fine wine context through benchmarking with international comparisons. We will begin with a live blind tasting hosted by Mark Davidson and Corinne Mui. Following this, we’ll explore some of the key Cabernet producing regions and most revered producers with a video replay of the discussion by our expert panellists: Mary Gorman-McAdams MW, John Szabo MS and Oz Clarke.

    Our panellists will be tasting and discussing the following wines:

    Wynns ‘Black Label’ Coonawarra 2015
    Balnaves of Coonawarra ‘The Tally’ Coonawarra 2015
    Yarra Yering ‘Dry Red Wine No. 1’ Yarra Valley 2015
    Mount Mary ‘Quintet’ Yarra Valley 2015
    Cullen Wines ‘Diana Madeline’ Margaret River 2015
    Vasse Felix ‘Tom Cullity’ Margaret River 2015
    Henschke ‘Cyril Henschke’ Eden Valley 2015
