About The Pack

Cabernet is one of the great grape varieties of the world. 

It may not be the trendiest variety but there are plenty of producers in Australia and across the world making Cabernet cool again.

Here are six of our favourites, including 100% Cabs as well as delicious Cabernet-led blends, from Australia, France and the USA.

2021 Head Red Cabernet Sauvignon

Alex Head hadn't ever felt like wanting to bottle a straight up Cabernet Sauvignon before, preferring to use it in blends instead. But, after finally getting his hands on the right fruit, he has given us this beauty.

Loaded with blue and black fruits, plumminess, a little leafiness as is classic for the variety, and fine tannins.

Rich, opulent, classy - it's all here in this wonderfully affordable drop from Alex.

2021 Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon

Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon consistently has wonderful qualities such as freshness, some spice, and silky tannins. These factors are delivered in spades in the Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon, which is elegant, balanced and textured, without a hint of greenness to it. For the price, this Cabernet offers tremendous value, whether you drink it now or after several years of careful cellaring.

Fruit for the Fetherston Camellia Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the 32-year-old Yering Grange vineyard in the Yarra Valley, a small site producing high-quality fruit. With 20 days on skins, there is wonderful colour, flavour and texture in the wine, with only a hint of oak.

2019 Fraser Gallop Estate Cabernet Merlot

Fraser Gallop does Margaret River reds very, very well. They should be in everyone's regular wine rotation.

Cabernet Merlot in name but it's mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot and a touch of Cab Franc making up the numbers. So it's got plenty of cool, grippy tannin holding the fresh, blackcurrant fruit in check, and there's a minerally, minty note too.

Fleshy and full bodied this would be damn good in five years time but the wait is absolutely unnecessary...

2021 Brash Higgins FRNC Cabernet Franc

The Brash Higgins 'FRNC' is one of the trailblazing wines of its genre. This wine has been at the forefront of the new wave of fresh and vibrant Cabernet Franc sweeping across the wine regions of Australia.

Brad wants this wine to "focus on the aromatics and delicacy of the fruit, making it an ease to drink but still complex, age worthy." and he has achieved that unequivocally. It's pretty bang on for the Loire Valley style that Brad is chasing, too.

This small batch of fruit has made simply one of the most delicious and interesting wines of its ilk in the country. It sells out quicker every year, don't miss out!

2020 Marie & Sylvie Courselle Temps de Lune Sans Soufre Ajoute

This cuveé is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented and aged in concrete vats, then sent to bottle with no additional sulphur. It's an awesome, vibrant, natural Bordeax that shows its sweet blue fruits and shapely tannin without the influence of heavy oak. 

Its such a unique take on Cabernet from this famous region and absolutely a style we would love to see more of out of the area.

2020 Hobo Wine Co Camp North Coast Cabernet

The Camp range from Hobo Wine Co was created to showcase the impeccable quality of wine from Sonoma County.

This frisky Cabernet Sauvignon (with a little bit of Merlot) comes from four different organically certified vineyards all over the area, and offers a perfect snapshot of what is possible for wines of this region - just without the hefty price tag.

It's fresh, fine and full of ripe cherry and blackcurrant notes and a savoury dry finish. Such good value for an artisanal Californian Cabernet.

    Cabernets to the rescue!

    DD has put together a really good selection that is representative of modern Australian winemaking as applied to the good old cabernet sauvignon grape. It was just what I wanted - I have been talking about getting back into CabSav, but didn't want to drink the same old "classic" brands that I had been used to in the past.
