The definitive guide to Australian Wines
The affinity of cabernet sauvignon with maritime climate is put beyond doubt by its home in Bordeaux's Medoc region. So it comes as no suprise to find that most (but not all) of Australia's top quality cabernets come from regions with climates similar to Bordeaux (conspicuously Coonawarra and Margaret River) and/or which are within 50 kms of sea with no intervening mountain. The far greater number of Margaret River cabernet sauvignons is due to three excellent vintages from 2007 to '09 inclusive (and '10 and '11 to follow in the same vein when ready). Coonawarra has not had the same fortune.
