Some of the finest trans-Tasman Cabernets

Below are current vintages of 65 of many of the finest Cabernets and Bordeaux blends made on either side of the Tasman Sea.

See How good are Australian (and NZ) Cabs? in wine news from 14 may for my account of the blind tasting and the issues it raises, conducted in Sydney in feb 05, at which these notes were taken. Please note that I have not penalised precocious wines so take careful note of my very varied suggested drinking dates as well as the scores and, of course, comments.

Wines are listed below by region and then by descending...
