Date: May 14, 2021#12:00 pm-1:30 pm AEST
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 this global panel discussion to explore the rich heritage of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon and to place these wines in a global fine wine context through a live blind benchmarking exercise of top international comparisons hosted by Mark Davidson and Corinne Mui. Following this, we’ll replay a video of the discussion by our expert panellists: Mary Gorman-McAdams MW, John Szabo MS and Oz Clarke, OBE.
Explore a number of key Cabernet regions, including Yarra Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra and Margaret River, and discover their regional characteristics, similarities and differences whilst discussing where these wines sit in an international context. The panel discussion will feature the following wines: Wynns Coonawarra Estate ‘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 and Henschke ‘Cyril Henschke’ Eden Valley 2015.
