Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine: Best of the West

In this month's Gourmet Traveller Wine, Nick Bulleid MW and a panel comprising writer and educator Peter Bourne; writer, presenter and retailer Mike Bennie; fine wine consultant Andrew Caillard MW; judge and writer Toni Paterson MW; James Stuart Knox, manager and sommelier at Fix Wine Bar, wittled a selection of the Margaret River region's top cabernet sauvignon blends down to just nine outstanding wines.

Of the Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 panellist Peter Bourne wrote, “This graceful red is heading towards its maturity with a complex bouquet of red and black fruits and savoury, earthy notes. A hint of old cigar box. Style and finesse on palate, with gently persistent tannins and a long satisfying finish. Perfect with a roast leg of lamb.” 

Nick Bulleid "found raspberry fragrance with a hint of vanilla, while the palate has tremendous suppleness, line and length. It’s developing nicely and would be brilliant now, but I thought the wine still had plenty of time in it."
