A superbly suave cabernet

2012 Robert Oatley, Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Western Australia (£11.99, Co-op).

You will already be aware of Margaret River’s vinous street cred, I am sure. I remember wine guru David Hohnen, when he was heading up Cape Mentelle, saying that the heat ‘comes on earlier and goes off later’ than in Bordeaux and that’s why Margaret River cabernet is so pure, cassis-soaked and classy. He was spot on.

While the rest of Australia has experienced some wild swings in the quality of its vintages over the last few years, Western Australia has enjoyed metronomic excellence.

Robert Oatley (erstwhile owner of leviathan wine brand Rosemount and Sydney-Hobart legend) has popped up in the wine world again with his eponymous brand and he has hired the Gareth Bale of the Aussie wine scene, Larry Cherubino, as his winemaker.

Larry only makes awesome wine (even at 12 quid). This superbly suave cabernet benefits from a year spent in new and used French oak and it is desperately well made, tasting like a £20 wine and not one that can be bought with spare change.

For the second time, I have sent you to the Co-op to buy wine! It will be a very worthwhile trip.
