However, Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of some Australian wine regions, such as Coonawarra in South Australia, central Valley of Yarra Valley, Margaret River in Western Australia. Among the following ten Cabernet sauvignon, some enjoy long reputations of up to hundred years, some are new in recent decades. Any serious Australian wine master should at least try them all.”
