The Halliday Australian Cabernet Challenge provides an opportunity for Australian producers to participate in a competition showcasing great regional Cabernet Sauvignon.

An overall winner will be awarded the trophy for most outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and the best of region with 95 points or more will also be recognised.
