Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; the bouquet is quite complex, with obvious but not excessive nutty/smoky/cashew oak aromas. The palate has length and balance, with gentle fruit and oak flavours tied off with good acidity on the finish. Particularly good value.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1999 Vintage) says
The Andrew Garrett winery in McLaren Vale founded its reputation during the 1980s and 1990s on big, bold, popular reds (like the reds we also recommend elsewhere in the book), Now under the ownership of Mildara Blass, we can also recommend this label as a good source of surprisingly refined, restrained, subtle, dry and savoury chardonnay.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; astonishing depth and complexity to the tangy, ripe melon-accented bouquet; the palate likewise has good flavour, dipping slightly in the middle, but picking up again on the finish. Clever oak handling. The winner of two trophies and two gold medals.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; the effective use of oak together with ripe fig and melon fruit produces a full and complex bouquet. The palate, too, is honest and full-flavoured, the oak judiciously handled. Probably best earlier in its life.
Australian Wine Companion 1999 1998
James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Full yellow-green; the bouquet shows lots of oak influence and input of good quality. The palate, too, is oak-driven, with obvious, strong barrel ferment characters. There are nice nutty flavours running through the wine however, and its level of sweetness on the palate has been well judged. Outstanding value.
