Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
The cork can only mean one thing: the lion's share of the wine is headed offshore, most likely to the US. The wine is a classic cool-climate medium-bodied style, with abundant spice, pepper and licorice running through the black fruits and fine tannins; excellent length and balance.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Harmonious and seamless fusion of blackberry fruit, oak and fine, ripe tannins; long finish.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Bright purple-red; clean blackberry and spice aromas, along with a touch of oak, are followed by an impressive palate, with good texture, weight, structure, and, above all else, length.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full purple-red; clean, ripe black cherry fruit with hints of spice and subtle French (Seguin Moreau, of course) oak is followed by a powerful palate with black cherry fruit, pervasive lingering tannins and quality oak. Demands and deserves patience.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the moderately intense bouquet is clean, with a cedary/savoury/spicy spectrum of aromas. The palate, likewise, shows cedary French oak and attractive, fine tannins. One wonders whether the 22 months it spent in oak may be around four months too long.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Dense red-purple; rich, ripe complex dark plum fruit and touches of spice flood the rich bouquet; the same flavours are repeated on the palate, supported by well-balanced and integrated oak, and good tannins. None of the mint of lesser vintages.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the strong, minty aromas are very typical of Central Victoria, and similarly pronounced minty fruit dominates the palate. The structure is good, with subtle oak and fine tannins; it all depends on how much mint you like in your wine.
