Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Whole bunch-pressed, and taken direct (without settling) to a mix of barriques, puncheons and tank for wild fermentation; it was left on lees for 2 years to gain complexity, texture and natural stability. It has a achieved all these things without any loss of freshness; complexity to its savoury fruits is the big winner. 1000 dozen made.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Whole bunch pressed direct to a mix of French barriques, puncheons and stainless steel, wild yeast fermented and left on lees for two years. A wonderfully textured wine, powerful and rich, but so seamless there is no semblance of weight, stone fruit oak and acidity perfectly balanced.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Mid gold, bright; a complex and surprisingly understated bouquet of peach, cashew, charcuterie and spice; the palate reveals silky texture and true breeding, with a long and expansive journey from start to finish; will stand the test of time with aplomb.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; a remarkable wine that has spent 2 years on lees in a mix of big and small French oak and stainless steel, with one-third going through mlf; still intensely focused and brightly flavoured, with great length; deserves a screwcap or, at least, Diam, for it will quite certainly outlive its closure.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A resplendently complex and rich bouquet is followed by a deeply textured palate; creamy/nutty nuances and lush white peach fruit, all counterbalanced by perfect acidity.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
The grizzly bear face and booming laugh of Gary Farr are appropriate for a wine so rich and full of character. Opulent, complex barrel-ferment oak input is balanced by powerful fruit on the bouquet; the palate has concentrated, ripe fig fruit and oak. Overall, harmonious and balanced.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; the bouquet is extremely complex, with pronounced high-toast barrel-ferment oak aromas, but on the palate intense melon and fig fruit comes up to balance that oak. Lots and lots happening here.
