Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2010 Vintage) says
Excellent fruit definition offering the class of a Cote Rotie without the viognier. Very exotic and complex with currant fresh blackberry and jam blackberry fruit clove cinnamon and 5 spice with very silky tannins and very attractive ripe berry fruit with late spice on the finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The highly concentrated 2001 vintage is a densely coloured wine with good varietal character and excellent fruit depth. The 2002 is a blend of grapes from vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels district (80 per cent) and the company's own block, La Collina, on Roys Hill. Matuted for 17 months in French (predominantly) and American oak barriques, it's a dark, weighty wine with black pepper aromas and powerful, plummy, spicy flavours, intense and chewy. Still very youthful, it's a firm, concentrated wine with the structure to age well for several years

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The highly concentrated 2001 vintage was grown in Gimblett Road and Bilancia's nearby terraced vineyard on the slopes of Roys Hill, and matured for 10 months in equal proportions of French and American oak casks (60 per cent new). Densely coloured, with a rich, peppery, complex bouquet, it's a strongly varietal wine with lovely fruit intensity, oak complexity and a firm finish. It's still a baby; open 2004+.
