Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
A 50/35/15% blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot with very good crimson colour; all of Peter Stark's skills come to the fore as he balances blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant fruit with savoury tannins and a dab of French oak; he is particularly successful with the bouquet, and also comes through on the palate.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Purple hue of medium depth; a fragrant, cassis-accented bouquet, then a finely built, medium-bodied palate, red and black fruit flavours with some spicy notes, the tannins on the finish especially convincing. Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Purple-crimson; an estate-grown blend of Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot/Cabernet Franc; has the excellent colour of all the '08 Boireanns; this is yet another distinguished Bordeaux blend attesting to Peter and Therese Stark's dedication as viticulturists and to Peter's exceptional winemaking skills.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Excellent colour; a lovely wine with abundant works exceptionally well; has structure from shiraz, the perfume and sweet berry red and black fruits with very good length and balance; the sure touch of finesse. Merlot (60%) ex-Golden Grove/Cabernet Franc ex-Masons Vineyard.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Strong purple-crimson; a powerful wine, with considerable personality and velocity; a pulsing array of blackcurrant and cassis fruit, the tannins fine but persistent; 900 bottles.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A very powerful Bordeaux-style blend, yet in some ways more welcoming and open than the other '05 reds; predominantly black fruits and generous, firm tannins; 1200 bottles.
