Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
This consistently excellent wine was recently part of the Sacred Hill stable, but has now been replaced by the Wild South brand. The 2004 vintage is ripely scented, with fresh, pure, vibrant flavours of melons, limes and capsicums, showing impressive delicacy and depth, and a sliver of sweetness (4 grams/ litre of residual sugar), balanced by mouth-watering acidity. This is the last of this label.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
A consistently attractive wine, now part of the Sacred Hill stable. The 2002 is a medium to full-bodied sty le, still fresh and lively in mid to late 2003, with melon, pineapple and lime characters showing good ripeness, delicacy and length. The 2003 vintage is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with firm acidity woven through its melon and lime flavours, which show good depth

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1996 to 1999 vintages are all impressive. With its ripe, sweet-tasting fruit characters and powerful finish, the 1998 is a delicious wine. Lively and fresh, it offers good weight and excellent depth of melon and lime-like flavours, delicate, crisp and long. The 1999 is another fresh, weighty and lively wine with balanced acidity and impressive depth of well-ripened passionfruit and lime flavours.
