Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
The leaping trout on the label was painted by Don Francois, recalling his tenure as Director of Fisheries NSW; the wine has vibrant lemon and mineral flavours and great length to the palate.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Bright glowing green-yellow; voluminous aromas of lemon, herb and grass lead into a palate in the early stages of its development, yet still braced by zesty acidity that will sustain it through its life.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Delicious and classic Semillon, as yet saying little on the bouquet, but with long, intense and precise fruit on the palate; great now or later style; great bargain.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Spotlessly clean; starting to develop layers of flavour, the lemongrass/lemon cake of the great '05 vintage a big help; excellent acidity and length. Outstanding value.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Hints of straw and toast under an intense layer of crystal lemon and citrus fruit; long finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Light, bright glowing green-straw; a super-lively and intense palate, lingering acidity prolonging the finish. Some bottle variation on the record, a trophy one show, low points the next.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Appropriate pale gold-straw colour; some ripe, slightly caramelised fruit and toast; fresh acidity to close and provide length.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Continues the development theme; citrus dominates, with touches of honey and toast sandwiched between that citrus and the closing acidity. Will the cork serve the wine as well as the screwcaps on the young vintages?
