Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
At the rich end of spectrum for cool-grown fruit, but does have spicy notes and good mouthfeel; lively finish.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Lively, fresh and intense red and black fruits on an elegant, medium-bodied palate, with superfine tannins running through the finish.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Deceptively light in colour; likewise enters the mouth with fairly light red fruits, but the texture picks up on the back^ palate and finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
A complex array of plum, blackberry and blueberry fruits; very good structure and mouthfeel; oak in restraint. A bargain.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the clean and smooth bouquet has a mix of raspberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit, the oak in restraint; an appealing touch of dark chocolate joins the gently ripe fruit on the medium-bodied palate, the oak once again playing a support role. As with the Chardonnay, the oak far better handled than with prior releases. From the Larnoo and Jenbel Vineyards.

Ken Gargett (2001 Vintage) says
Here is a wine not trying to be anything it isn't. It is fairly subtle, medium-bodied shiraz sourced from Yea, which is kind of in the middle of nowhere. It is no full-bodied blockbuster and the tannins are fine and soft. Which might not make it sound like the most interesting wine, but if they held a race to finish a bottle of shiraz at lunchtime tomorrow, this would most likely be the empty bottle in my hand as I staggered across the finish line.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Deep purple-red; a complex barrel-ferment and oak characters surround the dark cherry fruit of the bouquet, and strongly toasty/charry oak comes rocketing through on the palate, which does, however, seem to have the density to soak up the oak given time.
