Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
While not particularly distinctive, is crisp and well made, doubtless part of the reason why it won a Blue-Gold medal at the Sydney International Wine Competition Í13; there is some citrus pith/zest on the finish.
Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition 2013
Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Slightly evolved and earthy, this complex and savoury dry white has a dusty, waxy bouquet of lemon, pear and apple lifted by scents of dried flowers. It's round and juicy, with a olive oil-like viscosity, delivering a pleasing length of apple and lemony fruit finishing with funky, meaty nuances and citrusy acids. Rather old world.
The Australian Wine Annual 2014 Edition 2014
Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
There' a gently savoury chalk and almond layer on the nose of this cool-climate arneis, some lemon citrus below, and apples and fresh-cut pear too - smells fresh and lively. The palate's as crisp as the nose sugests, with terrific focused lemon-sherbet fruit flavours and a tangy, bright finish.

Australian Wine Companion 2013
Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
A fine example of this variety, with spicy and savoury charm. Scented with lightly waxy, cinnamon and clove-like aromas of apple and pear, it's fresh, vibrant and juicy. Its round, generous flavours of apple, pear, melon and lemony fruit become quite nutty and savoury down the palate, finishing with balance, shape and almost bone dry.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A less immediately expressive bouquet than the '08, but does have a vibrant palate that combines finesse with intensity and length; citrus and pear are the flavours.

Australian Wine Companion 2011
Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
An honest, generous and flavoursome arneis whose scent of white flowers, apple and pear reveals hints of spice. Round and juicy, its palate has richness and depth of flavour, and a fine dusty undercarriage, but is marginally cooked and flat, finishing with a very slight sweetness.
The Australian Wine Annual
James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Attractive pear flesh and mineral aromas fairly leap out on the bouquet; the palate is generous and maintains a slight Italian savoury twist to the fruit; fresh and vibrant acidity draws out the palate, showing how delicious this variety can be.
Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says

Positive floral aromas; a precise palate, with green apple, pear and citrus flavours, and unexpected length.

Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Water white; does have ripe apple and pear flavour augmented by a touch of residual sugar; good length, well-made.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Faintly flinty, smoky, spicy aromas; bursts into life on the palate with white peach, ripe apple and lemon juice; crisp finish.
