Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Fresh, clear red-purple; a light-bodied, well-balanced wine with good varietal expression of black fruits and plums; impossible to expect more at this price.

Peter Forrestal (2008 Vintage) says
A cheap and cheerful red blend from the Riverina at an everyday price: redcurrant and blackberry flavours, fleshy texture, soft and approachable

Decent easy-drinking style that has pretty good dark berry flavours and smooth texture.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light to medium red-purple; fresh red berry aromas are followed by a palate with sweet berry fruit, virtually no tannins and a soft finish; drop-dead, easy drinking style. Very good value.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium purple-red; light, clean, simple berry fruit aromas are reflected in the soft, red berry fruit flavours of the palate; balanced acidity and no oak chips to be seen.
