Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep purple-red; black fruits, leather, earth and spice all appear on the bouquet and the firm palate, Hunter regional character very much to the fore.

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
This shows plenty of bright and youthful ripe red fruits and gentle spice - really attractive, ripe and fleshy. The palate's smooth and supple, with juicy summer-berry flavours and a lightly sprung tannin finish.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
More overt oak adds a savoury mocha gloss across this ripe Hunter shiraz. There's added density and palate richness too; it really drives long and even with persistent dark berry fruits, measure and balance, building deep structure and long flavour through the finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Ripe black fruit with prominent and highly polished oak on the bouquet; very dark and chewy palate, with an earthy undercurrent; the oak dominates at the moment, but there is a great deal of fruit to go the distance, Needs time

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
Mike De Iuliis's wines are much easier to enjoy than his surname is to spell. Upper-echelon shiraz. It smells pure and clean, of plums, minerals and musk. It tastes of them, too, though the flavours are delivered on a swish, smooth carpet of oak and come complete with high-quality, well-formed, elongated tannins. There's sweetness, savouriness, purity and structure. It's also beautifully balanced. This is quite something.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Concentrated and ample sweet fruits; full-bodied and quite oaky, but a vibrant and lively finish, with an aromatic element that is appealing.

Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
With really attractive charcuterie notes on the nose, balanced by fresh, bright red fruits on the palate, this is a very impressive wine made in an old-fashioned Hunter Valley “Burgundy” shape. A touch of new RM Williams work on the nose gives it a fresh and lifted appeal and the overall impression is the very best of ancient and modern in one glass.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Riper, denser fruit immediately obvious in both the bouquet and new oak; not as regional as the Charlie version so far, but will become so.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Deep colour; generous blackberry and plum fruit with notes of spice and earth; controlled tannins.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Attractively rich, gently sweet blackberry fruit; medium-bodied fine, ripe tannins, subtle oak. Shows top vintage.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Strongly regional earthy, leather, spicy aromas; sweet black fruits on the palate; good oak handling.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; some regional savoury, spice and earth aromas on the bouquet lead into a medium-bodied palate, with a similar display of blackberry, earth and chocolate fruit. The tannins are ripe, and the wine has good length and balance.
