Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright green-straw; whole bunch-pressed; wild yeast-fermented, then 12 monthsÍ maturation on lees, zero mlf. The result is a very likeable peachy/buttery style, saved from looking retro by its fresh acidity.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Sophisticated winemaking knowing when to draw the line has resulted in a harmonious and finely etched wine with a creamy mid-palate emerging into a bright, fruit-driven finish
Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Cool-grown style; hints of onion skin and lemon fruits on the bouquet with high acidity, slightly austere framework.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
An austere, if elegant, style, with citrus and mineral flavours; meets you on its terms, not yours.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; developing slowly but surely, with nectarine and grapefruit supported by crunchy, mineraHy acidity and subtle oak.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied stone fruit and melon; controlled barrel.
Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Glowing green-yellow; the ultra-complex bouquet shows obvious barrel-ferment characters and some French solids nuances; the rich, intense and supple palate oozes nectarine and grapefruit, the oak well in the background.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; a big, rich wine with lots of character on the bouquet, and richness on the strong barrel-ferment-influenced palate. Toasty characters are evident through the wine, which does however finish a fraction short.
Australian Wine Companion 2000 1999
