James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Light, bright red; another example of the skills of the major wine producers to deal with extremely adverse vintage conditions; juicily fresh, it is ready to go right now.

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
An exceptional wine from this vintage whose lightly dusty and herbaceous aromas of sweet small berries, plums and cedar/vanilla oak precede a smooth, supple and elegant palate with a genuine depth and presence of vibrant small berry/plum fruit. Underpinned by a dusty undercarriage of fine, pliant tannins and knit with sweet oak, it delivers well above its price point.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Honest, flavoursome and fine value. Spicy, lightly dusty, herbal aromas of intense sweet black red and black berries with cedar/chocolate oak precede a bright, juicy palate with a pleasingly fine-grained presence of blackberries, dark plums and redcurrants finishing with genuine length, balance and freshness.

There are lots of ripe fruit flavours here, redcurrants and dark cherries, a slight grip to finish but still approachable

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
You don't become a big, popular brand by accident. This is yummy red-wine drinking. It's not intense but it's an attractive mix of sweet blackcurrant and grainy, spicy, slightly dilute mulberry fruit flavour. It has softness - it's easy to drink. It smells a bit 'cask-like' but it tastes much better than that. There's some excellent winemaking in evidence here.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Surprisingly elegant, with a fresh fragrance of sweet red and black berries and plums sweetly knit with oak. It's fine and almost delicate; also stylish and polished, with a smooth mouthfeel and a lively presence of spicy berries and plums backed by reserved vanilla oak and supple, pliant tannins.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Strong toasty aromas dominate, and the palate is dried out and quite hard; clean and modern but needs more fruit to carry the winemaking.

Peter Forrestal (2006 Vintage) says
There's some vanilla bean oak character and dark berry flavours, smooth succulence and softness, which make it very easy drinking.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Pretty, forward and juicy, with lively flavours of plum, red and black berries and sweet cedar/vanilla oak, it's supple and earthy, marginally short and framed by fine, dusty tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Sweet spicy, confection-like aromas of fresh berries and plums are backed by cedar/vanilla oak and floral, earthy undertones. The palate begins with sweet, juicy and jammy berry/plum flavours, supported by fine tannins and thinning out a little towards the finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied; blackcurrant fruit; nice balance and texture.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
A lively, flavoursome and complete little wine whose fresh, spicy perfume of violets, black and red berries and light vanilla/chocolate oak precedes a juicy, jujube-like palate of pleasing intensity and balance. It's fine, complete and elegant, framed by pliant tannin and finishes with refreshing acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
An earthy, rather confectionary riverland red with raspberry and plum flavours. It's lightly spicy, with some forward plummy fruit, but then thins out to rather a hollow finish.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2001 Vintage) says
This budget-priced red is showing the benefit of some bottle age: it is soft and round, with reasonably rich blackberry and dark plum flavours and heaps of tannins on the finish.
