Hope Estate Virgin Hills

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Spotless; medium-bodied, with supple mouthfeel; a seamless flow of varietal influences, and no hint of green; fine tannins, quality oak. Cabernet Sauvignon (76%)/Shiraz/Merlot/Malbec.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
The cool vintage should have made the wine greener and while there is an element of that, the wine is a major achievement; should last. It is also the last vintage to be labelled with the distinctive gold on white, bold Virgin Hills name.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied; much softer and sweeter cassis red berry fruit than the '02, only to be expected given the 'hot' vintage; ripe tannins.
