Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Deep crimson-purple; an expressive cassis-laden bouquet leads into a complex medium-to full-bodied palate where the cassis is joined by French oak, a suggestion of dark chocolate and persistent ripe tannins to carry the wine on for a decade or 2.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Ripe cassis, olive, cedar and violet bouquet, with a truly complex array of aromas; the palate is generous on entry, providing fleshy black and red fruits, following with savoury leafy notes and focused tannins to conclude; once again excellent value.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Another powerful wine, but significantly more accessible. Certainly, the fruit is classic blackcurrant, and the tannins are there for the long haul, but it will welcome those who open the bottle many years before the Gladstones

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Finely crafted and balanced, restraint valued more than flamboyance; pure blackcurrant cabernet is king, oak and tannins hand maidens.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Full red-purple; the rich and deep bouquet is flooded with blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, which flows through into a really delicious palate, showing excellent texture, structure and balance. Ripe tannins and appropriate oak are all part of a wine which is still gathering pace.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
A massive dark berry/blackcurrant/chocolate charged bouquet foretells a similarly awesome but luscious palate, with loads of sweet dark berry fruit. Amazingly, the tannins are soft, the oak submerged in the fruit.
