Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; typical stone fruit/grapefruit flavours of the region have been given a touch of American oak; I think the wine would have been better without it.

Refined style; citrus stone fruit and melon; dry finish and minimal oak.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; there are obvious barrel-ferment influences on the nectarine and grapefruit aromas of the bouquet, but the oak is less assertive on the palate, where grapefruit and citrus flavours provide a firm but pleasant mouthfeel.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; the bouquet is quite rich and complex, although the oak is a fraction assertive at this point of time. The palate offers the usual abundant flavour, with nectarine and peach fruit supported by oodles of oak.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the palate is in typically, opulently oaked style with nice melon fruit. The palate is rich and complex with spicy/toasty oak set against rounded melon and citrus fruit flavours. What you see is what you get.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; much livelier than the '95, with fragrant melon/grapefruit aromas and an attractive touch of spicy French oak. There are similarly lively tangy/melon/citrus/white peach fruit flavours, which invest the wine with length on the palate; well-handled oak rounds off an excellent commercial wine. Retasted October and November '97 with similar notes.
