Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2012 Vintage) says
Fresh lavender flowers headline the balancing act which is in this wine. There is thyme, roses, honey and nougaut and lushness as well the restraint of the herbal edge. The palate has a savoury and tannin edge and needs a year or two more to flesh out when tasted in early 2013. The flavour is long and layered and unfolds lavender and rose with a lick of old oak. Will be amazing when it all comes together.

Lychee and varietal Turkish delight aromas lead into a long persistent structured rose orangemusk lychee-spectrum flavours. This generous textured soft fleshy wine has the structure to be delightful with food

It's rare to see an Australian gewurztraminer succeed in matching the richness and extreme hedonism that you'll see here and still manage to land the dismount with gymnast-like balance. On the nose, there are impressive lychee and rosewater aromas - really floral and fragrant, bright and lively. The palate's big on texture and the phenolics are nicely handled - exotic and luxurious drinking. Best drunk whilst young with fresh, spicy Asian cuisines.

Lychee and varietal Turkish delight aromas lead to long, loosely structured banana and persistent lychee-spectrum flavours and some warmth.

A nice wine; just creeps over the line on varietal character; gentle fruit, with a hint of spice.

While this delicately perfumed, spicy and flora young gewurztraminer has an appealing scent of rosewater and lychees, its palate begins sweet and confectionary, before drying out towards a powdery finish that appears stripped of fruit. While not appearing to want a bet each way, I'd like to see this again in a year.

A high-acid traminer with a slightly sweaty, musky perfume of rose oil, lychees and hair oil. its generous and oily palate has reasonable length, revealing confectionary and bathpowder notes that finish with some steely edges. Lacks a little freshness and varietal intensity.

Strongly varietal, rich and intense lychee; big mouthfeel.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light straw-yellow; an exceptionally pungent and floral bouquet with an abundance of rose petal and spice is supported by a palate redolent with flavour; here there is a mix of lemon juice, rose petal and a touch of lychee. Quite outstanding.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet has powerful lychee fruit on the bouquet supported by an unusually powerful, almost thick, palate which is quite different from the usual delicate Moorilla style, but which will appeal to many simply because of the amount of flavour.
