Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This is Palliser Estate's second-tier label, but in top years it is an impressive wine, better than some companies' top reds. The 2007 vintage is boldly coloured, with mouthfilling body, a restrained oak influence and fresh, strong, vibrantly fruity flavours of plums and herbs.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage is Palliser Estate's second-tier label, but it's still an impressive wine and better than many company's top reds. Matured in French oak barriques (25 per cent new), it has a spicy, smoky bouquet, leading into a full-bodied, raspberry and spice-flavoured palate with excellent depth and a smooth finish. It's already delicious. The 2002 has sweet, ripe-fruit characters, with cherry and spice flavours showing greater depth than its lightish colour suggests. Savoury and supple, it's a forward vintage, for drinking during 2004.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage is Palliser Estate's second-tier label, but it's still an impressive wine. Fresh raspberry/spice aromas lead into a mouthfilling (14 per cent alcohol) red with warm, ripe fruit characters, strong raspberry/spice flavours, gentle oak influence and a rounded finish. Drink 2000-01.
