Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Vibrant green hue; a bouquet of peach and citrus, showing almond and charcuterie complexity; rich, ripe and warm, with a racy backbone of acidity; long and expressive.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; an intensely fruited wine, nectarine and grapefruit flavours perfectly integrated with French oak; shows no heat from the alcohol.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
A high-quality, immaculately balanced and harmonious wine; nectarine fruit is seamlessly married to quality French oak, the palate as supple as it is long, thanks to citrussy acidity.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Pale colour; really fine fruit on the bouquet, with lemon and mineral on the finish; long and satisfying.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Intense grapefruit, citrus and stone fruit on a crisp and lively palate; well-integrated oak, lively finish and good acidity.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Bright, light straw-green; fresh, pure and still very youthful; super-elegant nectarine and grapefruit flavours, supported by lingering, fine acidity; fresh aftertaste.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Vivid green-yellow; totally delicious melon and nectarine fruit; outstanding length and balance; malolactic and barrel ferment notes in the background.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow, brilliant and clear; fresh stone fruit, melon and citrus aromas are faithfully reproduced on the palate, where the oak is barely perceptible; the wine has nice flow and feel, but will be even better in a year or two.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; a complex, tangy bouquet with a mix of melon and citrus fruit is followed by a typically stylish and elegant palate, with good intensity and balance; the oak plays a pure support role.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; a fresh and lively bouquet with citrus, nectarine and melon fruit; barely perceptible oak. The palate is a replay of the bouquet, with subtle cashew and melon flavours and perfectly balanced and integrated oak.
Australian Wine Companion 2001 2001

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium to fall yellow-green; the bouquet exhibits classic melon and fig fruit, a hint of cashew and a nice touch of spicy oak. Toasty/bacony oak is unexpectedly evident on the forepalate, with the delicate fruit streaming out behind.
