Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Light purple-red; red and black cherry, plum and oak all compete for space in this medium-bodied wine; the back label food match suggestions of curry, roast vegetables or grilled fish are if nothing else, novel.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
The Pig in the House wines are certified organic. The vineyard was planted on land once used as a piggery - hence the name. We had a fairly wide divergence of opinion on this wine - the rating has been plonked somewhere in the middle. Strange wine. Tastes both ripe and unripe and a little diluted - and yet it weighs in at a whopping 15 percent alcohol. Such high alcohol usually comes with massive, porty flavours; this tastes anything but. It's light to medium weight with flavours of bracken, blackberry, raspberry and spice. Minimal oak. Ambitiously priced.
