Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Loaded with vibrant red fruits, lots of spice and a savory minerality at its core, this wine displays a long rich and complex array of flavors on the finish.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Very oaky style with some barnyardy ´pong on the nose, and a perfectly balanced sweet plum fruit palate with a sprinkling of pepper and warm alcohol.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
While the wine has had plenty of exposure to new oak, it has been a prolific gold medal and trophy winner, the intense cool-climate shiraz carrying the oak.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
The best '03 red in the Sydney Wine Show '06; polished, elegant, fine and long; no dead fruit character; classy oak handling. One of 2 gold medals to Plunkett in Class 57, topping the 7 gold medals in this large class.

Powerful and concentrated, medium- to full-bodied; abundant luscious black fruits; very good tannins, oak and structure. Significant wine show awards.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Full red-purple; the bouquet is replete with dark berry fruits, blackberry and spice; the palate is likewise flooded with sweet blackberry fruit nicely supported by sweet oak and ripe, fine tannins.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; there is a complex array of aromas on the bouquet, moving through spice, berry, mint and leaf, the palate following on with lively, spicy/savoury highlights to the core of sweet berry fruit. Fine tannins and well-integrated oak complete the picture.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the clean bouquet has attractive, varietal spicy liquorice aromas. These characters come through as the palate opens, providing a range of spicy, savoury, dark berry flavours; has length and concentration, finishing with fine tannins and subtle oak.
