Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
This takes the verdelho to another level of length and intensity altogether, with the flavours spreading through the length and breadth of the palate, the fruit salad notes tempered by a job of citrus/lemon.

Made as a soft every day drinking wine style with soft acidity, its got a cut through of herbal fruit to the custard apple tropical aromas. The palate is fleshier and fuller than the Hunter Valley style and medium long with lingering flavours.

Achieves an extra level of texture and flavour in a region that shows how good verdelho can be.

Nectarine and lime bouquet and palate; quite fresh and zesty on entry; a distinct mineral character lengthens the palate and finish.

One of the secrets of Robert Channon Verdelho is its crisp, citrussy acidity which bolsters the more usual tropical fruit salad flavours leading to above-average length

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Has an abundance of ripe, even sweet, tropical fruit salad on the mid-palate, but finishes dry and quite firm.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Spotlessly clean; technically very well-made and balanced; simply lacks the zest which marks the very best verdelhos, and which Robert Channon does achieve in some years

Ken Gargett (2006 Vintage) says
It seems a long time ago that Robert Channon's tiny Granite Belt winery was being monstered by the world's largest Champagne producer, who seemed to be under the bizarre impression that Aussies might confuse this pint-sized maker of table wines with a giant French fizz concern. This gave Channon notoriety—but it's the amazing critical and popular success of his verdelho that's sustained the interest. This is another very good example.

Clean, floral fruit salad aromas; a very good palate, back to the best Channon standard, with plenty of fruit flavour and length; good acidity.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Clean; medium-bodied; fruit salad, with a touch of sweetness on the finish; does have length.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Aromatic, tangy fruit; works the same magic with the variety as Primo Estate does with Colombard; excellent length.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; the highly aromatic bouquet is spotlessly clean, with some zesty citrussy characters reminiscent of the best Primo Estate Colombards. The palate is, if anything, even better, with intense, long, racy passionfruit-accented flavours and great acidity. The best Australian Verdelho to ever cross my palate.
