Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Smoky barrel ferment characters woven through nectarine fruit; good acidity and intensity; exceptional length.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is clean, the aromas basically underplayed and certainly subtle; gentle fruit drives the light to medium-bodied palate, the oak evident but no more. Predominantly sourced from McLaren Vales and the Adelaide Hills, and partially barrel fermented.

Popped out of nowhere to win a gold medal at this year's Royal Sydney Wine Show. Partial barrel fermentation and maturation gives smoky overtones to die quite intense stone fruit of the bouquet; the fruit is still tight on the long palate, the French oak subtle. Aging impressively.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1999 Vintage) says
A new label from Hardys, designed to commemorate the company's old McLaren Vale winery and vineyards, and not to be confused (although we can see how you could) with the more expensive Tintara red wines (a shiraz and a grenache) which are packaged in much more expensive distinctive bottles with an etched logo. This is a blend of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills fruit and has lots of lovely, ripe flavour and lemony sweetness, but is balanced by some well-handled savoury oak flavours. A very stylish chardonnay at the price.
