Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
More assertive than usual, with layers of depth and structure. Its exotic, musky bouquet of spicy honeysuckle, melon and citrusy fruit has a smoky, clove-like note and a whiff of orange blossom. It's long and charmingly balanced, with a rich, slightly funky presence of fruit extending down a chalky spine towards a savoury, smoky finish of lingering fruit, appealingly wild complexity and refreshing acidis. Very classy.

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
This Yarra blended white has lovely freshness and concentration here in 2011, showing melon and citrus notes on the nose, some peach and lemon in the mix and a hint of fragrant, saffron-like spice. The palate s beatifully struck, with crisp acidity at its core and lovely, fleshy stone fruit and melon flavours, hnts of baking spice, really smoothly integrated and balanced.

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Stylish and elegant, with a delicate, waxy and floral bouquet of citrus, melon and honeysuckle backed by nuances of spice and minerals. It's long and shapely, delivering a brightly it, crystal clear expression of fresh melon and stonefruit flavour underpinned by lick of slate and culminating in a fresh, savoury and finely sculpted finish.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; at the dawn of its life, apple peel, citrus, spice and chalky acidity all waiting quietly for their time to come out. Has a proud pedigree.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Artfully gentle and reserved, this beautifully measured, elegant and savoury Rhone blend has a spicy fragrance of cinnamon, honeysuckle, cloves and white flowers with mealy undertones. It's long and delicate, with a deep, but reserved core of fresh melon/citrus flavour underpinned by soft phenolics, finishing with fresh acids and a lingering dustiness.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Not your everyday Marsanne Roussanne, this is a wine of pretty, delicate lemon blossom perfume and a textural, restrained and honed palate, built around a framework of minerality and lingering citrus.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright green-gold; by far the most distinguished of these Rhone-style blends in Australia, grown at Yeringberg over 100 years ago, and now with well over 30-year-old marsanne. Powerful, it is a minerally framework for honeysuckle to climb on, honey and toast to come in the years ahead.

Delicious, medium-bodied dry white with honeysuckle.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Smooth and seamless, this finely integrated and savoury Rhone blend has a delicate fragrance of honeysuckle, lemon, white flowers, cloves and reserved oak that overlies a whiff of mineral. Its restrained, elegant palate of stonefruit, melon and honeysuckle finishes with dusty nuances of almond and rose oil, finishing with delightful length, balance and movement.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Spotlessly clean; the wine is a born-in- the-purple stayer, fabulously tight and focused; in 10 years will still look like a 5-year-old and live for further decades if the Diam lives up to its hopes.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Brightly focused, long and mineral, this juicy, crystalline white blend has a floral, lemony aroma of nectarine-like fruit and a generous palate of tangy, vibrantfruit. It finishes smooth and generous,with tight acids and definition.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A clean, but relatively tight and unyielding bouquet; the palate is similar, but prior vintages show how this wine emerges from pupae to shimmering butterfly given enough time; simply buy it and cellar it for reward.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Tighter and leaner than most of its predecessors, this finely focused, delicate and pristine young wine has raciness and structure. Its nutty aromas of tangerine and honeysuckle reveal mineral under-tones, while its finely honed palate neatly wraps its grapefruit-like flavours in nervy acidity. Likely to evolve with appealing complexity.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Clean, fresh, herb/spice/pear/green apple flavours; long, balanced palate and good acidity; 10 years minimum.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Stony aromas of lime juice, lemon zest and honeysuckle overlie nuances of spices and minerals. Long and restrained, becoming more nutty and savoury towards the finish, it's generously proportioned as well as charmingly complex and elegant.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Dusty, dry and savoury, this complex, nutty and chalky wine has a light lemony perfume of apples and cloves with tightly integrated fine-grained oak influences. There's length and tightness, with a fleshy middle of nutty stonefruit and citrus flavours. Quite assertive for this label, it does finish with customary length and restraint.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; spotlessly clean, firm, mineral, honeysuckle and apple aromas are followed by a palate with immaculate balance and mouthfeel; once again, there is a touch of honeysuckle and light spices; demands years. At 14°, fully ripe.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; a scented, floral, lemon blossom bouquet is followed by a palate with excellent mouthfeel, found and quite lush, but not phenolic. A twist of lemony acidity on the finish adds to the appeal of a quite delicious wine, promising much for the future.
