2013 Tyrrells Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon
'The Emperor, shy but strident, wearing a myriad of citrus and orchard colours and a tensile sash of calm, and poise. This majestic wine's lightweight belies its sheer stretch of flavours across the palate. Energetic and gently grippy; tightly wound but bristling with mineral intent. Bottle age has softened this ever so slightly. Nothing more. An Australian classic in the making!'
97 Points - Ned Goodwin, Halliday's Wine Companion 2019
'Classic in the making. Straw-green, slight spritz, excellent intensity yet still manages to trip lightly from the attack to the extended finish. Citrus, wax, anise and green herbs but beautifully integrated. Complete.'
96 Points - Campbell Mattinson
'Clean, lemon, lime, light honeyed tones - subdued - and then? A powerhouse palate presenting juicy, almost sweet, citrus fruit that fills the mouth - remarkable presence for such a light wine. Subtle powdery texture and pure acidity. Length to burn. A classic Vat 1.'
96 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
'Very subtle aromas of sliced lemon, apple and pear. Steel too. Full body, bright acidity and a vivid finish. Love the focus and beauty to this. Creamy mouth feel. Drink now. Screw cap.'
94 Points - Nick Stock
1 x Trophy, 5 x Gold Medals, 13 x Silver Medals, 15 x Bronze Medals
2012 Barringwood Recently Disgorged Blanc de blanc
'This goes for the jugular, unleashing straight chardonnay across an astounding 5 years of lees ageing, equipped with a judicious dollop of 2g/l of dosage. This is cool climate Australian sparkling, making sense in terms of its makeup, while resounding with drinkability. Orchard fruits, nashi pear gelato and tangerine, all ringing with an urgency across saliva-inducing acidity and a whiff of brioche. Profound.'
97 Points - Ned Goodwin M.W, Halliday Wine Companion
2016 Kooyong Faultline Chardonnay
'Jittery. Nervous. Chalky. Subtle. The most reticent of the swag. Apricot pith and faint stone fruit allusions jangle across a beam of vanilla-cedar oak, a skein of mineral tension and a core of mealy nourishment. This will age beautifully, attested to by the pulse of flavour, thrilling complexity and exhilarating length. This does need patience, though. Buy and wait.'
97 Points - Ned Goodwin MW
'Slowly working through the Kooyong single vineyard releases. It’s one of the more pleasant tasks a wine critic faces. Powerful release. A power of nectarine, grapefruit and tinned pineapple flavours, cut here with flint, oakspice and oatmeal. For all its power it remains tight, even coiled; every screw has been attended to. It finishes well too. Very good wine.'
93+ Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
2014 Stella Bella Seria Luminosa Cabernet Sauvignon
'Bright, clear crimson-purple - quite striking; a wine made without any compromise in the fruit selection or in the vinification, with a long pedigree of prior vintages of high quality. The bouquet is perfumed, the medium-bodied palate with a full array of cassis, redcurrant and blueberry fruits, bay leaf and superfine, but persistent tannins. Oh, and yes, French oak does make a contribution.'
97 Points - James Halliday
'Deep, bright red/purple hue and an interestingly different spicy berry aroma, dried herbs as well, some toast from oak, but all beautifully melded. The wine is firm and gritty in its texture, with lively acidity and some firmness in the tannins. The palate contains some herbal and almost corn-like flavours, and is quite individual. It's big, rugged and very full-bodied. A long termer.'
96 Points - Huon Hooke
'Milk chocolate and violets, redcurrant, cherry and mulberry, vanilla, spice and bay leaf. Medium bodied, fresh and lively, redcurrant and cocoa, fine grainy tannin, a touch of gum leaf perfume, and fine length. Fresh, elegant expression of Margaret River, and very good it is too.'
95 Points - Gary Walsh
2016 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir
'The vineyard was planted in '94 to clones 114 and 115, believed to have mutated into a single 'Sangreal' clone. Always made with 50-70% whole bunches, and 60-70% new oak maturation for 18 months. While the power of the wine is typical Farr, this vintage bestows a measure of linearity, a sinuous line to the palate that links and loops around the complex flavours of forest floor/spice and wild strawberry.'
97 Points - James Halliday, Halliday's Wine Companion
2012 Grant Burge Meshach Shiraz
'The 22nd release of Meshach celebrates the great '12 Barossa Valley vintage. The colour is still deep crimson-purple, setting the pattern for the bouquet and palate to follow. A wine of the highest quality in the Olympian class of Barossa Valley shiraz, seamless, calmly powerful and perfectly balanced. Black fruits dominate, but this is no one-dimensional power play, with hints of licorice, bitter chocolate and graphite. The tannins and oak contributions are perfectly placed and paced.'
98 Points - James Halliday
'Deep red/purple, youthful colour, and the bouquet screams coconut and vanilla toasted oak. The wine is full-bodied and very edgy, with bitter, aggressive oaky flavours predominating. A massive wine, outrageously oaky and demanding patience. I can’t imagine wanting to drink this for another four years, minimum. In other words, not till it's at least 10 years old. But it has undoubted concentration and richness.'
