...which is nice




I’ve never been a big one for the show circuit and such, but it’s always nice when you get a few kind words from people you respect to show that you’re on the right track.

We have been fortunate to have received some great reviews, including 96 points for our 2010 Syrah and 91 points for the 2011 Chardonnay from James Halliday, together with a debut 4 and a half star winery rating in the Wine Companion.

Here’s a little of what people are saying about our wine:

“Has retained excellent hue, and has exceptional texture and flavour, with the weight of the wines of Yarra Yering; dark fruits, multi-spices, ripe tannins and oak all contribute to what will be a tremendously long-lived wine”  96 points Drink to 2040 - James Halliday Wine Companion

"Blow me down, this is wickedly good…It’s a wilder expression and herbal/mezcal bass lines run through the wine, but it’s undeniably good, pure, fine and seductive if you’re into the expression given by using the whole of the cluster. That being said, it shows a full deck of fruit flavour too. Chewiness of chalky phenolics seals the deal. Good wine here. I’ll be hoping to follow this producer."  92 points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

So I’ve got that going for me…which is nice.
