Expert Reviews

20yo vines, machine-harvested, destemmed and crushed, open-fermented, cultured yeast, 3 days cold soak, matured in French and American oak (25% new) for 14 months. The good quality bottle and poor quality cork haven't enjoyed their marriage. The wine is in the tradition of Wolf Blass in terms of its oak influence, seemingly higher than 25% new, but that depends on the age and type of the other 75%. Did Neil McGuigan, whose thumbprint appears on the label, really hand-make this wine? I don't think so. It either means 99.5% of all Australian wines are handmade, or only 0.5% are. - James Halliday

This full bodied yet elegant wine bursts with the Christmas cake like flavour yet held together with soft supple tannins leading to a long lingering finish.A wine that will develop in the bottle for the next 10 years.Perfect when servedwith rich red meats such as slow cooked beef fillet with roasted vegetables.
