Wine Press and Accolades

90 points - James Halliday – Aug 2019

From three vineyards in two districts, three different maturation techniques from 6-15 months in French oak (6% new) and stainless steel. It’s something borrowed, something blue vinification and fruit sources have come together well…

90 points - Huon Hooke – Jul 2018

Very youthful purple/red colour. The bouquet is very fresh and raspberry-like, with some blueberry highlights and a medium to full body, with abundant soft tannins, fleshy extract and lovely balance. Some fresh herbs as well. Excellent drinkability.

90 points - Toni Paterson MW - The Real Review – Sep 2018

Wafting aromatics of raspberries and a little white pepper. The mid-palate is extremely concentrated with intense red plum and a little pink marshmallow. Acidity ties everything together. Great value.

94 points - Kim Brebach - BWU$20 – Jun 2018

This will make you sit up and pay attention. Big, rich and generous, red fruits and hints of oak, classic Barossa Shiraz, muscular but already good drinking a day or two after opening. 5 – 8 years will see it blossom. BUY.

92 Points – Tony Keys - The Key Report – Jan 2016

“A very sound Barossa Shiraz and at $18 worth the money”

92 Points + 4.5 glasses – Halliday Wine Companion – Dec 2015

“Beautifully put together. The fruit loads, the tannin rolls, oak slides into general contention and throughout everything remains bright, attractive, satisfying. Plums, earth, voilets, cloves. Excellent buying.”

93/94 Points – Kim Brebach - BWU $20 – Oct 2015

“Phil Lehmann has done it again: produced a soft, seductive Shiraz, a velvet glove without the iron fist. Gorgeous sweet fruit from the nose to the toes, this is hard to put down. It’s not really a wine for the cellar and that’s just as well since you wouldn’t be able to keep your hands off it.”

91 Points – Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front – Sep 2015

“Barossa Valley. From the Koonunga Hill sub-district. This wine jumped out of a line-up this morning. Very handy value. This is good stuff. Just what the doctor ordered. Fruit-filled, firm, dark-ish, satisfying. It tastes of sweet plums, peppercorns, violets and earth. But the overall effect, the vibrancy, the ways it fills the mouth – is what screams buys me, drink me.”
