96 Points awarded to our Margaret River Chardonnay

Leading Australian wine writer Huon Hooke recently reviewed our 2018 Reserve Chardonnay for The Real Review, awarding it 96 Points!

You can read and watch the full review below, Thanks Huon.

"Light yellow, bright colour. Passionfruit and tropical aromas, a tinge of grapefruit, some slaty mineral notes, quite pungent and passionfruity, with an undercurrent of chewy tannin on the aftertaste. There is a shrillness to the wine and a definite Gingin clone style to the fruit. Delicious." Drink 2021 -2028

Equal Top Wine - World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge

Equal Top Wine - World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge

Our 2001 Shiraz Cabernet has done it again! Equal top wine in The World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge in the latest issue of Winestate Magazine.
[September 2021]

This award winning shiraz blend has aged gracefully - achieving 5 Stars and 98 points in both The 2015 and 2021 World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge. In the latest competition it was equal top to Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace - a great accolade for an 'aged' Margaret River wine from one of the region's smallest, but most highly regarded boutique wineries. 

SHOP - 2001 Shiraz Cabernet

"A beautifully matured wine. Makes you think of a comfortable old leather chair. It is generous and brooding and drinking very well right now."
98 Points Winestate Magazine - Worlds Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2021

“An exceptional group of concentrated wines.” Agreed the judges. “I have not seen a better flight of shiraz and syrah wines with such a lovely level of elegance and concentration.” said one judge. “These are not over extracted and show beautiful balance of expensive, appropriately handled oak, with the expressive fruit.” “Again the aged wines showed their pedigree, fabulous wines of great character and consistency.” Said another.
Judges comments, Winestate Magazine - Worlds Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2021

“Lovely example of the great Aussie blend. It is still amazingly bright and alive, beautifully complex with a perfect, seamless palate.”
5 Stars Winestate Magazine - World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2015

“An awesome class of iconic wines. Here we see delivery of harmonious, intense wines with length and complexity but above all - drinkability!”

A decadent glass of fortified wine

A decadent glass of fortified wine

Nice feature on our Artizan Rare Muscat by Young Gun of Wine recently…

“A decadent glass of fortified, rippling with raisin, fig, date and coffee notes, this is rich and unctuous, but with the fortifying alcohol lifting the sweetness, leaving endless layers of flavour to linger on the palate.”

“Made from a solera that dates back nearly 40 years, this is rich with classic mature fortified muscat flavours, with notes of dried figs, dates, rum-soaked raisins, toffee, coffee grounds, brandy-soused plum pudding and dark spices, with hints of clove, cinnamon and brown cardamom. Those flavour cascade onto the viscous palate, with toasted walnuts and treacle joining in, the fortifying alcohol gently cutting through the richness, giving this lift through the back palate, flavours persisting for minutes.”

Nominated for Wine of the Year - 98 Points

Nominated for Wine of the Year - 98 Points

2017 Reserve Chardonnay 
In the latest edition of Winestate Magazine our Chardonnay has been awarded 98 points and is in the running for Wine of the Year. We are very proud of this wine and it’s string of accolades. The pristine fruit is intense and layered with minerality, smoky oak and linear acidity which form a taut framework that hallmarks future greatness. 

A still amazingly youthful, fruit driven style with lovely flow and balance of pretty pear and stone fruit varietal characters. The acid backbone ties it all together.
98 Points Winestate Magazine 2021

Hint of bay leaf, snappy green apple and grapefruit to both nose and palate. There’s a terrific Margaret River purity of fruit expression. Purity without being a zinger. Some apple skin bloom and a vinous, wild lift to the finish. Very tightly wound, but pure and long!” 
98 Points Decanter Magazine - Exceptional

Big, bold grapefruit, peach and apricot aromas here with a gently flinty and toasty edge. The palate has a very composed, seamless and fresh feel with juicy, focused and smooth-honed peaches and lemons.”

Results from the world’s largest and most influential wine competition have been announced overnight in London. Our 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and 2018 Reserve Chardonnay have just won GOLD!  
Wonderful recognition for these two International superstars! 

2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Remarkably solid for a wine at this age. Cassis and fresh blackcurrant still at the fore with subtle notes of undergrowth. Still lots of energy.
Gold Medal - 95 points Decanter World Wine Awards 

2018 Reserve Chardonnay 
Super-pungent in style, with an alluring perfume augmented by gunflint, coriander and bay leaf, couched in explosive citrus, guava and glossy exotic fruit. Silky and fine, with a salty texture.
