Classic old fashioned Mississippi mudcake flavours abound in this soulful, moody darkness from the Larncrk flats. But there are also faint hints of the ethereal minty eucalypt which makes it very Australian. It's sweetish, but not cloying, with fi ne old reedy, fennel-like tannins adding a little acrid edge to the finish. It’s like a leathery old sock. You could drink it with chevre, or snaky delta blues. Rating: 93 Points; Philip White

Goodness,. A bouquet of cracked pepper and plum pudding slides into a rich, glossy palate that's swimming with black satsuma plum and cracked pepper, amid a sea of very fine tannins. ... this wine is as well constructed as ever, and still represents the best value in sparkling red in the country. Rating: 92 Points; Tyson Stelzer

Deep red colour with the last vestiges of purple tint. Ripe plummy bouquet, clean and fresh, and not shrill or simplistic. A tinge of spice, earth and faint chocolate. The palate is full, and round, soft and smooth, balanced and clean on the finish with a touch of cleansing tannin. There's plenty of sweetness mid-palate, then a clean, drying finish. Cleverly balanced wine. This would have wide appeal. Rating: 90 Points; Huon Hooke
 
Bright colour; spiced damsel plum bouquet, with a rich fruitcake palate; quite sweet, but the finish is fresh and the tannin drying; well-balanced. Rating: 90 Points; James Halliday
