James Suckling "...Fantastic release....A dense, layered Champagne with a full body and lots of creamy texture. Lovely cooked apple and pie crust. 40% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and 30% pinot noir. The base was 2015, but in total it contains 10 harvests. It was bottled at the beginning of 2016 and disgorged in March 2020. Four years on lees. "

Wine Enthusiast "A sophisticated wine (a blend of the three Champagne grapes), this is a new release from this producer. It is dry, but the ripeness of the fruit offers a fine balance with the crisp, green-apple texture."

Wine Spectator "Firm and toasty, this tightly knit example features grilled nut and smoke accents that lace the crunchy pear and lemon curd flavors. Drink now."

Natalie MacLean "A crisp, dry, elegant Champagne from one of the region's (Champagne's) most respected producers. Notes of green apple and lime with a toasted bread finish. Pair with shellfish."

Billecart-Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. Most of Billecart-Salmon's fruit comes from a small vineyard holding, though this is supplemented with grapes bought in from the Marne Valley and the Montagne de Reims. Meticulous production techniques, from the use of their own cultured yeast to its long, slow, cool fermentation, ensure that the family has 100 percent control of production.

1 x Brokenwood ILR Reserve Semillon 2014 ~ Hunter Valley, Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia

James Halliday "Pale straw-green - an extraordinary colour of an extraordinary wine. A fragrant bouquet floats out of the glass and introduces a palate that has the best of all worlds: lemon, lemon curd, beeswax and fruit spice with no hint of the searing acidity Hunter Valley semillon can throw at the unwary. Here it is perfectly (and naturally) balanced. A worthy companion to the sublime Graveyard Shiraz '18."

Huon Hooke "Light to medium-yellow, bright and luminous, with a wonderfully complex yet fresh bouquet of toasty-developed semillon fruit, hints of dried herbs, lemon and resiny traces. The flavour is voluminous: it fills the mouth and is intense and superbly harmonious, with refreshing dryness and cleansing but seamlessly balanced acidity. A very long follow-through and a clean finish. A magnificent example of semi-mature Hunter semillon."

James Suckling "A great rendition of this unique Hunter Valley style. Has a very fresh, attractive nose with a gently waxy edge, as well as grassy notes and pristine lemon peel. The combination of primary fruit freshness and steady development in bottle is good here. The palate has a very sleek, concentrated delivery of quite pure lemon. The concentrated fruit is folded snugly around a long line of acidity. Drink now, or cellar for a decade plus. Screw cap."

The ILR Reserve Semillon is named after Chief Winemaker and Managing Director Iain Leslie Riggs, who joined the winery in 1982. Iain has taken Brokenwood from a small ‘hobby’ winery into the national and international arena, and was the driving force in Brokenwood extending the range to white wines.The ILR Reserve Semillon is an aged white wine that receives no oak.

Silver 94 - Decanter World Wine Awards 2021

James Halliday "Matured in French and American hogsheads (18% new) for 18 months. The bouquet does indeed bellow from the glass like that a euphonium. It has a swag of red, black and purple fruits all in tune, something very different for drinking now."

Wine Enthusiast "This blend of old-vine Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is open and fragrant yet powerful and dense right from the get go. Concentrated damson plum and black currant are backed by notes of dark chocolate, licorice, eucalyptus and tomato leaf, with a sanguine nuance. The tannins are powerful and drying but hold the silky fruit neatly in place. Drink 2023–2035. Christina Pickard"

Robert Parker "A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Keyneton Euphonium beautifully marries the mint and herb of the Bordeaux varieties with the plumminess and spice of the Shiraz. Hints of mint, tea and violets accent dark, plummy fruit, then finish with savory overtones of black olive. It's full-bodied and supple, ready to drink now or age 15 or more years."

Henschke is regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia. Critic James Halliday describes Henschke's "Hill of Grace" as "second only to Penfolds Grange as Australia's red wine icon". The winery has gone from strength to strength over the past three decades under the guidance of winemaker Stephen and viticulturist Prue Henschke. The red wines fully capitalize on the very old, low-yielding, high-quality vines and are superbly made with sensitive but positive use of new small oak. All Henschke vineyards are farmed biodynamically.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world. It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa Valley, Coonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood.

Bronze - International Wine Challenge (2009 Vintage)

James Halliday 5 Star Winery
James Halliday Top 100 Winery 2017

James Suckling ""A phenomenal wine that is the fruit of a small plot dating back to 1853. This has a very soulful array of red-plum and mulberry aromas and flavors and a sweeping wave of tannin, which, even though very discreetly, powers a very long and smooth finish.""

The Winemaker ""The Old Garden vineyard is the oldest Mourvèdre vineyard in the world planted in 1853. Dry-grown, original existing vines pre-Phylloxera. Eight rows of this rare and unique planting remain to this day at Rowland Flat and produce winemaker Dean Hewitson’s much-lauded single-vineyard table wine bearing the Old Garden name. The vineyard has been hand-tended and dry-farmed by Friedrich Koch and his direct descendants across three centuries.""

Andy Saxon ""Aged for 18 months in new French oak this full bodied red wine offers lifted forest berry, black cherry and orange peel aromas. The palate shows dense, lush blackberries and prune with hints of cigar box, violets and black pepper. Fine, seamlessly integrated tannins.""

James Halliday ""The 2-acre Old Garden Vineyard was planted in 1853 and is recognised as the world's oldest mourvedre vineyard, producing only 5 tonnes, 25% whole bunches included in the ferment, matured in new French oak. Great colour for a '14 wine, still vivid and clear; super-intense, super-juicy; the quality and character take hold immediately you take the first sip, the bouquet a deceptively serene introduction. It is one of the most seductively savoury (or vice versa) wines of this medium-bodied style I can remember."" (2014 vintage)

Australian Wine Companion ""Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. Hewitson fruit is sourced from historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also from single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.""

Hewitson fundamentally believes great wines are the expression of the soils they are grown in and the season in which they are grown. With his longstanding focus on terroir—specific terroir plots in fact—many of Hewitson’s wines are single vineyard. He sources grapes from not only his own vineyards, but also from long standing grower contracts including a few sourced from some of the oldest living, still productive vines on plots that date back to the mid-19th century and are pre-phylloxera. His ‘Old Garden’ Mourvèdre is a single-vineyard wine, whose vines were planted in 1853 in Barossa Valley and are reputed to be the oldest Mourvèdre vines in the world. Hewitson’s ‘Miss Harry’ is sourced from a Grenache vineyard planted in 1880, also thought to be the oldest Grenache in existence.

Te Mata Estate is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most important wine producers

Sam Kim "The palate is concentrated, focused and delightfully flowing with outstanding depth and intensity, while remaining elegant and poised, leading to an extremely long expansive finish. Harmonious, seamless and flawlessly precise. Combining exquisite refinement and undeniable power, this latest offering is another stunning beauty under this iconic label....The gorgeously perfumed bouquet shows Black Doris plum, sweet raspberry, violet, olive and toasted almond characters with a whiff of fragrant spice. "

Jancis Robinson "Confected black fruit, finely layered tannins, a touch of bacon and smoke on the finish. Dry, savoury, meaty persistence."

Cameron Douglas "A great bouquet, fine nose of Syrah with white and black peppercorn, roses and lavender, a core of red currants, black cherry and Doris plum, some sweet olive and new leather. Firm, youthful and dry with an abundance of tannins and acidity."

Decanter "A very modern take on Syrah which turns up the chocolate and cappuccino characters to create a rich and silky wine. There’s dark cherry and ripe raspberry fruit to balance the roasted coffee tannins with an acid spike. Extended skin contact and a warmish fermentation have given this depth and elegance."

Te Mata Estate is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most important wine producers. It is New Zealand's oldest winery, oldest wine estate and has the oldest winery cellars in the country - in continuous operation since 1895. Coleraine is Te Mata's most acclaimed wine and is often regarded as New Zealand's best red wine.

James Halliday 5 Star Winery

Yabby Lake's Pinot Noir is the first pinot ever to win the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards’ coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy in the trophy’s 52-year existence. (2012 vintage)

Jane Faulkner - James Halliday "There's a richness and ripeness of flavour perfectly reflecting the warmer vintage, without going over the top. Fragrant and floral, dark cherries spiced to the max, dabs of licorice, herbs and a smidge of wood char, with the oak neatly tucked in. Tannins have some emery board grip and the acidity is bright enough that you can enjoy it now or hold for a while."

Stuart Knox - The Real Review "Bright cherry-red hue. Bramble, black cherries and prosciutto on the nose. Medium-weight yet very intense, dark cherries, some mushroom notes alongside a smoked-meat character. Fine acids give a sense of freshness whilst a fine powder of tannins sets the line and carries the wine long and lingering into the finish. Plenty of cellaring potential here as well"
