94 Points James Halliday

Strong red-purple; a firm, tightly focused wine; intense black fruits; a full-bodied wine which still has a few sharp edges to soften, but should develop superbly over time. Drink to 2025.

"It’s an excellent vintage from a vineyard that, in 2004, turned 100 – it was planted way back in 1904, before Gallipoli, just after Federation, yahda yahda yahda. These vineyards are living, breathing, drinking history and Australia is extremely blessed to have them. The wine itself is right in the Aberfeldy groove. Loaded with soft, mushy, slippery (French-coopered), malty American oak, packed with mint-dipped, plum-drenched fruit, aided by a leathery drinkability and tight and highly focussed on the finish – if perhaps a little too acidic. I personally think that this wine would look even better if the oak wasn’t so aggressive, but in this vintage I do agree that the wine is composed, opulent, stylish and essentially balanced. 15% alcohol."

Drink: 2006-2022.
