James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2016


Limited Release Old Vine Bendigo Shiraz 2009

"Hums with flavours, rattles with tannin, delights with perfume. Six years old and singing a melodious song. Blackberry, tar, mint and musky, floral tones sink into rich, luscious leather. An enthralling drink now, as it shall remain for many years to come". Drink to 2029 Rating 96

Bendigo Estate Shiraz 2012

"Good colour, a splash of vanillan/coffeed oak and a wealth of grainy, tannin-shot fruit. This is a sure contender for the cellar. Sweet, ripe blackberry and violet with mint notes at modest levels. Not exactly bright, but fresh and lively enough. Indeed, all seems in excellent order." Drink to 2032 Rating 94 

Bendigo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

"Mid-weight wine in the classic mould. Fruit folded with oak and tannin. Succulent flavours of mint, blackberry, peppercorn and blackcurrant, with gently creamy oak adding a slippery smoothness. Dry tannin comes soaked in juicy fruit. Length of flavour is a feature." Drink to 2030 Rating 94
