97 points James Halliday: "From the red volcanic soils of Woori Yallock. Hand-picked and sorted, 100% destemmed and wild-fermented with 21 days on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (10% new). Has the wonderful colour, and the fragrance of spices, forest and red fruits, the palate with luscious fruit encased in silky tannins. Has the balance and length of great young Pinot whatever its provenance. " (08/2019) 96-97 points James Suckling: "Tasted the final blend pre-bottling. A parcel from the Henk Vineyard. This has an entrancing nose of ripe ...

2017 Oakridge "Original Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Yarra Valley Victoria
Top Pick!
97 points Bob Campbell: "Medium to deep red/purple colour with a bright, fresh, clean cabernet aroma of sweet cassis and background cedar. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with restrained but glorious flavour, and is slightly closed. It has a tight, firm palate, but reveals more and more blackberry, blackcurrant cabernet character as it airs in the glass. It's elegant and texturally refined. A beautiful cabernet with a big future. It demands patience. (Fruit is off the original Oakridge vineyard at Seville, to mark the Oakridge 40th anniversary.) (Huo...

94 points James Suckling: "This sits in the typical, just Cabernet-dominant style (54%) and marries cassis, blueberries, leaves and cedary-dominant aromas with more substantial blackberries and dark cherries, as well as redder tones at the finish. The regional sourcing here is cleverly played and delivers a fleshy, soft and smooth wine in 2017. Long, vanilla-laced after-trail. Drink over the next fifteen years. A stallion in the cellar!" (07/2019) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, smooth and supple, showing off cedar, black tea and sandalwood aromas,...

96 points Decanter: "Ethereal, intriguing nose of yellow fruits, wild flowers and citrus. Hints of wet stone and green apple on the palate, leading to a very long finish." (10/2019) 95 points James Halliday: "Contract-grown fruit is whole-bunch pressed and wild-fermented in French oak (25% new), lees-stirred, mlf prevented, matured for 9 months. Elegantly composed and balanced, with white peach, pear and citrus flavours spread across a lengthy canvas. An each way bet, now or later. Xanadu at work again." (08/2019) 95 points James Suckling: "Peach-cus...

92 points Decanter: "The richer counterpart to Bin 128, this warm-climate blend of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit (no Upper Adelaide or Wrattonbully fruit in this vintage) is a deep, primary dark ruby colour. And yet it's from a cool growing season, with the harvest finishing a month later than the previous year. It displays a subdued, spicy richness of aroma spliced with a hint of cooler vintage pepper. The palate though is typically generously fruited, with blackberry fruit infused with Penfolds’ trademark toasty vanillin American oak - an u...

These are a bunch of white varietals that aren’t ever found in the same region, so this wine explores the beauty of Australia’s sense of wine lawlessness. Chenin is for longevity meaning this wine will flourish in the cellar over the next ten years. Gewurztraminer literally translates into "spicy grape" and it adds both texture and spice to this wine. Gruner Veltliner is a textural component and supports the bottom end of the wine. And finally, Riesling, being solely pressings that went through both MLF and primary ferment in barrel adds a little touch o...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Art Series Chardonnay is tight but rich, with guava and pineapple fruit reined in by lemony accents. Yes, there's oak, but it's in the background to the concentrated fruit in this silky-textured, medium to full-bodied effort. Based on the superb concentration, length and an admirable track record, it should age well through at least 2030. " (01/2020) 93 points James Halliday: "Fermented in French barriques (40% new) and 9 months on lees with regular stirring. Fruit-driven bouquet with pear, citrus and...

95 points James Halliday: "57% malbec, 37% petit verdot, 6% merlot, hand-picked on 11 Feb '17, when a total eclipse occurred, turning the moon red. Wild-fermented, matured for 9 months in French oak (10% new). It's a delectably juicy red berry wine with minimal interference from tannins, but will be no pushover as it ages. " (09/2019) K&L Notes: *Natural Wine* *Biodynamic*

92 points Wine Spectator: " Shows appealing density and a savory thread, featuring rosemary, sage and loam details that mingle with firm currant and dried cherry flavors. Herbal shadings gain traction on the finish along with the dense tannins, adding an appealing fresh green note. Drink now through 2033. " (12/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There's no Bin 707 from the 2017 vintage, so that fruit has been put into the 2017 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a lifted, perfumed style of Cabernet aged in both French and American hogsheads,...

100 points James Suckling: "More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has excelled in vintage 2017. The nose carries pristine aromas of raspberries, red plums and mulberries in gently spicy repose. The palate unfurls layers and layers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavors with tannins that seem to hold endlessly on the finish. Pitch-perfect and noble. An essay in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Burgundy and maybe Musigny too! This really ought to be left alone for a decade" (10/2018) 97 points Bob Campbell: "De...

94 points James Halliday: "Picked and fermented parcel by parcel, destemmed, 14 days on skins, matured in new and used French and American hogsheads for 12 months. The mouthfeel is excellent, supple and smooth, the medium-bodied flavours a neat blend of black fruits, dark chocolate and a gently savoury seasoning. Great value. " (08/2019) 93 points Sam Kim: "A beautifully composed shiraz; the elegantly lifted bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark plum, vanilla, cocoa and cedar characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is succulent and smooth. The...


93 points James Halliday: "Wild yeast barrel fermentation gives a lift and a twist to the bouquet, with reductive notes that add to the interest of the wine, the palate driven by grapefruit and white peach, mirror-smooth in comparison to the bouquet. Will gain complexity without losing freshness for several years. " (08/2019) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Xanadu’s least expensive chardonnay is two-thirds fermented in barrel, the balance in stainless steel. Only about five percent of the finished blend has seen new oak, and the wine is so fresh you might t...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Central Otago Pinot Noir comes out of the chute a bit green and stemmy (it's 50% whole cluster). It clearly needs a year or two to settle down and integrate that element with the bold cherry fruit, but I have little doubt that those components will come together in time, resulting in a wine that's substantially more attractive than it is currently. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample ripeness, silky tannins and solid length on the finish, all of which augur well for the future. It's made at Giant Step...

95 points James Halliday: "dry-grown bushvines, wild-fermented with 50% whole berries and 50% whole bunches, 6 days post-ferment maceration, matured in French hogsheads (25% new). A fragrant and pure bouquet and palate, both sending the same message, are the starting point for this beautifully detailed wine. It's actually quite firm on the palate, but it comes from the fruit not tannins, so it can be missed. The length and finish reveal just how complex the wine is." (05/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made from a single plot of organically farmed ol...

93 points James Suckling: "What a beautiful red with lemons, grated orange zest, rose petals, raspberries and sour cherries. Medium-bodied and energetic on the palate with lively, red and blue fruit and a serious tannin backbone. Drink now. Screw cap." (06/2019) K&L Notes: *Natural Wine*


93 points James Halliday: "A 60/40% blend, separate lots fermented in open or closed vessels, matured in used barriques for 12 months prior to blending. It's medium-bodied at best, but there's no shortage of flavour, and sufficient extract to provide texture (and length). Attractive wine, with McLaren Vale's stamp on it from the word go. Drink by 2034 " (05/2019) 90 points James Suckling: "There’s a real sense of depth and ripe berries here with raspberry and blueberry-pastry aromas, leading to licorice and violet-like flowers. The palate has a thread...
