REVIEWS

2007 Allandale Semillon

“Beautifully toasty, honeyed lemon development obvious on the nose with a generous yet elegant palate that is brimming over with custard apple and crème brulle-like flavours.”
“5 Stars”, Winestate Magazine, July 2012

2011 Allandale Semillon

“Zesty lemon citrus and green straw nose. Palate is bright and lively with lemon sorbet-like flavours. Good example of the variety.”
“4 Stars”, Winestate Magazine, July 2012

2008 Allandale Cabernet Sauvignon

“Moody fruit/oak aromas with intense depth of varietal fruit and cedar oak on the palate.”
Winestate Magazine, August 2010

2004 Allandale Semillon

“Glowing, almost iridescent green gold; the screwcap has done its job to perfection, allowing the wine to develop just a touch of honey to join the citrus flavours, without a hint of tiredness. Now or in another 10 years…”
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011

“The sister wine to this (an ’03) won a trophy last year and the price jumped 50%. Grab hold of this before it does the same thing…”
NSW Wine Uncovered, 2010

2008 Allandale Chardonnay

“I used to drink a lot of this in my younger days because it was always exceptional value for money. After tasting this, clearly it still is. It is true to the Allandale style… A versatile wine that will shine whether it be at a backyard barbeque or in a classy restaurant. Good value…”
Rick Allen, Manly Daily, July 24th 2009

“There’s superb balance in this very attractive Hunter wine. A blend of barrel fermented, wood aged and unoaked components result in stone fruit/figgy characters and nutty nuances. Complex and elegant…”
Wine of the Week, Winsor Dobbin, June 6th 2009

2007 Matthew Shiraz

“Here’s terrific value in Hunter Shiraz… from grapes from a Pokolbin vineyard with 40 year old, unirrigated vines…”
Newcastle Herald, 2009

“Bright, clear crimson-purple; high-flavoured and lively… intense blackberry and plum fruit offset by very integrated American oak… excellent development potential…”
James Halliday, NSW Wine Uncovered 2009
