Staff Reviews

Ric McLeod - Premier Wine & Spirits September 24, 1997

"Dinner’s over, the children are asleep and you just finished snow blowing the driveway, now’s the time to relax and treat yourself to a glass, or two, of Port and a fine cigar. Mahogany in color, this eight year old tawny is decadently rich and sweet, highlighted with caramel aromatics and flavors. Enjoy the moment, you deserve it."

Critical Acclaim

SP94 Wine Spectator May 31, 1997

"Succulent and smooth, this tremendously complex tawny is layered with caramel, walnut, coffee, almond and orange peel flavors, long, elegant and spicy in the mouth. All this and wow, what a price — this wine could double as a best buy. 5,000 cases made." (94 pts.)

WE88 Wine Enthusiast 12/15/2007

"This widely available, bargain-priced tawny remains an Australian classic, offering toffee and walnut aromas and flavors along with dust-covered leather and just a hint of fresh fruit. It’s lighter in weight than you might expect from a Port-inspired New World wine, but offers a tasty drop on a wintry evening. Imported by Pacific Wine Partners." (88 pts.)

ST88 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jul/Aug 1999

"Tawny-orange color. Clean, bright aromas of orange peel, raisin, walnut, butter and honey. Very sweet and smooth, with flavors similar to the aromas. The orange peel quality and lively acids keep this port fresh and rather bracing. Finishes quite firm, with almond and nut skin notes." (88 pts.)

Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
