Staff Reviews

Ric McLeod - Premier Wine & Spirits February 5, 2004

"On Christmas Eve we had our annual family gathering to celebrate the holidays. After dinner, we stepped out to the garage to enjoy cigars and libations; we’re forbidden to smoke in the house. My contribution was the Buller Tawny Port from Australia. We found the wine to be sweet, but not cloying, and adorned with a complex medley of toffee, cinnamon, walnut and raisin flavors that are fortified with a bonding dose of brandy. Cigar smoke swirled while the port slowly wove its magic. Conversations were fluid and stimulating as we covered a wide range of subjects, and the good times flowed. When consumed in moderation, wine captures a sweet moment in time and elevates one’s appreciation of what life has to offer."

Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2002

"The Victoria Tawny Port is a remarkable, sweet, concentrated, complex Tawny that can easily compete with Portugal’s finest… at a fraction of the price." (90 pts.)

ST88 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Sep/Oct 2009

"Faded red color. Cherry and red currant scents, with complicating notes of dried flowers and baking spices. Rich pit fruit and cherry flavors are firmed by tangy acidity and pick up a lush caramel quality on the back end. Very sweet but there’s ample acidity here to keep thins in focus. The finish repeats the spice notes and lingers with good persistence." (88 pts.)

SP86 Wine Spectator May 15, 2002

"Dark and juicy, with distinct earthy-gamy overtones to the coffee- and spice-scented cherry flavors, finishing moderately sweet. Drink now." (86 pts.)

WE85 Wine Enthusiast 12/15/2007

"More of a murky garnet than truly tawny, this inexpensive Port-style wine features chocolate, plum and prune flavors and a supple, silky mouthfeel." (85 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.
