Expert Reviews

Well above-average fruit concentration for the vintage; spends several years in oak, but the fruit carries that oak, obvious though the latter may be. Overall quite luscious compared to previous vintages. Rating 94 - Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2007)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Prodigy 2003 has a seductive bouquet of ripe raspberry, plum, anise and spice fruit, aromas with sweet vanillin and coffee bean oak maturation tones.

Palate

Opulent in structure, the palate is a seamless marriage of rich, ripe fruit and spice flavours with complex oak maturation characters. Fine, soft tannins support a long, lingering finish.

Cellaring Potential

This outstanding wine will continue to develop and integrate over 10 to 20 years cellaring.
