Expert Reviews

4.5 Stars/ Best Wines of 2007 "Very well made wine. Complex aromatics on the nose, hard to define but very attractive. Well aged palate with some excellent fruit still obvious and lovely soft tannins. Could do with even more time." Winestate Annual 2008 (Australia), January 08

90 Points "Blackberry and blackcurrant pastille, mint and gamey old tobacco and cedar smells. In the mouth medium to full bodied and still looking pretty fresh for a seven year old wine - full of bright slightly jammy red fruit mixing with a little prune and more savoury tobacco bottle age characters laid out on cedar wood. Firm but fine tannins provide grip and there’s a decent savoury finish. . . ." www.winefront.com.au, Gary Walsh (Australia), 09 Feb 09

Winery Tasting Notes

The ’02 Brigstock is deep red colour, with an inky, formic nose at first glance, coming from the Shiraz; plus notes of dried herbs (from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec); then some chocolate (from those expensive French oak barrels in which it slept for many months); plus a hint of leather (from bottle age). This is a lovely amalgam of fruit and winemaking influences, and touches of bottle maturation. It is genuinely complex in that many aromas are present, and all are in balance. The palate is dense but well-structured; a core of fresh acidity from the cool season sets the tone. While it is approaching mid-life there is not a hint of crisis, largely due to that acidity, but also its fruit-derived tight, dry tannins.
