Expert Reviews

Crisp, clean nose with attractive pear and fejoa - like aromas. Flinty / earthy palate with good varietal flavour profile. Winestate Oct-09

Crisp, crunchy Packham pear-smelling with a sniff of fennel tops. This has plenty of crunchy juicy flavours: a mix of the pear flesh and skin, with sweet-sharp textures and flavours. A touch of currant, too, and just the right amount of chew. Ralph Kyte Powell The Age 28 Aug-09

90 Points. Pear fruit and some complex candided orange zest aromas on the bouquet; generous and quite full, but finished with fresh acidity and a lingering pear-fresh flavour. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09
