4 Stars - "Oak driven altertive – quite full on vanilla characters on the nose and layers of oak, fruit and tight green acid that fill the palate, Very good." - Winestate Special Edition 2008 - December 2008.
94 Points - "A well handled complex style; maintains freshness and focus amidst the complex toasty oak; very long and quite mouthfilling with very good balance on the finish." - James Halliday - James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 - July 2008.
4 Stars / 92 Points - "A complex, rich barrel fermented sauvignon blanc-Semillon blend, showing intense tropical fruits, guava and passionfruit, some finer lemon grassy Semillon below and gentle oak spice. The oak impact on the palate weighs in on entry, deepening through the middle with preserved lemon and nutty/savoury complexity finishing fine and dry." - Nick Stock - Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 - November 2008.
