Expert Reviews

The purple-red colour makes light of the vintage, the red and black fruits of the palate likewise, with cherry, plum, blackberry and blackcurrant all in play; the tannins are soft, the oak integrated. Exceptional achievement for the vintage. Rating 93 - Drink by 2026 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Originally established in 1974 by Graeme Leith and Sue Mackinnon, Passing Clouds at Bendigo is in a low rainfall area and the site was chosen to make great red wine with the lowest chemical inputs possible. No pesticides or insecticides are ever used in the vineyard. These practices are followed in our new cool climate vineyard at Musk, just outside of Daylesford in the Macedon Ranges. It is currently producing stunning pinot, chardonnay and sparkling. The winery has consistently produced medal winning wines with deep colours, rich flavours and a unique structure with excellent mouthfeel that place them with the very best Australian red wines. For instance Graeme’s Blend 2005 rates 93 points in James Halliday’s Wine Companion.
