We're humbled with the excellent results of the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion Awards. Four of our wines were included in The Best of the Best: 2020 Varietal Winners lists. These lists contain the crème de la crème of Australian wine, and reinforce our dedication to creating outstanding wines.
Making the 2020 Top Rated Chardonnay list; our inaugural 2017 Palladian Chardonnay.
"Estate-grown, matured for 9 months in Burgundian special toast puncheons. The bouquet has some smoky nuances, but wow, it gives no warning of the incredibly pure, intense and long palate, grapefruit and white peach locked in an eternal embrace."
98 points - James Halliday
Sold Out - Join our Wine Club to get pre-release access to the 2018 Palladian Chardonnay. This vintage will also be in limited supply.
On the 2020 Top Rated Cabernet Sauvignon list, is the 2015 Palladian Cabernet.
"This has an extraordinarily long finish and aftertaste, built on varietal purity. It's ethereal, a word I cannot remember often using for a cabernet. The texture, too, is exceptional, the oak absorbed into the essence of the wine."
97 points - James Halliday
$110 RRP. 10% off mixed dozens. 20% off for Wine Club members
Making the 2020 Top Semillon Sauvignon Blends list, both the sold out 2017 and 2018 Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc.
On the 2017 vintage, Halliday says;
"The style and quality of this wine has been respected (and protected) for upwards of two decades. Partial barrel ferment is subtle, but important in providing an extra degree of complexity and texture, but leaving the coast clear for the semillon to fly its lemon allsorts flag, the sauvignon blanc to float over the top with its tropical/green pea duo."
96 points - James Halliday.
Limited stock of the 2017 Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is available to wine club members.
The 2018 Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc -
"Both varieties were partially barrel-fermented, increasing the texture and complexity, but leaving the varietal character of each razor-sharp prior to blending. A zesty, lively, tangy wine is the result, with grapefruit, green apple and hints of passionfruit and guava on the aftertaste."
