Our Review

While the vaunted history of craftsmanship here is indisputable, the reds have ebbed from the reductive tension championed by former chief winemaker Jim Chatto, to a more relaxed expression under new maker Adrian Sparks. Sparks seems to have a predilection for mid-weighted, lower-alcohol styles of red, not dissimilar to the great Hunter River Burgundies crafted by Maurice O’Shea. This is a style that is as aspirational today as it was revered then, gleaned from a polyglot of historical vineyards, variable geologies and stylistic patinas, including expressions of the Old Paddock and Rosehill vineyards. The whites, too, feel less austere. However, their fealty to the regional pedigree of steely, long-lived semillon is clear. -NED GOODWIN MW
