A collection of recent awards, reviews and ratings for our wines:
97 points - James Halliday Wine Companion 2018
"From the Barreca family vineyard that Michael Kelly believes is the best region in WA. The deep purple-crimson hue is an impressive start, and while the initial impression is of a surfeit of new oak, retasting puts the vibrant and intense fruit far in front." - James Halliday
Gold Medal - Scoop Wine Awards
"This is a modern-style chardonnay with a touch of winemaking funk that gives complexity - a touch of char, a struck match character on the nose. There's wonderful concentration of peachy, lemon citrus flavour in the mid-palate and some oaky acidity on the finish, all neatly integrated and balanced. Top gold for chardonnay"
92 Point Rating - The West Australian
"A variety with a real future if grown in the right places. The Kelly vineyard seems to suit things perfectly and this initial release under this label is a first-class example of this variety. Nice light spices and a light bodied, finely balanced palate. It’s a super drink with pickled vegies or seafood such as whitebait and baby squid." - Ray Jordan, The West Australian
