Old Winery Shiraz
by James Halliday on
Spicy red fruits, with cranberry and sage; medium bodied, forward, fleshy and accessible, with taut acidity and a very drinkable finish; luncheon wine in every respect.
by Tony Love on
The serious stuff: Using two of its regionally diverse vineyards across the country that go into higher-level wines, this is unashamedly designed as ripe, sweet fruited shiraz with raspberry, cinnamon, and vanillin oak influences. The fun stuff: Soft, lush and easy drinking for red novices without too many complexities to get in the way of a good time.
Old Winery Cabernet Merlot
by Winestate on
Sweet plum cake of a nose and a soft, round blueberry palate. A very nice quaffing wine.
by James Halliday on
As the label indicates, a SA/WA blend for those with the ability to sell wine (particularly at this price) opportunities to buy in bulk abound this has good black and red berry fruit flavours, and enough structure to satisfy.
Old Winery Traminer Riesling
by Drinks Trade Magazine on
Lifted musky, sweet nose with muscat characters. Elegant and bright with balanced acid and sugar. A medium-sweet light style, with honey flavours, floral notes; simple, juicy and easy drinking.
Old Winery Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
by Tyson Stelzer on
East meets west in this Hunter/WA blend, capturing the crunch of granny smith, the zest of lime and lemon and the freshness of cut grass, softened with a subtle touch of fruit sweetness.
by Geraldton Guardian on
The Semillon characteristics dominate this blend sourced from many regions. Zesty, restrained and fresh, with aromas of lemon and grass showing. Flavours of grass and semi-sweet lemon tickle the tongue and are balanced with smack of acidity provided by the Sauvignon Blanc. When it comes to this variety the price is right, and so is the palate. Tyrrell’s has made it for the market, and for everyone that enjoys an SSB with slightly lower alcohol content, it is just the ticket.

Delicate nose with pretty, floral nuances. Lovely fruit expression on the palate, with a big residual sugar finish and firm, crisp acidity to balance.
Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz
by James Halliday on Mon, February 1st 2016
91 Points - Promises throaty flavour and delivers it well. Blackberry, cloves and mint with a slip of well-measured chocolatey/creamy oak. Seals the deal through the finish. Reliably good.

4 1/2 Star - Star, An immediately attractive shiraz with plenty of generous, mid-dark plum fruit highlights given a regional and genre enhancing under layer of what we now see typically as cooler-climate characters — some white pepper rather than darker, exotic Asian spices, a palate neatly balancing cleverly oak-tinted elements, and fresh, dark cherry fruit crunch. It holds itself up with a delicious ripeness and is immensely enjoyable.

Hunter Valley wine legend Bruce Tyrrell reckons his 2013 Rufus Stone Shiraz, which began being shipped out from his winery yesterday, is on par with the peerless 2002 vintage. This Heathcote beauty finds the sweet spot, combining generous dark fruits with savoury elegance. A gold medal winner for sure and worth every cent of its $25 price tag.

91 Points - Mint chocolate, blackberry, some pepper and pretty vanilla oak in the back. It’s big, but soft and juicy with well bedded tannin, balanced acidity and plenty of depth and flavour. Layers of plum and chocolate on the finish, but has fresh berried perkiness too. Smooth. Post purchase, I don’t think anyone will come away feeling disappointed.
by Huon Hook on Fri, June 12th 2015
93 Points - Very deep, dark red/purple colour; rich, ripe black fruit aromas, with subtle deftly handled oak. The wine id full-bodied and ample, with abundant tannin in good balance, the finish long and full, while the flavour is mineral and ‘iron tonic-like’, typical of Heathcote. Long, firm finish, with a minerally quality which lingers and a major final grip.
Vat 47 Hunter Chardonnay
by Gary Walsh on Wed, May 21st 2014
96 Points -Struck match, cashew and almond, lime and peach. Medium bodied, mouth-filling palate, crystal clear limey acidity, power and style, but not heavy. Silky feel. Crisp flinty finish, that’s so pure and long. It’s all here. Best young Vat 47 I can remember.
