  1. A deep purple color with a supple nose of plum, chocolate,small berries and white pepper. The palate has nice weight and mouthfeel with blackfruit and herbal nuances, finishing savoury with overly sharp acidity. (87 Points)
  2. A deep purple color with meaty/herbal aromas leads into a medium weighted palate with very pleasant fruit and drying, nicely integrated tannins, finishing long and dry with plum, liquorice and rasberry lingering for a good amount of time. A very good food wine. (89 Points)
  3. A pale, greeny straw color with sharp aromas of apple/grapefruit and a hint of apricot precede a tight, crispy palate of green apples and slightly hard minerality. Dry and nicely persistent finish. (87 Points)
  4. Always a little pearler on a hot night, this sparkling wine matures fantastically. Personally, I don't like to drink it too cold as the flavours are muted but open up as the wines temperature starts to climb. At the moment the 1996 is starting to lighten up around the rim a bit, the nose is full of jammy cherry and a hint of plum which follows through on the palate with some nice fresh acidity, fruit tanins and good length.

  5. A dense purple color with a clean, vibrant nose of small blackfruits, plum and a hint of chocolate. The palate has nice medium weight with intense fruit, drying tannins and a pleasantly lengthy finish. (90 Points)
  6. Diggers Bluff is a small winery run by Robert O'Callaghans (Rockford) two sons Travis and Tim. A bright red color with a lightly perfumed nose of rasberry and sour cherry. Light to medium weight with dusty, slightly chalky tannins, crisp acidity and finishing with hints of rasberry, clove and a touch of menthol. A pleasant, easy drinking wine. (87 Points)
  7. The nose is dominated by rich, dark mocha and a dusty perfume of intense plum and rasberry aromas. The palate is long and elegant with blueberry, coffee and aniseed the predominant flavours and a hint of dried fruit on the finish. The entire package is framed by chewy tannins and tightly knit chocolate/vanilla oak. (95 Points)

    In Australia, Penfolds now etch each bottle they produce with the name of the wine and its vintage.

    I've listened to Grape Radio a few times but must confess that I prefer music
  10. A superbly rich nose of small black fruits and fine chocolate. A concentrated palate of dark plums, liquorice, cracked pepper and mulberry, filling the mouth with a core of chalky tannins and an ever so long finish. We had this alongside a 1993 which seemed to have changed ever so slightly. The 1993 was more finely integrated but still very powerful and youthful, with a large liquorice component and a big stiff backbone of fruit tannins. Top marks for consistency. (94 Points)
