MadFish Rosť 2008
90 points - "A blend of Southwest WA Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc here, it's a lively vibrant red in the glass. The strawberry and cherry fruits are a compelling double act, gently balanced in an easy-drinking fruity style."
Nick Stock, WBM 100 (Aus), April 2009

Redbank Moscato makes the top 21 in Halliday's Choice
"Halliday's 21 wines that drive the checkout counter.
Very cunningly made from King Valley pinot gris and "muscat rouge" (presumably red frontignac); very fruity yet zesty and well balanced; possibly goes over the top for many of its consumers. Crown seal. 8.5% alc." 88 Points. Drink : Now."
James Halliday, The Weekend Australian Magazine, 18-19 April 2009
Seppeltsfield Grand Muscat NV
"That Seppeltsfield can sell a bottle of Grand Muscat, aged for between ten and fifteen years, for this price is remarkable. How much flavour they can cram into it is quite incredible. Roasted coffee beans, Black Forest gateau and port-soaked figs - you name it, this wine has got it going on."

Pol Roger Pure NV, in the Summer edition of 'Uncorked and Uncapped' by Sally Gudgeon and Ralph Kyte-Powell. FIVE STARS!
BEST CHAMPAGNE - "The understated silver-and-white label marks a new Pol Roger. Following the trend for totally dry champagne, it has subtle apple and citrus fruit woven through biscuity, vanillin complexity. The savoury, clean palate has superb texture and length." Rating: 5 stars. Food: Oysters. Ageing: drink now.
