$30

 

“Plum, dried cranberry, and raspberry, baking spices and Ginger Nut biscuits, polished wood, subtle floral and herbal perfume. Medium bodied, with a delightful churn of thick ripe tannin, depth and brightness to the fruit, clean acidity, a pleasing precision married to richness, black olive savouries and exotic spice: the Merlot and Cabernet Franc weave a lovely tapestry here. Finish is long, almost crisp, with a slurry of tannin to bring it home. Top shelf."

“This is a very strong release in both the quality sense, and a physical sense.”

 

 "Plum, chocolate, aniseed, redcurrant, violets, baking spices and menthol – a fair riot of richness and perfume here."

 

"Right proper wine."

2010 Allouran

N/A

“…More elegant and vibrant than previous releases; although it’s never been a clumsy, plodding wine” 95 Jeremy Pringle 02/14

 

“…Indeed, texture becomes the primary pleasure as the wine moves through its extended finish” Julian Coldrey 03/14

 

“…It actually popped out of a blind line-up for its succulence and general drinkability” 94 Mike Bennie 03/14

 

“…I’d agree it’s the best yet. 94 points from MB seems more than fair” Gary Walsh 03/14

 

“…It is a delicious, rare, slender drink.  But is not mellow. Stack some away. This very generous price can't possibly hold. If you insist on buying 2010s, the Allouran is AU$4,300:00 cheaper than Petrus” 94+++ Philip White 04/14

Campbell Mattinson from 'The Wine Front' says...

"This Allouran is a very alluring wine.

You have to go for a bit of acidity, mind. It fairly trills with mouth-watering acid. But such effect entirely suits the wine. It tastes of dusted chocolate and pencils, ripe plums and dried-out hay. Beautiful overall effect. Gorgeous squeeze of tannin through the finish. Length to burn. Walks to the beat of its own drum – successfully."

2007 Allouran

N/A

Gary Walsh from 'The Wine Front' says...

"Rich but controlled with some savoury flavours and a general red fruitedness, firm tannin, freshness and excellent length. Subtle mocha oak on exit. It all flows along merrily merrily - like a dream. Brilliant price for a wine of this quality."

"Clean, fresh and fragrant with raspberry, plum, chocolate, baking spices and a touch of gum leaf and pepper...Something of a triumph considering the vintage too."
