2001 William Randell Shiraz 92++ points. Intense, moody, rich, opulent and slick, with a silky smooth middle that gradually fails to a curtain of velvet tannin.

2002 Shotfire Ridge Quartage – Top Aussie Red; The four Bordeaux grapes give a complex, flavoursome yet refined palate, with great elegance and fine grained tannins. Good Cabernet varietal character.

Campbell Mattinson
Winefront Monthly October, 2003
2002 Sandpiper Cabernet Sauvignon – Leafy, almost elegant wine with dusty blackcurrant in excellent proportion – no wonder so many people are going ape over this new range. Its got good, juicy, sandy, ash-flavoured length and it satisfies entirely. Drink: Now – 2006.

2003 Sandpiper Eden Valley Pinot Gris – This is a cracker: all scrumptious pears and peaches over dry mineral undertones.
