Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend from the Golden Mile bench. Aromas of currant, plum, and blackberries, along with hints of dried herbs, mint, sweet tobacco and soft oak. Full bodied on the palate with soft, smooth tannins, and bright acidity. Fruit flavours are ripe and rounded, complimented with hints of oak, spice and oak. Lovely and very well balanced, this is wonderful now to enjoy with a steak, but will continue to age and enjoy for the next 7-10 years.
A wine built to age, Garland is a Cabernet Sauvignon driven Bordeaux style blend that celebrates Hester Creek’s historic vineyard, first planted in 1968. A true expression of Golden Mile Bench fruit, this vintage is made with grapes from our older vines and is over 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It shows dark fruits such as currants, plum, and cassis, with incredible structure and intensity.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
