Vintage Chart

The Vintage Chart reflects the winemaking team’s preference for drinking aged wine based on their experience and knowledge of the vintages in the bottle. That being said it is still a subjective rather than objective view based upon individual palate preference and is a guide only - your own preferences for how a wine is currently drinking may not necassarily match the views of our winemaking team. 

The values ascribed to each of the wines and vintages listed has been based upon results on the Australian Wine Auction market along with our considered opinion as to the rarity of each release and its "worth" in respect to the rating of particular vintages and its current level of development and "drinkability".

Those wines and vintages where a value is not listed would be considered to be past their best drinking and of "curiosity value" only - although you can be (and we often are!) very pleasantly surprised by the condition of some wines considered "well past it".
