Jasper Hill

  • 2012 Jasper Hill Riesling Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    Floral and lime notes on the nose. Cleansing acidity on the palate, finishing nicely crisp. Very good length. Extremely young obviously, but very good and has plenty of potential. 90/100

  • 2002 Jasper Hill Riesling Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    Lots of kerosene on the nose, with some toast and honey. Palate is developed and has nice length. Drink now. 89/100

  • 2011 Jasper Hill Shiraz The Sisters – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    A blend of Shiraz with 80% from Georgia’s Paddock and 20% from Emily’s Paddock. Cocoa and blueberry aromas, with a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium bodied and pleasant without much complexity. Nicely easy to drink and may develop over the medium term but is approachable now. 88/100

  • 2002 Jasper Hill Shiraz Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    Vanilla, some smoked meat, mocha and plum aromas. There is great density on the palate supported by some impressive tannin structure and lifted by a gentle minerality element. Excellent carry through to the finish. Should happily continue to develop over the next 10-15 years. 92/100

  • 2003 Jasper Hill Shiraz Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    Tobacco aromas with some cherry, smoke and leather. The palate is quite youthful, there is some plush and sweet red fruit. Doesn’t feel as structured as the 2002 currently is, but it is more appealing for drinking right now. 91/100

  • 2006 Jasper Hill Shiraz Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    Plum, liquorice, chocolate and some light vanilla oak on the nose. The palate is densely fruited but it has the structure from tannins and supporting oak to balance it out. Need some more time to come together and soften a bit, another 5-6 years perhaps. 90/100

  • 2009 Jasper Hill Shiraz Georgia’s Paddock – Australia, Victoria, Central Victoria, Heathcote
    A dense and complex nose of blackberry, earth, liquorice as well as kirsch, violets and some pepper. The palate is brooding, rich, detailed and intense – it is given a lift by bright acid and kept from being over the top by the structure. This needs some serious time in bottle to be its best, 7-8 years at least. 92/100
