The 2021 James Halliday companion was released in August and we were absolutely thrilled to retain our 5 red star rating.
Out of over 2800 Wineries and Vineyards that belong to the Halliday Wine Companion only 273 red stars have been awarded this year. We are delighted to sit with amazing company.
This year we submitted many of our 2018 vintages and they proved to be just as impressive to Halliday as we thought. Shiraz was the star variety for us with all our labels receiving high scores. The highest been 96 points for our 2018 MLRV Shiraz followed by 95 points each for the 2018 Aspire and 2018 S&G.
Sitting also on 95 points we had the 2018 S&G Chardonnay with 94 points for both the 2018 Old Apple Block Chardonnay and the 2018 S&G Pinot Noir.
This gives us a fantastic 6 wines at and above the highly coveted 94 point mark.
This was followed in the next bracket by the 2019 Home Block Riesling, 2018 Aspire Chardonnay and 2018 Aspire Pinot Noir all receiving between 90 and 93 points.
Here at Mt Lofty Ranges Vineyard we continue to produce high quality and highly rated Adelaide Hills wine in our very special pocket of the world, right here in Lenswood.
Come for a visit when you can.
