We are delighted with our recent awards from the 2024 Halliday Wine Companion. We have received 4 Stars in the latest awards.
This included the following:
2016 Slow Wine Co Pinot Noir:
93 POINTS: “A stellar vintage in Orange is reflected in this charming aged release pinot noir. Pomegranate molasses, red cherry cordial, raspberry leaf and wet tobacco. Blackcurrant, clove and tonka bean follow with hints of rosemary stem and creeping ivy vine. Peppered salami and cinnamon spice come through with sappy and juicy fruit quality and pillowy tannins. Drinking very well and will continue to cellar.”
2021 Slow Wine Co Pinot Noir:
92 POINTS: “From Bantry Grove vineyard, which sits at 960m elevation. Destemmed into French oak (10% new). In a world where society is always in a hurry, Slow Wine Co’s considered approach to maturation and evolution has to be commended. Pomegranate juice, rhubarb and black cherry skin. There is a rousing melange of dried herbs in this wine. Ripped thyme, marjoram and crushed rosemary with wet coffee grounds and cured meat notes. A wine of equal savoury elements and sappy red and black fruit.”
2018 Slow Wine Co Merlot:
92 POINTS: “Blood plums, blackberry and stewed mulberries with mocha, tobacco and chai spices. Earthy tones of potting soil and wood ear mushroom come through and tannins are pillowy but ever-present. In fact, the structure of this wine is where the beauty lies. A touch of amaro bitterness on the finish. A steal at the price.”
