"Full crimson-purple; the expressive buoquet spans black fruits, spicy florals and a backdrop of bitter chocolate, the palate with a bottomless well of potent black fruits and licorice. Despite this oppulent array, it remains medium bodied and light on its feet thanks to careful tannin extract and controlled french oak'. James Halliday, The Australian wine Companion 2017.

" .... The palate is deep in lovely lush, sweet cassis fruit flavour- a delicious wine. The tannins are ample but soft and fine, without any hint of aggression. Au contrarie: it's silky. A drop dead gorgeous wine of beautiful flavours and aromas, and the structure is exemplary"

' Further evidence of the supreme quality of Great Southern riesling is not really needed, but this glorious wine supplies it nonetheless. The combination of purity and intensity, of lime juice, lime leaf and sparkling, crystalline acidity says it all, the length prodigious." 96 points. drink by 2029

15/10/2013

Some very fine pinots have emerged in recent years from this Western Australian region, and Castle Rock Estatewinemaker Rob Diletti- who made this one-is a key player. This pinot has a lot going for it, including the price. It hasa medium-full red-purple hue and a voluminous bouquetthat suggests spices and dark cherries. It’s light to medium bodied, with richness and nicely balanced fruit sweetness, the finish soft and fleshy. There’s a lot of character andcharm packed into a relatively inexpensive bottle. Best drinking from now to 2020.

The Great Southern Wine Region of WA is becoming synonymous with cool climate Riesling production.

Ray Jordan described the 3drops Riesling 2012 'as another excellent Riesling from one of the state's best in this variety.

'Spicy and minerally on the nose, with a little squeeze of lime. The palate is typically soft and delicate but with an impressive length and drive. Fine, crunchy acid brings it to life. 93/100. Ray Jordan, The West Australian Magazine. 17th November 2012

"A fine example of a cool climate Shiraz with the benefit of the old Patterson fruit. Has a mix od spices and violets on the nose, with a faint touch of redcurrant. The palate is elegant and precise, with fine, silky tannins and a subtle touch of understated oak. A lighter - bodied wine with plenty of palate intensity. 92/100".
