PARKER REVIEW
23rd August 2003

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were bottled in September 2003. The following review of our 2002 barrel samples (from July 2003) appeared in the latest issue of the Robert Parker's "Wine Advocate" (Issue 148 dated 23rd August 2003).

Berrys Bridge 2002 Shiraz (90-93)
Berrys Bridge 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (81-91)

"Barrel samples from fully blended wines, both of these offerings are scheduled to be bottled in October. Both taste extremely primary, but it is hard to ignore the extraordinary quality as well as purity of their fruit. The earthy 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits sweet blueberry and cassis fruit, wonderful lushness, medium to full body, plenty of glycerin, and a clean, nicely-textured, lovely finish. It should drink well for 10-12 years.

 Even better is the 2002 Shiraz, a hugely flavourful effort filled with copious quantities of blue and blackberries intermixed with a liquid minerality. Medium to full-bodied and elegant as well as intensely flavourful and impressively textured, it should also drink well for 10-12 years."
