RALPH KYTE-POWELL

The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2007

You donít see Berrys Bridge wines everywhere, but make sure to try them when you can. They are good examples of the intense Pyrenees regional-style red wine.

 

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon

Rating 93

A dense young wine with a penetrating nose of black fruit, seasoning spices, meaty notes, mint & aromatic oak. In the mouth it has concentrated cabernet fruit of depth & persistence. Firm tannins back things up well. A solid cabernet that will undoubtedly benefit from long ageing.
   
2002 Shiraz

Rating 94

A dense, deep shiraz with powerful aromas of boiled-down plums, spices and cedar. And while it doesnít have the excessive eucalypt of some big Pyrenees reds, thereís a whisper of the gum tree about it. Overall the nose is like a plush essence of super-ripe shiraz. The palate is full-bodied and strongly flavoured with warmth & generosity; a great wall of tannins supports the whole.
   
2002 Merlot

Rating 91

An intense varietal nose suggests plums, spices, mushrooms & undergrowth, with a hint of cedary oak in the background. The palate isnít as big and concentrated as the other Berrys Bridge wines but it has good intensity, with medium body & fine-grained, sinewy tannins in support.
