These are a few excerpts…

Among the four wines reviewed was the Highbank Coonawarra Family Reserve Single Vineyard 2013 – described as a dutifully forward vintage by Mr Goodwin, with the scented 13 supine and gorgeous drinking in its youth, bristling with currant, mint, black olive, mulch, cigar box and plum.

“The wine is strung across a timbre of herbal inflected tannins, well-appointed oak and juicy acidity, suggesting that it will carry well into old age,” Mr Goodwin said.

The wine receive a score of 96/100

Mr Goodwin praised the Highbank Coonawarra Single Vineyard 2014 saying the wine offered “a little more jam in the cabernet pastry” with the addition of the merlot.

“This opens beautifully, with currant and mottled leafiness blossoming to a pure line of cassis within a day of opening.”

This wine scored 94/100.
