The table wines did particularly well again this year too ...

Sparkling Shiraz                                                          93 points              GOLD
Marsanne Viognier 2016 Limited Release               91 points              SILVER
Roussanne 2016 Limited Release                              92 points              SILVER

The 2014 vintages of Bobbie Burns Shiraz, Barkly Durif and Brothers Shiraz were not sent in for review in the 2018 Wine Companion as we had limited stock of the 2014 Bobbie Burns Shiraz and did not produce a 2014 vintage of the Brothers Shiraz or Barkly Durif. 

The 2013 vintages of the Barkly and Brothers currently available for sale both received 93 points in the 2017 edition and are getting better every day with age!
