POST-PICNIC WIND UP – OCTOBER 2013

It was a real pleasure to kick off the beginning of the season, and commemorate the wonderful vintage that has been, with some special folk at the annual VP Sheep on the Spit. We are pleased to report that the weather (or wine) gods looked kindly upon the picnickers, despite the threatening forecast, and that one Imperial bottle of 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon was just not enough for this particular celebration. It has been 15 years since the first vines at Victory Point were planted, and 10 years since the first commercial vintage.

Most importantly, the event marked the official release of the 2010 VP Chardonnay. Once again, we are exceptionally proud of the quality of this release, which has enjoyed great success to date. The wine received 96 points from James Halliday and, we were glad to note, the praises of those present at its release.Many thanks to everyone who made it to Victory Point for the occasion. We hope you enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did. A special mention must go to the lads manning the spit, the expert carving team (the Lawyer, the Vet, the Chef & the Farmer!!) and, once again, Dick ‘top-up’ Taylor. The VP journey has been made possible by the support of so many wonderful friends. We hope that you will continue to celebrate that journey with us in years to follow.

This is the fourth vintage of Chardonnay to receive 96 points from the Halliday team and this wine has also been recognised on the International stage being rated “Highly Recommended” by Decanter magazine , in their tasting of over 50 Western Australian chardonnays.

The supplies were drained over the picnic afternoon, so get your orders in from our new web site order form.

As the shadows lengthened, the coats were brought out and the stayers settled around the embers of the spit...

 

JAMES HALLIDAY REVIEWS

2008 CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Turning to another recent milestone, the VP 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has been reevaluated as a 94 point wine.

James Halliday gave the following review for the VP 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon:

A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon, 10% malbec and 4% petit verdot; open-fermented, basket-pressed and matured in French oak (35% new) for 18 months. It still retains excellent colour, and a complex, medium- to full-bodied palate with good balance and length to its blackcurrant and mulberry fruit, the tannins ripe and soft. 94 points; drink to 2023.

This wine is excellent to drink now and, as all of our wines, will cellar well.
