2018 is Steve’s 21st vintage in the Clare Valley and with his wealth of experience you will not be disappointed in these fine wines.
His Rieslings have won many awards over the last few years – read more here.
The 2019 James Halliday Wine Companion had reviewed Steve Wiblin’s Erin Eyes 2016 ‘Ballycapple’ Cabernet Sauvignon and awarded it with Gold at 95 Points.
Here is what the review says:
35yo vines, matured for 20 months in French oak. Excellent deep crimson-purple hue; the bouquet suggests what the palate confirms. This is the best Steve Wiblin Cabernet Sauvignon made to date in a region that does little more than tolerate cabernet. It is rich in blackcurrant/cassis, with tannins assisting rather than quarrelling with the fruit, oak a finishing touch.
For the third year in a row the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion has awarded Erin Eyes Wines the 5 Red Star Winery award.
This is what the Halliday Wine Companion says about the 5 Red Star Rating:
Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity. Will have at least two wines rated at 95 points or above, and had a five-star rating for the previous two years.
Where the winery name is itself is printed in red, it is a winery generally acknowledged to have had a long track record of excellence in the context of its region — truly the best of the best.
The Real Review has awarded Erin Eyes Wine a Certificate of Excellence which is awarded to a select group of wineries that consistently produce excellent wine.
Ready to drink and now released.
The Wine Showcase Magazine has awarded this wine a Gold Medal with 94 points.
