95 Points for Erin Eyes 2016 ‘Ballycapple’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Ballycapple_95_PointsThe 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.

Another 5 Red Star Winery Award for Erin Eyes Wines


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.
