Reviews of the 2017 vintage included below:
"96 Points. Vivid, deep crimson-purple; spectacular. Black cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant don't intend to give red, blue or purple fruits permission to speak. Oak and tannins are allowed to suggest support roles, but that's as far as it gets. Yet it's not the winemaker who has shut the door - it's the fruit and the site climate that have become the guardians of the River Styx. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. To 2052. $26. Special Value" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.
"Grampians shiraz, aged in (older) American and French oak. Fair to say that you get more than your money’s worth here. It’s a beautiful, medium-bodied red wine. The flow of it, the feel, the flavour and the nuance. All for $26. Make hay. Sweet, woodsy spices, plums, redcurrant, milk choc and mint. It’s seamless. It’s delicious. 93 Points Tasted: Jun19 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $26 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2019 - 2030+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
After a 10-year search, winemaker Adam Richardson selected the very special terroir of his Hard Hill Road Vineyard site for the production of his Chockstone and Hard Hill Road labels. With its own special microclimate, the Hard Hill Road Vineyard’s cool ripening conditions and naturally low-yielding vines produce wines with layers of intense flavours and a velvety structure. Like many of the best wines in this historic region, A.T. Richardson’s wines are approachable in their youth, and possess the potential to age gracefully.
