Reviews

    2013 Beresford Limited Release Shiraz

  • “Deep, inky crimson-purple; a dense, rich and powerful full-bodied shiraz, black fruits, licorice and chocolate needing to lose some puppy fat and focus on the job at hand. Lots of potential here, but needs time to grow up. Cellar to 2035.”2016 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion

Reviews

    2015 Beresford Estate Blewitt Springs Grenache

  • “This balances riper sweet flavours of cherries in kirsch with brighter squishy raspberries, some jubey confection but that's offset by florals and spice. Feels voluminous at first yet contained by lemony acidity and ripe sandy tannins. Cellar to 2023.”2018 James Halliday Wine Companion

    2013 Beresford Estate Blewitt Springs Cabernet Sauvignon

  • “Matured for 14-16 months in new and used French and American oak. Deeply coloured, this is a lusciously hedonistic wine with that X-factor Blewitt Springs (with its cooler climate) unfailingly delivers given responsible viticulture. This wine grows each time it is retasted. Cellar to 2038.”2016 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion

    2013 Beresford Estate Blewitt Springs Shiraz

  • “Matured for 14-16 months in new and used French and American oak. Deep, bright crimson; this has a lot going for it, the bouquet good, the medium-bodied palate better still; it is supple and very well balanced, with perfectly ripened blackberry fruit and supporting tannins. Cellar to 2033”2016 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion

Reviews

    2013 Sparkling McLaren Vale Shiraz

  • "McLaren Vale shiraz of stature and depth yet crunch and brightness makes for a sparkling shiraz of character and appeal. Dark berry fruits meld seamlessly with dark chocolate (thanks for 16 months maturation in seasoned French oak barrels). A full dosage of 32g/l counters tannin grip and renders the finish sweet."James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

    2015 Beresford Classic McLaren Vale GSM

  • “A big generous wine with wonderful Rhone-like characters evident. Powerful red berry bouquet. A great palate that is rich and softly textured with strong drying tannins.”Winestate Magazine, Nov/Dec 2016
  • "70/20/10% with Grenache off the estate's 50yo bush vines. It's come together nicely, all sweet, savoury and pleasing with sweet raspberry, cherry and plum fruits, florals and spice. Medium-bodied, with fine sandpaper tannins, fresh acidity turning this into a drink anytime, anywhere wine. Cellar to 2024."James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

    2015 Beresford Classic McLaren Vale Shiraz

  • “The savoury drive and buoyancy of the Classic really appeals. That's not to say it doesn't have dark plums, blackberries and currants, chocolate, soy sauce and spice plus richness and sweetness of the tannins, because those elements are all here. Packaged well and ready now. Cellar to 2027.”James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

    2015 Beresford Classic McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon

  • “Lovely aromas sitting in the plum fruit spectrum and oodles of flavour with the sweet oak poking through the varietal fruit.”Winestate July/August 2017
