Read through Executive Editor Nick Stock's scores of our wines and tasting notes below...

Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Wilyabrup Estate 2016
Score: 93 Points
17 Mar, 2020 – There’s an air of cedary oak and an almost tarry edge to the red berries and blueberries with sage, gun smoke and bay leaf, too. The palate has a very succulent feel with impressively juicy, spicy berries, wrapped in sturdy, smooth-honed and fresh tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Clairault Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Estate 2017
Score: 92 Points
20 Mar, 2020 – Some toasty and flinty complexity here with a grilled-peach and lemon nose, leading to a palate that has a wealth of savory, peach-kernel and spiced-almond flavors. Drink now. Screw cap.

Clairault Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River 2019
Score: 92 Points
18 Mar, 2020 – Super pure, upbeat and fresh aromas of peaches, lemons and mangoes lead to a palate that has such juicy, vibrant and smooth-honed style. Delicious peaches and lemons and some pears to close. Drink now. Screw cap.

Clairault Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2017
Score: 92 Points
17 Mar, 2020 – This has aromas of brambly ripe dark berries and plums that intersect with cedar, leaves and cocoa powder. The palate has such smooth, fluid tannins and delivers ripe dark-berry flavors in abundance. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Streicker Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Ironstone Block Old Vine 2014
Score: 92 Points
17 Mar, 2020 – This slightly older cabernet has developed such attractive earthy and leafy aromas, across the blueberries and blackcurrants. Plenty of herbal kick and tobacco, too. The palate is delivered in such smooth layers of flavor-soaked tannin. Blueberry and plum flavors abound here. So long and fluid. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 

Streicker Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River Bridgeland Block Fumé Blanc 2018
Score: 92 Points
18 Mar, 2020 – This has very attractively fresh aromas of guava and spiced lime curd, as well as lemon butter. The palate has freshness with a gently creamy, plush textural build. Spicy finish. Drink in the next four years. Screw cap.

Streicker Pinot Noir Margaret River Bridgeland Block 2018
Score: 91 Points
16 Mar, 2020 – Attractive red berries and a gently leafy, sappy and herbal edge make for appealing pinot. The palate has fine-grained tannins and a fresh red-berry core with bright, crunchy acidity delivering a lively finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

Streicker Chardonnay Margaret River Ironstone Block Old Vine 2017
Score: 91 Points
20 Mar, 2020 – This has a vibrant, fresh and upbeat stone-fruit nose with plenty of fleshy, lightly tangy peaches on the palate. Drink now. Screw cap.

Halley & Lex Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2017
Score: 91 Points
17 Mar, 2020 – Attractive violets and fresh purple berries abound here with a very juicy array of fine, sweetly ripe tannin, delivering rich, mulberry and blackcurrant flavors in approachable mode. Drink now. Screw cap.

Streicker Syrah Margaret River Bridgeland Block 2014
Score: 90 Points
20 Mar, 2020 – This shows some savory development with dark, toasted spices, bacon fat and dried red plums. Some earthy notes, too. The palate has a spice, mocha and meat thread with plenty of ripe dark berries. Sleek tannins. Still fresh at the finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Streicker Chenin Blanc Margaret River Ironstone Block 2017
Score: 90 Points
19 Mar, 2020 – An attractive, lemon-centered style with a little toasty edge adding interest, as well as some flinty notes. The palate has a fine, juicy and elegant feel with smooth, supple, fleshy build. Drink now. Screw cap.

Clairault Chardonnay Margaret River 2018
Score: 89 Points
20 Mar, 2020 – The bright, fresh melon and peaches here are appealing with a smooth and easygoing, fresh-peach palate. Drink now. Screw cap.
