James Halliday's 12 wines of Christmas

Pitchfork Cabernet Merlot 2009 has today been chosen by James Halliday as one of his top 12 wines for Christmas:

“Pitchfork is Hay Shed Hill's second label, but the skill of Michael Kerrigan means you don't realise that if you simply taste the wine without investigating its antecedents. The fragrant red fruit bouquet has herbaceous rolled-leaf and cedar notes, the palate is lively and accessible, with plenty of stuffing providing a classic Margaret River ride. This is outstanding value for such quality, its controlled alcohol giving you the best of both worlds for consumption now or later - say 7 years.”

Rating 94 points. James Halliday
