View member price

The Mountain Range wines pay homage to O'Shea's talent as a master blender. He had an astounding ability to make and recognise small unique parcels. And depending on what style they were, light bodied, medium bodied or full-bodied, O'Shea gave each of them different code names: Mountain C, Mountain A and Mountain D.

96 Points - Gary Walsh

The Wine Front

"Blueberry and boysenberry, juicy and full of flavour, grippy in a good way, slight hit of cedar oak, liquorice richness and succulence on a long finish. Aniseed and creamed honey in the aftertaste. Plenty of stuffing, and at the very start of a long life."

 95 Points - Huon Hooke

The Real Review

"The bouquet is sotto voce, earthy and subdued, with predominant earth-bound aromas, suggesting it needs more time to evolve its bouquet. A hint of iodine. The wine is soft and fleshy in the mouth, round and even and supple, and finishes with nicely textured, slightly chewy tannins. Medium to full body. Very good; needs more time."

 96 Points - Campbell Mattinson

2021 Halliday Wine Companion

"It couldn't be any more Hunter if it tried. It sits just on the bolder side of medium weight, it's underpinned by earth and dry spice, it's essentially red-berried, but there are suede, saltbush and roasted nuts character rippling through. There's a dusting of musk stick too. You'd bet on this having a long, beautiful future."
