James Halliday 99
Vines planted '72, scrupulously hand-picked selecting only the best, 100% whole-bunch fermented in two new French puncheons, 60 days on skins, matured for 10 months. Guigal comes to the Yarra Valley. Intensely aromatic and equally intensely flavoured oak and fruit, fruit and oak. It's like a frog transfixed by a snake - you just want to drink it - forget deconstruction.
