Tyson Stelzer’s Australian & New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017
All the character of this high, cool, tough site is encapsulated in the 25th anniversary edition of Gaia. You can feel the struggling vines in tiny berry cassis concentration, the grip of cold nights in fragrant violet perfume and the rocky geology in fine mineral texture. It is the vinous signature of a remarkable and dramatic place, and it signs off with tangy lightness, effortless coherence and grand endurance. 97 Points.
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, 24 February 2017
Gaia is such a statuesque wine. It has cellarworthiness inked across its arms and chest. It presents dense blackcurrant, gum leaf, dark tobacco and cedar spice and although it’s mighty with both flavour and tannin it manages to still feel restrained. It’s a neat wine, an athlete in a suit. Screwcap-sealed, alive with aroma, gloriously cabernet-esque, dense, balanced, tannic and lengthy; what more do you want in a wine destined for the cellar? 95 Points.
