2017 Irvine Spring Hill Rose – The Irvine Spring Hill Rose 2017 was delicate, subtle, clean and refreshing with a good flavour profile (National Liquor News – August 2017 – Rose Review)

2017 Irvine Spring Hill Rose – 90 Points – Good concentration of flavour & great length. Freshness helps make this lively (AG) & Roses, savoury orange rind aromas. Good fruit up front, with some character. (MQ) (National Liquor News – August 2017 Rose Tasting Panel)

Irvine Spring Hill Primitive Rose 2017 From Eden Valley, South Australia, this rose has a distinct and pretty perfume of sweet strawberries with a faint dusting of petter spice. The palate is almost dry, showing just a lick of red berry fruitiness. It’s thirst-slaking stuff. (Sunday Stellar Magazine – September 2017)

2017 Spring Hill Primitivo Rose 2017 – Eden Valley. Gorgeous and every-so-pale. The aroma is deliciously savoury and lemony. Textured and full on the palate with appealing breadth and depth. Lemons and melons. Quiet and delicious. Take care not to over-chill. Drink as young as possible. 90 **** (The Real Review, Toni Paterson, 14 October 2017).

Irvine, The Estate Merlot 2015 Eden Valley. Some of the oldest Merlot in Australia, planted 1983. Mid garnet. A little minty, lots of spice, chewy, juicy and dense but not heavy. Full and peppery in the mouth. A big wine but the tannins keep it in shape. (Jancisrobinson.com, 23rd November, 2017).

Irvine Spring Hill 2017 Rose – Barely pink, and glossy good looks from the unusual primitive variety, pithy, refreshing. (Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser, 1st December 2017)

Irvine Spring Hill 2017 Rose – 4 stars – This rose if from an unusual varietal source in the primitive grape, aka zinfandel, which you’d have to say is more known for its fully flavoured big red expressions. So, to get this so zingy, the Irvine team has really pushed the envelope to pick fruit very early in order to temper the colour and the variety’s wilder red flavours. It’s a complete success with pithy, refreshing palate tendrils to finish. (Tony Love, Herald Sun, 28th November)

Irvine 2015 The Estate Merlot Eden Valley **** - The Irvine label is synonymous with merlot, this some of the last overseen by founder Jim Irvine before he sold the brand, where winemaker Rebekah Richardson now steers the business. This is familiarly opulent in the old style, with concentrated spiced blackberry fruit bursting at the seams, the mouthfeel and tannins wrapping up the palate yet still encouraging the big flavours to flow. Let it mellow for a few years, or at least give it some air now.

2017 Irvine Spring Hill Riesling - Irvine Wines now have over 400 acres of vineyard in the Barossa and Eden valleys. The wines are now made by Rebekah Richardson. This is aromatic and inviting. It’s made to draw you in. Apple and honeysuckle, some brine-like notes, a flash of talc. It’s dry, it hints at generosity, it’s even – unusual for a young Aussie riesling – characterful. It’s good drinking. (The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson, August 17)
