The reviews and ratings:
Toolangi Estate Chardonnay 2013
Estate-grown, made at Oakridge Estate, and matured in French oak for 11 months; fine and elegant, the wine has the length and finesse that comes in large measure from the vineyard, but also has the unmistakable thumbprint of David Bicknell in the guise of the complex bouquet. Drink to 2028. Rating 96
Toolangi Pauls Lane Pinot Noir 2013
Estate-grown, hand-picked, and made at Hoddles Creek Estate; matured in French oak barriques for 10 months. Exemplary colour; the fragrant, lightly-spiced bouquet leads into a palate that has what the French call nervosity, an almost three dimensional combination of tactile and flavour characters that are woven together to provide exceptional energy and length. Drink to 2028. Rating 97
Toolangi Pauls Lane Shiraz 2013
Estate-grown; made at Coldstream Hills and at Hoddles Creek Estate where it was blended and bottled after 18 months maturation in French oak; the colour is deep and clear, the palate with considerable presence and complexity, its savoury assemblage of red and black cherry fruits and supporting tannins providing a mouth-watering finish and aftertaste. Will be very long-lived. Drink to 2038. Rating 95
