TOP 10 BEST NEW WINERIES & 5 STAR RATED 2017 EDITION

2020 EDITION Excellent feedback and scores from Campbell Mattinson in this years Wine Companion. Here’s some of what Campbell had to say..

2018 Rouleur Chardonnay 94 Points “Pitch perfect in all respects. Fruit and oak are balanced on a pinhead; the finish feels assured; it's safely well ripened and it simply tastes good. It gathers pace as it reaches the finish, always a good sign”

2018 Rouleur Pinot Noir 94 Points It takes time to unfurl; it's light in colour but is broody and intense. Macerated cherries, fistfuls of spice, garden herb notes; they're all here. But it remains characterised by its fruit, its tannin, its thousand mile stare. It is but a pup. This is going places”

2019 EDITION A solid set of scores for Rouleur in this years Wine Companion, and receiving 97 points for our 2017 Blewitt Springs Shiraz was a definite highlight

2017 Rouleur McLaren Vale Shiraz 97 points

OZ WINE REVIEW VINTAGE 2018

Click the link above to read the full review, but here’s a snippet of Andrew’s comments on our latest release Shiraz and Pinot Noir

Rouleur 2018 Shiraz Best drinking: Now to ten years plus. 18.5/20, 94/100. 13.4%, $32. Would I buy it? In a second. I’ve told Matt before that his wines are too cheap, and here’s another example”

Rouleur 2018 Pinot Noir Keep an eye out for Matt’s 2018 Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir It’s such an archetypal Mornington Pinot from ‘down the hill’ that manages to deliver that sappy red fruit again with delicacy. Let’s call it 18.5/20, 94/100 too and I’d gladly drink a bottle tonight”

OZ WINE REVIEW VINTAGE 2017

Making the list of ‘TOP 10 MONTHLY WINESwith our ‘17 Yarra Valley Pinot Noir and ‘17 McLaren Vale Shiraz a highlight here. To read what Andrew had to say in full about all our wines, click here

Rouleur 2017 Pinot Noir Best drinking: Now or up to five years time. 18.5/20, 94/100. 12.9%, $28.80 direct in 6 pack. Would I buy it? Mad value at those dollars. I’ve had many a $50 Yarra Pinot that sits behind this wine. Buy.”

Rouleur 2017 Shiraz “Best drinking: Now to fifteen years (but I enjoyed it immediately). 18.5/20, 94/100. 14%, $32. Would I buy it? A steal of a wine.”

OZ WINE REVIEW VINTAGE 2016

Rouleur 2016 Chardonnay “A wonderfully well-made Chardonnay in the restrained style. I liked it even more than last year. Best drinking: 2017-2024. 18/20, 93/100. 12.8%, $32. Would I buy it? Well priced and delicious, it’s a wine I’d buy for sure.”

Rouleur 2016 Grenache “This is great mid-weight wine with energy and structure. Just delicious anytime wine, that should be celebrated for its vibrancy. Best drinking: 2017-2027. 18.5/20, 94/100. 14.4%, $32. Would I buy it? Absolutely.”
