Jeremy Oliver Reviews 2010 Colombard in this Month's Gourmet Traveller
A lively, juicy and punchy young white from a variety that has never really caught the imagination of the public, other than for this label. It’s scented with a floral and gently herbal aroma of melon, citrus and light tropical fruit. Bright and breezy, its concentrated palate of citrus and tropical flavours has a round, unctuous quality that is neatly wound up by a trim, tart acidity. It finishes with a lasting impression of freshness and brightness.

Renowned wine critic Philip White has reviewed the JOSEPH Sparkling Red on his Drinkster Blog.
Easily the pinnacle of Australian sparkling red, this astonishing wine holds select bits and pieces from over forty vintages, and only Bacchus knows eactly which varieties. Joe Grilli basically watched Robert O'Callaghan pinch the old recipe he learned from Colin Preece at Great Western, and with his typical gastronomic passion and rare intellectual rigour, outdid them both with finesse, complexity and consistency. While the legendary Rockford Black suffers fits of terrible cork, brettanomycaes, staleness and whatnot, the JOSPEH Red simply offers deadly velvety luxury and consistency the like of which you'd otherwise only expect in something like Krug. Like that mighty Champenoise wonder of the blending bench and reserve cellar, this wine manages to contain all that ancient base material, and yet pour in the most disarmingly fresh, matter-of-fact manner. One can glower over it, pondering, or simply sock it away with the sort of beetroot grin you'd earn at the most carnal bacchanale.

Stewart Noble has picked the 2008 JOSEPH Nebbiolo as his wine of the week...
Light cherry red in colour this wine has a really unique and pleasant aroma that includes savoury, floral and faint fruit elements. Those faint fruit elements in the aroma actually become more noticeable in this wine’s flavour profile but it is still well balanced with savoury and spicy elements. Silky smooth with enjoyable and unique aromas and flavours I found this wine rather delicious and definitely something I would have again.

90 Points. Focused, lithe and appealing for its balance and subtle range of flavors, offering savory elements along with notes of fresh currant and spice. Finishes gracefully. Drink now through 2015.—H.S.
