Sydney Morning Herald's esteemed wine critic Huon Hooke selected the 2009 Primo & Co The Venetian as 'Best Import' in a recent column. Huon writes 'It has some smoky, struck-flint aromas that add interest while the taste is light, delicate and refined. Just 12 per cent alcohol, Drink young paired with stuffed zucchini flowers. 89/100'

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar has awarded the 2008 JOSEPH Moda 91 points. The esteemed US critic wrote: 'Inky ruby. Deeply scented aromas of blackberry, blueberry and vanilla with a subtle smoky quality and a hint of incense. Deep, chewy cherry-vanilla and dark berry preserve flavours are firmed by slow-building tannins and enlivened by gentle acidity. Open-knit, round and quite sweet, finishing with excellent breadth and sappy persistence. This calls for a piece of strongly flavoured red meat.'
