"Wonderful wine" - Huon Hooke
Wine Front 94 Points!
"Peters-Oswald served his new dabble: the 2016 Basket Case. This is a lush, decadent wine made with 100% whole-bunch ferment (but not tasting or smelling unbalanced in that respect), hand-sorted and fermented in two 500-litre puncheons with the heads taken out of them, foot-crushed and hand and foot plunged daily at the peak of ferment. Then gently basket-pressed. It’s a wonderful wine, but alas only 498 bottles were made. The good news is that he’s made another one in 2017."
Huon Hooke, The Real Review
"Wild, lifted, spicy, mulchy, cloudy thing. A lot of spice and greenery, strawberry, graphite tannin, and I’m guessing a fair bit of whole bunch carry on, has intensity of fruit and fragrance too. Power through the finish. Of a particular style, but really pretty good."
