Haskell in for a big score


On the back of last week’s news about the terrific John Platter ratings, Haskell is pleased to bring you some more good news following the release of the latest edition of Wine Advocate, the publication of industry titan, Robert Parker Jr.

Wine Advocate reviewer, Neal Martin, described South Africa as “the most dynamic and exciting New World country at the moment”; in particular emphasizing that “…top end there are genuine world-class wines, not by dint of expensive oak or because Angela in the marketing department said so, but because of genuine reasons such as terroir, vine age, talented winemakers and skillful winemaking.”

They are words to warm the hearts of wine loving South Africans. Martin, and The Wine Advocate, are important figures in the world of wine, and their praise is turning the rumble about South African wine into a quiet roar.

The Wine Advocate rates wines based on a 100 point scale.  Of the range of impressive reviews, those of the Haskell II 2010 and Haskell Anvil Chardonnay 2012 stood out.

Haskell Anvil
2012

Aromas of white peach and citrus, with floral, flint and hazelnut influences. Palate is framed by youthful acidity, with harmonious fruit and oak balance. Finishes with subtle toasted almond and baked bread after flavours.

Haskell II
2010

Black red colour with purple rim. The nose shows flavours of black cherries, black pepper, chocolate powder and hints of liquorice. The palate has a soft entrance and is full bodied with lovely ripe fruit tannins in perfect harmony with oak nuances.
