95 points "The grapes from both vineyards have gone to a who's who of winemakers in Central Victoria, but an increasing amount is being made under the Turner's Crossing label, not surprising given the exceptional quality of the wines. Phil Bennett and winemaker Sergio Carlei have joined Paul Jenkins as co-owners of the vineyard, with Sergio putting his money where his winemaking mouth is. Turners Crossing Shiraz Viognier 2006: Crimson-purple; a strikingly opulent wine, the 95% Shiraz/5% Viognier doing all the talking, with a rippling cascade of black fruits and almost powdery but persistent ripe tannins; maturation in older oak exactly the right call. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. Rating 95 points Drink 2021 $26 " Best 2011-2021
