2022 Stargazer Palisander Vineyard Pinot Noir:

‘The hue and depth are typical; this is Tasmania speaking, and an introduction to what is a celestial pinot noir. It’s pure and refined, with wild strawberry, pomegranate and mesmerising red berries of field and forest, all with spices to boot. 98 points

James Halliday, THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN, 18 November 2023

2022 Stargazer Coal River Valley & Derwent Valley Chardonnay:

‘Light straw with aromas of lemon, grapefruit, nashi pear and white peach with wafts of struck match, soft spice, almond paste, white flowers and stone. Quite concentrated on the palate yet reigned in beautifully by the vivid, stony acidity. Finishes long and sapid with lipsmacking intensity and a lovely textural sway.’

Dave Brookes, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION, 2 October 2023

2021 Stargazer Palisander Vineyard Riesling:

‘Bright lemon yellow with lemon pith, dried mango and broken oyster shell aromatics lifting from the glass. Palate remains in the citrus profile with a subtle smoked spice note underneath but it’s the textural elements here that draw you in.’

Stuart Knox, THE REAL REVIEW, 2 February 2023

2022 Stargazer Coal River Valley Riesling:

‘Precise and focused with crystalline acidity and pitch-perfect tension as it saunters the ridgeline of fruit sweetness and acidity finishing dry with impressive detail, clarity and drive. Astounding value.’

2023 Stargazer Tasmania Tupelo:

‘I dig these Alsatian-style ‘gestalt’ blends. All varieties involved reporting for duty and getting on admirably for our drinking pleasure. This year’s makeup is 41/28/26/5% pinot gris/pinot blanc/riesling/gew├╝rztraminer. It’s all slinky and textural (hello eight hours of skin contact) and the shimmering acidity draws everything into line nicely. Think citrus, yellow plum, white flowers, soft spice and crushed stone and you’re on the track. Just a joy to drink.’

2022 Stargazer Tasmania Rada:

‘Light, airy ruby in the glass, it’s immediately a very pretty and complex-smelling wine. Aromas of redcurrant and cranberry, exotic spices, pressed purple flowers, amaro herbs, rhubarb and dried tangerine peel draw you into the glass. Spacious and precise with a diaphanous fruit presence and wisps of gamey complexity as it makes its endearing journey across the palate.’
