90 Points & Top Wines of 2017 James Halliday
We just keep seeing Mike Press wines continually rate highly amongst Australia’s critics’ and all for the cost of a short five minute cab ride.
After 42 years making wine for premium wineries including Penfolds, Seppelts, Krondorf and as Chief Winemaker for Mildara Blass, winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy, numerous show trophies and medals, Mike and his wife Judy had a desire to leave the corporate side of the wine business and get in touch with the land by growing the best grapes possible in the premium Adelaide Hills region.
When the grape glut hit and the big wineries played dirty on their grape prices, Mike and Judy knew they had the material to make great wine….And they would sell it at unheard of prices to simply recoup the profit they should have received on the grapes used in the wine if sold at a reasonable price.
The Winner? You, the wine consumer and enthusiast! Premium Grapes, Great Wine, Unbelievable Value! Mike Press Wines.
“Mike Press is always value for money, but this wine takes it to another level. It’s crawling with grassy, green pea, citrus and kiwi fruit that take a millisecond to fill the palate, crunchy acidity there to provide an emphatic, cleansing finish. The one caveat is its need for food, the cuisine largely irrelevant, but Chinese/Thai/Malaysian would always fit the bill.” – 90 Points & Top Wines of 2017 James Halliday
