97 points. It drinks beautifully now, and most likely in another thirty years. A new high-water mark for Mount Mary Quintet" Gary Walsh
97 Points. Just because the Mount Mary wines are famed for their purity, elegance and balance doesn't mean that they eschew power and layered complexity. Quintet (the five Bordeaux varieties) is the king of the portfolio, the wine that was closest to founder Dr John Middleton's irascible heart. The vintage may have been especially great for pinot, but the rainbow of cassis, redcurrant, dried herb and bramble flavours are absolutely exemplary. Cork. 13.3% alc. To 2035"- James Halliday
"97+ Points. It’s all just so, and first and last impressions are of a wine of supreme balance, perfect ripeness, and phenomenal length. Red and black fruits, violets, pencil shavings and sweet earthiness. Medium bodied, supple yet gravelly tannin, density and thickness, delivered with no heaviness, cool fresh raspberry acidity, and *that* finish, infused with black tea. It drinks beautifully now, and most likely in another thirty years. A new high-water mark for Mount Mary Quintet, I feel. Tasted: Aug17 Alcohol: 13.3% Drink: 2020 - 2045+"Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
