"Indeed this is a good shiraz." Campbell Mattinson


"It probably worked as a talking point at some stage but you'd have to say that Pig in the House is one of the less fortunate names for a wine business. It sounds like a novelty brand but at $30 we're caught between novelty cheap and novelty super expensive; no man's land. But then, maybe I'm just in a grumpy mood. There's nothing wrong with the wine.Indeed this is a good shiraz. It’s fruit-driven, it’s clean, it’s well-ripened, it gets the overall balance right. It’s damn tasty. Berries, graphite, the suggestion of asphalt. It’s punchy throughout and satisfying to finish. The wine itself: no hesitation in recommending it. Rated: 91 Points. Price : $30. Drink : 2016 - 2022." Campbell Mattinson

“Organic farming is the baseline for this wine... and it’s appropriately vibrant with fresh, gently spicy, forestberry fruitiness. This is a good-quality, slurpable, rich Aussie shiraz that feels just right alongside the comfort of pub fare.” Mike Bennie, Sunday Tasmanian, 2017

"This wine has such a lovely label. In the glass, it has an initial, rich warm climate shiraz; impression of baked plums and pepper, before settling to reveal a fruity expression of fleshy blueberries. The palate continues the juicy blueberry theme." Sean Mitchell. http://www.grapeobserver.com
