See below our full list of Audrey Wilkinson wines included in the 2024 Halliday Wine Companion;

Audrey Wilkinson Museum Release The Lake Shiraz 2014 Hunter Valley – 97 Pts

“The colour is an extraordinary bright crimson, moving into an extremely expressive bouquet of poached plum, red cherries and spices. Has just reached maturity, but the changes that the next decade will bring will result in a graceful wine that speaks of the variety and place. As of now, certain of its place in the world.”

Audrey Wilkinson Museum Release The Ridge Reserve Semillon 2010 Hunter Valley – 97 Pts

“Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon 2005 has crashed through the price sound barrier at $150 (for Landmark Vintage releases), so $100 here doesn’t seem as improbable as it once might have. The bouquet is good and the palate is exquisite with its purity and perfect balance. It retains its acidity, but it’s no more than a polite reminder of the variety and the skill of the winemaking team that was responsible. Flavours? Well, citrus/lime, honeysuckle, apple and grapefruit, all in lockstep and harmony of a high order.”

Audrey Wilkinson The Oakdale Chardonnay 2022 Hunter Valley – 96 Pts

“Hand-picked fruit, solely from 145yo estate vines; whole-bunch pressed to 100% new French puncheons for fermentation; no mlf; matured for 9 months with fortnightly bâtonnage. Very well made and balanced, its bouquet and palate complex but perfectly balanced, the finish likewise. Elegant, and with finesse.”

Audrey Wilkinson Museum Release The Oakdale Chardonnay 2014 Hunter Valley – 96 Pts

“From a block of vines that were 40yo at vintage (thus almost 50yo now); fermented and matured in French oak (50% new). There’s a line of grapefruit running through a challenging and complex wine with more than a hint of Burgundy in its make-up. Travelling well.”

Audrey Wilkinson The Ridge Semillon 2022 Hunter Valley – 96 Pts

“Hand-picked old vines; whole-bunch pressed, cold settled for two days, clear juice racked and cool fermented for 15 days; lightly fined and bottled early to retain freshness. The wine has still to pick up any colour, but it has a juicy element that sets it apart. Ready to enjoy now or in a decade, with progressive changes of lime/lemon on lightly browned toast, the finish with steely acidity that provides the backbone.”

Audrey Wilkinson Winemakers Selection Verdelho 2022 Hunter Valley – 95 Pts

“It’s difficult to raise expectations with verdelho, and if that limitation has been dealt with, even more difficult to live up to them. Ok. So what is the downer? You might guess this wine is an exceptional example, and you’d be right. This is the best Hunter verdelho I can remember: it’s got a lovely cage of grapefruit zest cage that draws you back again and again, freshening the mouthfeel as it does so.”

Audrey Wilkinson Marsh Estate Semillon 2022 Hunter Valley – 95 Pts

“Dry-grown vines approaching 50 years of age; standard Audrey Wilkinson vinification. The balance between the citrus-oriented flavour and its minerally acidity is first-class, immediately signalling the cool vintage. The interplay between lemon, grapefruit and Granny Smith apple is particularly attractive.”

Audrey Wilkinson Winemakers Selection Gewürztraminer 2022 Hunter Valley – 95 Pts

“Stares you down with its relentless assault of gewürztraminer no backing down. If ever a gewürztraminer can be described as medium bodied (on the back label) this is one – aromas and flavours of yellow peach, this is it, plus.”
