'An impressive, refined pinot noir that is drinking beautifully in its youth though will continue to evolve with time. '
95 Points - Huon Hooke
Two different picks on the one block. One early for vitality, second for texture. 7T of chilled fruit destemmed to 3 different open fermenters with varying whole cluster % if any. 100% whole berry. Cold soak 5 days, natural ferment, pump overs only, pressed at 2 baume to tank and French oak barrique (15% new) the following day to finish ferment on heavy lees. Unfined, unfiltered.
Super fine and bright and pure, you can expect waves of cool, cherry, spicy, sappy fruit and spices, a vibrant, refreshing and complex palate and a long, spicy close. Sadly we have so little!

TROPHY FOR BEST PINOT NOIR - 2017 Sydney Royal Wine Show
'There is a slight lift on the bouquet from partial barrel fermentation and long lees contact. This is a fitting complement to the power of the primary fruit flavours of strawberry and fresh berry compote. There is a softness to this Pinot Noir, the silky or satin like tannin-structure is first rate, with just enough back-palate weight from stalk use and light French oak, to hold its length.'
95 Points - James Halliday
'Gorgeous aromatics of strawberries and spice. The palate is tight and fine with excellent cherry flavours and subtle spicy nuances. The acidity carries the wine perfectly. An impressive, refined pinot noir that is drinking beautifully in its youth though will continue to evolve with time. '
95 Points - Huon Hooke
'Straight into excellent territory here. This is why we’re so lucky in Australia: we get this level of pinot noir for $55, which isn’t cheap in general terms but in a world pinot noir context is a steal. So complex, so satiny, so well framed, so persistent. Woodsmoke, sulphur, tangy red/black cherry, super-fresh strawberries and fistfuls of dry spice. Sinewy and satiny simultaneously. It will develop beautifully but personally I wouldn’t;’t be able to resist right now.'
