JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
The block was planted in '87 adjacent to the winery. Purple-crimson hue; there is no mention of whole bunches or stems on the label, but there is discussion of the robust nature of this pinot and layers of fine tannins. It's got more power to the fruit than you might realise. Like all the Pipers Brook '17 Pinots, these are wines for the long game.
RALPH KYTE-POWELL - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
Block A10 pinot smells intensely of cherry and plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The richly flavoured palate is concentrated in flavour and tightly structured with ripe tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Needs time. Cellar 10 years plus.
GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT
Darker fruit, smoky and spicy, more earth, but also a dried rose thing happening. Medium-bodied, rich and grainy, but balanced in acidity and freshness, emery tannin pushes through the wine, and there’s sap, cherry and spice rolling out on a distinctly ‘minerally / lead pencil’ finish. Lovely stuff. Suspect there’s a bit more to come here.
HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW
Medium to deep red/purple colour, youthful and fresh, the aroma spicy and oak-tinged, the palate deep in dark cherry flavours, with a fine coating of tannin that runs right across the palate. A deep and structured young pinot that needs more time to emerge fully. Excellent and high potential.
