“Deep red-purple, impressively intense and youthful in colour. The bouquet is reserved and subtle with savoury underbrush and dried-herbiage aromas, plenty of suggestions of whole-bunch, joining with concentrated dark-cherry fruit which really drives this wine. Powerful, dense, rich and supple in texture, the tannins lavish but ripely smooth, the whole thing lasting a long time on the finish. A top-flight pinot that deserves a bit of time in the cellar”. 97/100, Huon Hooke – The Real Review
“The first vineyard picked across the single vineyard portfolio. North-facing and warm. Riveting aromas of bush plum, Chinese lacquer, red cherry and clove. A warm and intense mid-palate, straddling medium- to fuller-bodied in the context of pinot. A bit bolshy. A bristle of oak holds court at the back end, corralling the fruit while compressing it into a subtle tension. The inaugural release of this site. Good it is, too. Drink or hold”. – 94 Points, Ned Goodwin.
