Top New Release Australian Reds - Gourmet Traveller WINE - December/January issue
This is deep coloured and full bodied for an Aussie pinot. The bouquet is youthful and still forming, with dark cherry and dark plum aromas allied with smoky oak, but stemmy whole-bunch nuances are subtle. Ample soft tannins and good concentration. Needs more time. 96 Points.
GOLD - 95 Points, 2019 Australian Pinot Noir Challenge - November 2019
James Suckling - June 2019
This is a very driven and complex red with dried-strawberry, tea, coffee and mahogany aromas and flavours. Full-bodied yet integrated and compact, giving the wine a refined and very structured impression. This is one to watch. 95 points
Campbell Mattinson - September 2019
This Pinot Noir release is marked in its spice and general savouriness but the oak seems to have been dialled down slightly on previous releases. It may just be the season. We get beet and black cherry, plum and twiggy spice, with gentle infusions of clove and woodsmoke. If it was a photograph it would be vivid with earth-like tones. Acid runs refreshingly through, keeping it lively, but there’s excellent flavour here in volume terms and an impressive strike of grainy tannin. It’s another tip-top release, without question. 94+ points
