“Pleasingly pungent pinot noir with bright dark cherry, raspberry, spice and smoky oak flavours. Intense, flavoursome wine with a structure of peppery tannins that suggest good cellaring potential.”
Bob Campbell MW, Gourmet Traveller Wine, Dec ’17/Jan ‘18
Made from grapes from the Lowburn Ferry vineyard, it typically has an aromatic nose and lifted perfume of spice and cherry. Rich and concentrated palate with ripe red and dark fruits, hints of chocolate and subtle integrated oak, with a long finish.
“An intense nose. Plenty of intensity here. Perfumed. There are some meaty notes there with fine spices like clove and cardamom. Really good grip on the palate. Full but rounded, supple and juicy with a long harmonious finish. Really, really good with food.” – Andrea Larsson
“A good ripe berry Pinot fruit with some lovely aromatics. A very complex wine with a lovely velvety textured palate. Ripe Pinot flavours and good tannins. A delicious vibrant Pinot with the food with a lovely velvety texture and terrific length.” – Kim Milne
“Attractive deep crimson hues. A really smart effusive nose with mixed berries spice and earthy aromas. A delightful palate rich with primary fruit and complex wine making influences.” – Ken Dobler
