“Light to medium red/purple colour, with a lovely fragrant aroma, a superb bouquet recalling strawberry, spices, cranberry and raspberry, lifted and complex. It’s light to medium-bodied and intense, with delicious flavour, fresh and fragrant. Great fruit intensity and purity. An outstanding pinot” – 97 Points Huon Hooke
“Length is the order of the day. This is a wine of structural integrity first and foremost though crackles of wood spice, smoke and leaf matter make sure that the sweet-sour nature of the cherried fruit is complex. Everywhere you look here you see absolute signs of quality. It’s bright, brooding, savoury and sweet at once; it offers both tang and velvet. A glittering star of a wine.” – 97 Points James Halliday
