Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"From a high altitude sloping vineyard 420 metres above sea level in Bendigo, the 2015 School House Pinot Noir shows the benefit in hillside planting. 

Intense yet shapely fruit is offset by a natural acid drive, nervy structure and coating minerality. Visually beautiful, it is a vineyard that consistently performs. Deeply coloured, with alluring dark fruit, anise, and mocha aromatics. The palate is sweetly layered, with delicate generosity on the front giving way to an intensely structured mid. Firm, yet suavely sculpted back tannins lead the long, sustained finish."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"This consistently classy red is estate-grown in the late-ripening School House Vineyard, at Bendigo, an extremely elevated site (up to 420 metres above sea level). Still a baby, the 2015 vintage was matured for 11 months in French oak casks (33 per cent new). Bold and youthful in colour, it is powerful and fruit-packed, with dense, vibrant plum and spice flavours. Sweet-fruited, ripe and savoury, with fine-grained tannins, it's a very generous wine, full of potential; open 2018+."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, August 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Made from grapes grown in the upper slopes (420m) of the Bendigo sub-region using 25% whole clusters in fermentation. Rich, dense pinot noir with dark-fleshed plum, dark cherries, wood smoke, old leather and liquorice flavours. This is a powerful wine that can be appreciated now but will certainly reward cellaring. Drink 2016 to 2026."
