Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Dark ruby red in the glass with a nose of blackberries, black Doris plum, subtle oak, allspice and rosemary.  Palate has a rich velvety texture with beautifully integrated soft tannins and flavours of dark red fruits, cocoa nib, black coffee and fresh Portobello mushrooms."
97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2015 Vintage)
"This is glorious and gratifying. The beautifully expressed bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, black olive, cedar and violet characters with nuances of clove and bitter chocolate notes. The palate is superbly weighted and concentrated, and exhibits awesome fruit purity together with rich texture and seductive savoury complexity, brilliantly framed by loads of polished tannins. Multi-layered and hugely appealing with a potential to evolve magnificently. At its best: 2018 to 2025."
96/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 Vintage)
"Rich, generously proportioned pinot noir with concentrated plum and dark cherry flavours plus a suggestion of floral (possibly rose petal) and fresh herb characters supported by classy oak. The fruit sweetness is perfectly offset by fine, drying and slightly sappy tannins that suggest good cellaring potential. This is a very classy wine indeed."
95/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2015 Vintage)​
"Ripe and generous bouquet with aromas of red berry fruits – a melding of cherry, strawberry and plum, these are underpinned with abundant oak and mineral scents. On the palate – crisp, firm, tense, youthful and dry. Flavours reflect the nose with wild berries and florals, plenty of mineral and wood spice; fine to moderate tannins with silky needle point moments, medium+ acidity and lengthy unfurling finish. Drink now if decanted with ideal window from 2018 through 2028."
5 Stars & 19.0+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, showing good depth, a little lighter on the rim. This has a firmly concentrated nose with a rounded core of ripe dark-red berry fruit entwined with nuances of red plums, along with subtle notes of herbs and lifted dark-red and violet florals in a beautifully harmonious amalgam. Medium full-bodied, the palate is rich and sweet-fruited with flavours of dark-red berry fruits and red plums lifted by red and violet florals. Layers of herbs and savoury earthy detail unfold adding interest. The palate builds in mid-palate richness, flowing smoothly, revealing considerable tannin extraction, the textures very fine-grained and flowery. A fine edge of acidity provides energy and tension, leading to a long, lingering, elegantly proportioned finish of sweet red fruits. This is a rich, sweet, red-fruited Pinot Noir with subtle complexing floral herb and earthy detail, considerable extract, and excellent energy. Match with poultry and pork, lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 7-9 years. Clones 5 and 115 from ‘The Brothers Block’ hand-picked and sorted, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented. 25% amongst the vines, to 14.0% alc., the wine spending one month on skins and aged 15 months in 70% new French oak. 251 cases made."
