5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, January 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Dark ruby-red colour with garnet hues on the rim. The bouquet is elegantly presented with aromas of dark red berry fruits, thyme herbs and complex, fragrant whole bunch stalk and dried herb layers that unfold in volume, and build in intensity. Medium-bodied, the flavours of dark red berry fruits and complex fresh herbs, savoury whole bunch stalk elements and dried thyme herb notes are intense and penetrating, forming a fine, firm core. The palate features fine-grained tannin structure with linearity, and brisk, refreshing acidity providing energy and drive. The wine carries to a lively, juicy, long lingering finish of dark berry fruits and dark herbs. This is an elegant and intensely flavoured Pinot Noir with lively mouthfeel and complex flavours of dark red fruits entwined with complex savoury herb notes. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked game dishes over the next 5-6 years. Predominantly clone 115 with clones 5 and 6, the oldest vines from the ‘Hawkshead’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented with 33% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 30% new French oak."
