Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The primary fruit is still dominant in the front palate, the mid palate is tightly wound with the structural elements (acid & tannin) very much holding sway - much as a young limestone terroir Pinot should look at this stage. The finish is long and sinewy with some nuance of oak and spice but definitely a wine that will deliver more over the next 5 years as the tannins resolve and the acid softens allowing the details of the terroir to shine through. I'd expect this to age in a similar way to the 2011 but with slightly more fruit expression and depth of flavour."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Full, even ruby-red colour with some depth and youthful purple hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly proportioned with refined and concentrated, well-packed and integrated aromas of dark-red berry and cherry fruit with dark-red florals and liquorice notes in a complex amalgam of dark herbs and minerals. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweet and juicy flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with dark herbs and subtle notes of liquorice and spice, unfolding dark-red florals, herbs and minerals. The flavours form a dense and concentrated core and flow along a fine-textured palate, with fresh, underlying acidity and cut, carrying to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a rich and elegantly concentrated, individual Pinot Noir with cherry-berry fruit, along with liquorice, spices, and a complex herb and mineral amalgam on a fine-textured, lingering palate. Serve with herb-marinated duck and pork dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Multi clone blend from ‘Clos Ostler’, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 18% new French oak."
