Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Dark cherry and wild berry with lashings of savoury brown spice, whilst lavender floral notes add in detail and brightness. Dense, tight, dark berry notes lead into a compact palate. The wine finishes with savoury structural tannins enveloping the wine. Dark cherry flavours flow right through the structure and finish the wine with a flourish."


5 Stars Michael Copper (2016 Vintage)
"Powerful but not heavy, the 2016 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, grown on Chinaman's Terrace, at Bendigo, and barrel-aged for a year. Deep ruby, it is a fragrant, classy young wine, with vibrant cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, revealing excellent complexity and richness. Its freshness and structure suggest a long life ahead. Best drinking 2021+."


93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Smoky, coffee bean, red fruits, a lot of dried herb, red fruits and orange peel. Something of an amaro style, peppery powdery tannin, a bit dusty, and a dry finish of good length."


Rated Excellent to Outstanding, Mark Hendersen, Otago Daily Times, July 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"An intriguing soy/balsamic note starts the ball rolling, adding perfumed notes and a melange of red fruits. This plays in the sweet and sour spectrum: licorice and black tea-accented, a sweet-cherry-and-plum-driven palate matched by a zingy tang that adds brightness. A feeling of cool mountain stream over stones in the mouth, leading to a delightfully chewy close."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Familiar and welcoming scents of Otago Pinot Noir with red and dark cherry fruit, dried raspberry and plum. A layer of dried herb and undergrowth and for this example a clay/rock mineral layer. Dry, fruity and fleshy on the palate with flavours reflective of the nose, plenty of acidity and finer tannins finishing with a layer of wood smoke and spice. Best from mid 2019 through 2024."
