Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Our flagship Pinot Noir – Sourced from our ‘Home Vineyard’ on a steep, elevated terrace in the Bendigo sub-region. Here, altitude, climate, fascinating soils and meticulous viticulture combine to produce Pinot Noir with stature and concentration. Pinot Noir is the largest part of our production and a complete no-compromise obsession.

The foundation of this wine is our focus on delivering low-yielding concentrated fruit that expresses our vineyard. In the winery, we employ traditional old world techniques; the grapes are handled gently and the wines are fermented using only the indigenous yeast from the vineyard. The wines are aged in barrel for 15-18 months before being bottled unfiltered, and are cellared before release."


94/100 Jamie Goode, September 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Ripe and concentrated with a little bit of lift bringing out the floral red and black fruit aromas. There’s a smoothness and elegance on the palate, but also a distinctive acid line keeping things fresh. Ripe black cherry and berry fruits, with some grip on the finish."


17.5/20 Tim Jackson MW, JancisRobinson.com, July 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Bendigo subregion. High elevation around 400 m. No whole bunch and low extraction, with just four punch-downs in total, because the vineyard produces naturally high levels of phenolics. Cork sealed. Lustrous pale purple. Meaty reduction, nutty spice, blackberry and thyme. Sweet-savoury blackberry, with lots of schisty minerality. Spiced, ripe bramble fruit. Light-moderate, chalky tannins."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, July 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Dark, even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full with gently building depth and concentration of ripe black cherry and berry fruit aromas melded with an amalgam of dark herbs and liquorice, along with savoury earth and some minerally reduction adding complexity. The aromatics form a tight and refined core. Full-bodied, the palate has rich and mouthfilling flavours of ripe, dark red and black berry fruit entwined with a subtle layering of savoury herbs, and complexing earth and game nuances. The fruit is well-concentrated with real presence and underlined by fine-grained flowery tannins providing plenty of structure, with balanced, integrated acidity. The flavours carry to a full, sustained finish. This is a rich and mouthfilling Pinot Noir with ripe fruit and an array of complexing nuances showing the beginning of secondary interest, on a fine-structured palate. Match with coq au vin, casseroles and slow-cooked game meat over the next 6-8+ years. Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard, hand-picked, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high portion of whole berries to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 17 months in 35% new French oak barrels. 1,046 cases made."

96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Immediate and enticing bouquet with layers of dark red berry fruits, plum, baking spice, oak, crushed rocks and complexity. On the palate a focused and detailed Pinot with flavours of toasty oak and brown baking spices, dark berries, plum and old rose. A lengthy finish, complex and filled with Pinosity. Youthful with loads of energy. Decant for service – best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+."
