Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Our 2014 John Martin Pinot Noir has a bouquet of lush red and black berry fruits and exotic spices. On the palate, the wine offers a full mouthfeel and savoury flavour profile.​"

5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"This is outstanding. Grace and beauty, power and presence all in this compelling pinot. Complex aromas of dark cherry, game, floral and dried herb with elegant infusion of cedary oak on the nose. The palate exhibits exceptional concentration and refined mouthfeel, together with an abundance of delicate tannins. Beautifully poised and structured. At its best: 2018 to 2028."

5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, February 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter edged. The nose is elegant in expression but blossoms in volume to show aromas of ripe dark-red berry fruits and plums intermingling with subtle nuances of savoury herbs, lifted violet florals, and spicy oak. Mineral detail emerges to add interest with aeration. Medium-bodied, fruit flavours of ripe dark red berry and plums show with good mouthfeel and presence. The fruit in entwined with layers of dark and savoury herbs, liquorice and spices and sweet oak, providing complexing detail. The palate possesses good underlying power and drive, along with fine-grained tannin structure and grip. Balanced acidity adds energy, and the palate leads to a full finish of red fruits, florals and oak spices. This is a fulsome, rich and sweet Pinot Noir with plenty of presence and complexing detail, and spicy oak notes. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 70% Abel clone with clones 13 and 5, 92% from the ‘McLeod’ and 8% from the ‘Home’ vineyards, fermented with 10% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak barriques."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"The powerful 2014 vintage is a classic regional style, based on the 'best vineyard parcels'. Matured for a year in French oak barriques, it's a very harmonious wine, deep ruby, mouthfilling, fleshy and savoury, with highly concentrated plum, cherry and spice flavours, showing lovely ripeness, texture and complexity. Well worth cellaring."

94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"A selection from the best parts of the vineyard. Dark cherry, pencil and vanilla oak, spice and floral perfume. Medium bodied, with a mineral feel and character, a slight chicory and chinotto bitterness, pliant fine grained tannin, and plenty of length. Impressive. "
