5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Still very youthful, the 2017 vintage was matured in French oak barrels (27 per cent new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent structure and concentration, and a fragrant bouquet."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight garnet hues. The nose is gently full and voluminous with ripe fruit aromas of dark-red berry fruit along with dark plums entwined with subtle notes of dried and dark herbs and some earthiness, unfolding red floral perfumes. This is elegant in expression with gentleness and harmony, unfolding whole bunch stalk elements with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is openly accessible and sweetly rich and mouthfilling with flavours of ripe red berry fruit along with herbs and earth. This has whole bunch stalk and red floral perfumes that add aromatic lift. The mouthfeel is soft with a gently concentrated heart with layers of fruit, herbs and earth all underlined by fine-grained, supple tannin structure with subtle acidity and freshness adding to the vitality. The flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is a gently mouthfilling, accessible Pinot Noir with dark-red berry fruit, herbs and earth with floral lift on a supple, structured palate. Match with wild duck and pork over the next 6+ years. Clones 115,777, 113,5, 10/5 and 13 from a single vineyard an Hall Road, vines planted 2000, fermented with 25% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 27 days on skins and aged 11 months in 27% new oak. 7,741 bottles made."


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"It is irresistibly expressed on the nose showing dark berry, raspberry, dried herb, toasted almond and olive characters. The palate is equally engaging and gratifying with sweet berry flavours and multi-layered mouthfeel, finishing superbly long and flowing. Sophisticated, comforting and stunning. At its best: 2019 to 2027."
