5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage is a rich, very ripe style of Pinot Noir. Matured in French oak casks (31 per cent new), it is a deeply coloured, powerful wine, with strong plum/spice flavours and a finely poised, well-rounded finish. Best drinking 2021+."

5 Stars & 19.0-/20 (95) Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Full, even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly proportioned and poised with excellent concentration and depth showing ripe black cherried and berried fruit with black plums, unfolding spices and liquorice with subtle notes of dark herbs and whole bunch stalk complexities. Medium-full bodied, the palate is packed and concentrated with a deep and driven core of ripe black cherry and berry fruit along with plums and liquorice, plus herbs and spices. The fruit has very good concentration and density and is underlined by plenty of fine-grained tannin extraction with balanced acidity. This has excellent linearity and carries with drive to a concentrated and sustained finish of black fruits, herbs and spices. This is a very concentrated and tightly bound black-fruited Pinot Noir with cherry, berry, plum and liquorice flavours and a firm, structured line. Match with lamb, beef, venison and semi-hard cheeses over the next 8-10 years. Clones 667, 777, 115, Abel and 5, from the ‘Zebra’ vineyard on Chinaman’s Terrace, vines planted 2006, fermented with 35% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 27 days on skins and 11.5 months in 31% new French oak. 8,696 bottles made."

5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"This is flatteringly classy; the gloriously perfumed bouquet shows Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, vanilla, cedar and dark mushroom characters, leading to a sumptuous palate that is silky and mouthfilling. Richly fruited and delectably textured, this charismatic pinot offers both refinement and opulence, promising to evolve splendidly. At its best: 2019 to 2027."
