5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The very youthful 2017 vintage was matured in French oak casks (32 per cent new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deeply coloured, with a fragrant, spicy bouquet, it is full-bodied, with highly concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing good complexity. Best drinking 2021+."


5 Stars & 19.0/20 (95) Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full and well-packed with interwoven aromas of dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and come complexing whole bunch stalk perfumes. This is quite complete on the nose with great density and presence. Medium-full bodied, the palate has full and richly packed, deep flavours of dark-red berry fruit harmoniously entwined with dark herbs and whole bunch stalk elements. The flavours are mouthfilling and underlined by fine, grainy tannin extraction and structure providing plenty of body, texture and grip. The acidity is fresh and lending energy to the wine, which shows completeness as it carries to a full finish. This is a rich and fulsome, complete and balanced Pinot Noir with dark-red berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and complexing whole bunch notes on a well-structured, fresh palate. Match with herb-marinated lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 7-9 years. Clones 5, 6, 115, 113, 114 and 777 from the company’s vineyard, vines planted 2000, fermented to 13.5% alc. with 20% whole bunches, the wine on skins 24 days and aged 11 months in 32% new French oak. 8,581 bottles produced."


5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A profound pinot; the captivating bouquet shows dark cherry, blueberry, violet, cedar and game characters with a hint of dried herb note. The palate is concentrated and weighty, while remaining poised and refined, backed by velvety mouthfeel and fine tannins. Gracefully powerful and alluringly seductive. At its best: 2019 to 2030."
