5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Engaging and complex, the inviting bouquet shows red/black cherry, fragrant spice, thyme, nutmeg and floral characters. The palate is wonderfully weighted and rounded, delivering sweet berry flavours and silky texture, magnificently complemented by spicy nuances and fine tannins. Elegant, stylish and delicious. At its best: now to 2025."


5 Stars & 18.5-/20 (93) Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Even, light garnet-red colour, a little paler on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with a fine, tightly bound core with good depth and intensity of dark-red cherry and berry fruit melded with fresh and dark herbs, a little floral lift and some whole bunch stalk nuances. This is slender but detailed. Medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated heart with intense and penetrating flavours of dark-red berry fruit melded with fresh and dark herbs. Whole bunch stalk notes and lifted florals add interest. The palate forms an elegant core and is enlivened by fresh acidity, and supported by fine-grained tannin extraction. This has good energy and linearity and carries to a long, sustained finish. This is an elegant, intense and penetrating Pinot Noir with flavours of dark cherries and berries with fresh and dark herbs on a lively palate wine fine tannins and excellent linearity. Match with tuna and salmon, poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. Clones 5, 115, Abel and 777, from the company’s ‘Grants Road’ and the ‘River T’ vineyards, vines planted 2001, fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 20 days on skins and aged 11 months in 27% new oak. 5,800 bottles produced."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Moderately youthful, the 2017 vintage was matured in French oak casks (27 per cent new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby-hued, with a hint of development, it has a scented bouquet of herbs and nuts. An elegant, vibrantly fruity red, with good complexity, it should be at its best 2019+."
