Blue Gold Medal – Sydney International Wine Competition 2020


Wild Earth have produced some seriously good wines over the years, winning a cupboard full of Trophies and medals from around the world. With star winemaker Jen Parr heading the winemaking team and seriously good fruit from the golden sub-region of Bannockburn this is simply too good to miss out on. Enjoy now or put some away as it will easily cellar for another 8 years or so.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This Pinot Noir came from a highly awarded site in Bannockburn. The fruit was hand harvested at optimal ripeness with harvest dates ranging from early to late March which was on average one month earlier than usual. Several ferments went into the blend ranging from 0-50% whole bunches per fermenter with the resulting blend having around 25% whole clusters which aids the tannin structure and aromatics of the wine. The total time on skins ranging from 3 to 4 weeks. The wine was aged in fine grain French Oak: 25% new, 35% 1 year old and 40% 2-5 year old barriques for approximately 12 months. The winemaking intention was for transparency in order to showcase the great personality of the vineyard in a vintage that was truly extraordinary."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Offering gorgeous fruit purity together with seductive spicy nuances, the wine shows dark cherry, plum, vanilla, thyme, anise and roasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is silky-smooth and wonderfully flowing. It is beautifully harmonious and persistent with a multi-layered mouthfeel. At its best: now to 2026."


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"It's easy to love the pronounced, fruit focused flavours of Wild Earth Pinot Noir with plum, dark cherry, berry, fresh herb and spicy oak flavours. Quite a supple wine with soft, seductive texture."


90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Varietal and distinctive bouquet of Pinot Noir with aromas of dark cherry and dark plum, no mistaking the aromas of toasty wood with cinnamon and vanilla. Dry on the palate with flavours that mirror the cherry and red stone fruits, fine to moderate chalky tannins and medium+ acidity are contrasted by the fruit and oak flavours. Balanced and well made, Drink now and through 2022."


4 ½ Stars Winestate Magazine (2018 Vintage)
"Fragrant, savoury, single-vineyard Bannockburn red, matured for a year in French oak barriques (25% new).  Deep ruby, well-structured wine with fresh, youthful cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent ripeness and complexity "
