5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Dense, concentrated, rich and quite fleshy wine with dark cherry, plum, wood smoke and spicy oak. A little closed and youthful but showing impressive intensity and cellaring potential. Can be enjoyed now but will benefit from bottle age."
5 Stars & Top 10 Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Older vines and recent conversion to biodynamics have seen Quartz Reef pinots achieve new levels of elegance. A dark, muscular presence that is very Bendigo is present in this wine, but it is tempered by a lithe softness. Warm, dark fruit and spice notes flow evenly to a lingering finish."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Designed for cellaring, this Central Otago red is estate-grown on a steep, north-facing, 'seriously warm' site at Bendigo. The 2014 vintage was matured for 15 months in French oak barriques. Deeply coloured, it is a powerful, full-bodied wine, with concentrated, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, ripe, complex and savoury, excellent harmony and a sense of real potential; best drinking 2020 onwards. Certified biodynamic."
93/100 & Editors’ Choice Wine Enthusiast (2014 Vintage)
"Owner-winemaker Rudi Bauer believes in making Pinot Noirs that can age, so it's no surprise that this is darker, firmer and more muscular than most. There's plenty of toast, cedar and coffee-bean-like oak, but it's amply supported by plum and black cherry fruit. The finish is silky enough to make this wine approachable now, but it will likely improve through at least 2025."
