Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"A unique parcel within Rippon, Emma’s Block faces eastward on the lakefront where ancient clay reefs run laterally through fine schist gravels. Emma’s Block is named after the great-great-great grandmother of the current generation of the Mills family, through whom the name entered into the family. Form & feel: Detailed, sleek, fine, glide, animated femininity."
96+/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, March 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"A blend of an entire site within the Rippon estate. Emma’s Block is much more about a Burgundian model, in as much as it is showcasing a lieu dit of Rippon, rather than patches of the estate assembled. Emma’s typically more delicate than Tinkler’s.

Deep scented wine, warm spice, clove and cinnamon particularly, touch of truffle, booze macerated cherries, generosity is a theme. Bright, fine and silky in the palate. Spreads slowly and with ease through the mouth, pert in cherry fruit flavours, green herbs and a web of powdered stony tannins follow. Feels pure, transparent and nourishing, in its way. It grows on you that this is an epic pinot noir. Lightbulbs and fireworks. That texture and sense of purity is amazing. Wow moments."
