Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Award winning winemaker Grant Taylor has created the McQueen Pinot Noir. The name denotes the contrasting elements of tradition & the unconventional – opulent as Hollywood’s Royale & delicate as London’s lavish Fashionista. A long silky textured mouth feel, with rich chocolate & tasty earth aromas supported by regally chic spice. Ripe plum & lush black cherry reveal the ‘Taylor’ made tannin structure with flawless complexity. The perfect ensemble for any occasion… the McQUEEN is the King of Cool.

The Bendigo fruit contributes ripe berry flavours & masculine structure; Brannockburn gives delicious Otago cherry notes & wild thyme spice. The grace of the Gibbston fruit completes the wine giving it gorgeous floral notes, bright acidity & tremendous length. 2015 was a cooler vintage showing more red fruit, perfume & the classy, elegant appeal of timeless Pinot. Captivating in its youth, this wine will continue to deliver grace & intrigue and reward those with patience."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​This impressively fruited pinot shows wonderful aromas of dark cherry, plum, mixed spice and floral with nuances of vanilla and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is concentrated and richly fruited, while remaining refined and structured. A hugely appealing pinot offering excellent fruit power together with seamless mouthfeel and terrific length. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​Dark, even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. This has an elegantly presented nose with concentrated and refined aromas of dark red berry and black cherry fruit harmoniously melded with thyme herb layers and subtle whole bunch complexing stalk elements. Attractive black mineral detail unfolds with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is fine in proportion with concentrated flavours of ripe black berry and cherry fruit integrated with layers of thyme herbs and whole bunch stalk notes. Floral lift, mineral nuances and a suggestion of oak toast add complexing interest. The wine is very fine-textured with flowery tannins, and balancing acidity enlivens and enriches the mouthfeel. The wine flows smoothly to a long, lingering, sweet, black-fruited finish with herb notes. This is an elegantly concentrated, refined, black-fruited Pinot Noir with subtle herb and whole cluster complexities, and a fine-textured palate. Match with duck, pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. Central Otago fruit, 40% Bendigo, 35% Bannockburn and 25% Gibbston, fermented with 20% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in 32% new French oak."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"​The 2015 vintage was grown at Bendigo (50 per cent), Gibbston (35 per cent) and Bannockburn (15 per cent). Matured for a year in French oak casks, it is a fragrant, deep ruby wine with mouthfilling body, concentrated, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, showing good complexity, fine-grained tannins and obvious potential. Best drinking mid-2018+."
