4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"The tiny sub-region of Earnscleugh (between Alexandra and Clyde, on the Clutha River) is where Three Miners is located and where their magic is manifested.  I love this pinot noir because it’s so bright and spicy.  Soaked through with smoked strawberries, rhubarb, zesty, black tea and cherry flavours, it’s plush, perky and a fabulous example of something super-glorious."
4 Stars & 17.0+/20 Raymond Chan, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Light ruby-red colour with dark purple hues at the heart, lighter on the rim, and youthful in appearance. The nose has a slender but firmly packed core of vibrant, primary, dark-red cherry fruit entwined with violet and dark-red florals, some dark herbal elements and a hint of liquorice. This is fragrant and has a pretty aromatic lift. Light-medium bodied, the palate has an elegant heart of sweet, vibrant and uncomplicated dark-red cherry fruit along with an array of violet and red florals with some dark herb nuances. The fruit is fresh and lively and is lifted by fresh, lacy acidity which enlivens the mouthfeel. The fruit is underlined by light, supple tannins, which enable approachability, but has sufficient structure to carry the wine to a light, nuanced finish. This is an attractive and pretty, elegant Pinot Noir with vibrant cherry and floral flavours on a fine-grained, supple palate. Match with antipasto, tapas, tuna and salmon, or Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 777, 115 and 114, destemmed and fermented to 12.6% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 29% new French oak barriques."
