94+/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, December 2016 (2015 Vintage)
Pale ruby-purple coloured, the 2015 First Paddock Pinot Noir has a compelling nose of red cherries, cranberries and red currants, plus underlying garrigue, earth, game and dried herb notes. Light to medium-bodied and displaying commendable finesse, the palate has a great intensity of complex, earthy/savoury flavours with a solid structure and excellent length. Bravo! Drink 2016-2024."
97/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2015 Vintage)
"​Delicious bouquet and very enticing with aromas of wild strawberry, wild red cherry, baking spices and new oak, a layer of toastiness, mushroom crushed rock soil notes; alluring and quite complex. On the palate - complex, dry, packed with light red fruit flavours centering on wild strawberry and red cherry, the baking spices kick in with suggestions of vanilla and clove, fine to moderate tannins, plenty of acidity and lengthy engaging finish. Great balance and finish. Loads of potential. Drink now and through 2028."
5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​The bouquet is immensely seductive showing red berry, game, dried herb, almond and floral aromas, leading to an impressively focused and finely textured palate that is elegant yet powerful at the same time. The wine is wonderfully framed by loads of polished tannins, and the palate is linear throughout then expands to a glorious finish. The wine expresses the Gibbston district perfectly with its savoury, floral perfume, together with refined mouthfeel. At its best: 2018 to 2025."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Full, moderately deep ruby-red colour with purple tints, lighter on the rim. The nose is concentrated with deep, intense and well-packed aromas of dark-red cherry fruit harmoniously melded with an amalgam of fresh, dark and dried herbs, and savoury whole cluster stalk elements, unfolding piquant red floral perfumes. This has power and aromatic depth. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweet, vibrant and juicy flavours of dark-red cherry fruit integrated with savoury dark herbs and whole bunch stalk notes. The fruit flavours form a well-concentrated core and is supported by balanced, fine-grained powdery tannin extraction, and enlivened by refreshing, lacy acidity. The wine flows with vitality and linearity, leading to a lingering finish of red fruits and savoury herbs. This is a densely packed, but elegant Pinot Noir with red cherry and savoury herb flavours on a vibrant, fine-grained palate. Match with wild duck and pork dishes over the next 6-7+ years. Clone 5 fruit from the first 25 rows, hand-picked and sorted, indigenous yeast fermented with 50% whole bunches to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 30% new French oak. 140 dozen made."
