Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Intense garnet hue with aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, mulberry, almond, and vanilla. Richly concentrated on the palate with creamy fine tannins that build in the mouth and are lifted by enticing acidity. Lifted fresh berry flavours with a savoury undertone and incredible vibrance that marries beautifully with its prominent frame. This is an "athletic wine" with chiselled beauty that shows incredible detail and beautiful layers. Fresh and inviting in its youth, the underlying structure will also reward cellaring."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage has a sense of hidden depths. Very youthful, it's a 'big' style of Pinot Noir, boldly coloured and sturdy, with dense, plummy, spicy flavours, firm tannins, and a long life ahead. Best drinking 2020+."
5 Stars & 19.0+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red, a little lighter on the edge, very youthful in appearance. The nose is firmly packed with deep and dense, tightly concentrated black berried fruits along with notes of liquorice, plum and spice, with nuances of dark herbs and whole bunch suggestions. The nose unfolds layered complexities. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a deeply concentrated and densely packed core of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits with nuances of black plums and liquorice, along with subtle notes of herbs and whole bunch elements, revealing mineral nuances. The palate has considerable extraction with fine-grained, flowery tannins and integrated, ripe acidity. The structure carries the wine to a fine, firm, dry-textured finish. This is a firm and densely packed, black-fruited Pinot Noir with liquorice notes and subtle herb, stalk and mineral complexities on a well-structured palate with flowery tannins. Match with roasted beef, lamb and venison, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 8-10 years. Clones 667, 777, 115, Abel and 5, from Chinaman’s Terrace, Bendigo, vines planted in 2006, fermented with 40% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 30 days on skins and aged 11.5 months in 31% new French oak. 497 dozen made."

92/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
“The boldness of Bendigo is on full show. This wine delivers a dark hued and dark fruited style with earthy notes and powdered chocolate. Arrives on thicker tannins with rich bold flavors in the dark cherry and chocolate zone.”
