Description

Bright, pale red colour in the glass. Vibrant red and purple berries, cherries and herbal spice. Oak is quiet. Sapid and serious, winemaking artifice unleashed to great effect. Excellent value. 92 points, Nick Butler, The Real Review

Tobacco and alpine herbs, red cherries and black, a gentle slip of sweet, bacony cedar wood. This is a deft example of the variety, its charm tucked away in various rooms, its finish bright and lingering. 93 points, Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion

Complex and inviting, the wine shows dark cherry, clove, thyme and toasted almond characters on the nose with nuances of tapenade and game. It’s succulent and attractively expressed on the palate with sweet berry notes together with spicy undertones, elegantly framed by fine polished tannins. 93 points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This release comes from the rocky soils of the Rising Vineyard, and from the outset it aims high. 33% whole bunches in the ferment and matured in 30% new oak. You can see the hard site born out in the wine – it’s bony, but not ungenerous. Sinewy, with a layer of vanilla oak lifting up the palate, the mode less about generosity and more about savour. An intellectual Pinot and ultimately it works, though don’t come looking for instant gratification. Like. Best drinking: now to seven years. 93 points, Andrew Graham, ozwinereview.com
