"This is a terrific Pinot Noir - great to drink now despite the sneaking feeling it's going to get even better with bottle age. Totally seductive ripe cherry, berry and plum flavours with added complexity from subliminal floral, spice, savoury and herb. The texture is to die for and the wine has impressive power as evidenced by a lingering finish that won't quit."


Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review


 

"Even ruby-red colour. On the nose soft and beautifully expressed with finesse and detail, with red berry fruit aromas and an array of red floral detail. The aromatics are seamless and show no sign of the warmer vintage (over 2015). On palate this has finely ripened fruit with red, rather than dark-red or black-berried fruits, but darker fruits emerge. This is all about perfume and elegance with seamless flowing textures. This is plush and fruity in youth, and undeniably pretty. Very fine-grained tannin extraction completes the wine. A beautiful wine." - Raymond Chan 19.5-/20 Points!


 

Enticing layers of floral, berry and spice notes complement earthy aromatics of wet stone and black tea. With time in the glass, deeper savoury notes and richness from the whole cluster use emerge. This vintage has shown wonderful finesse from the outset, with silky texture and an attractive seamlessness throughout. Focused and very elegant, the wine has fine persistent tannins extending the harmonious finish. Cellaring for up to 7-10 years
