James Halliday - 97 Points!
"Combine red fruits of cherry and raspberry with subtle whole-bunch notes and the fresh morning perfume of damp rose petals, it's an orchestra of aromas and flavours. Clean and lingering on the palate, yet round and textural whilst exhibiting a light frame supported by fine savoury tannins. An essay in controlled power, complexity and authenticity – one of the best expressions of pinot we have achieved at Giaconda so far, comparable to some of the greats from '89, 92 and 95."
"In the tradition of Giaconda Estate Pinots, generosity is a subtext to red and black cherry fruit, the tannins underpin the length of a wine of great quality. The vintage was perfect for pinot, giving the certainty of at least 10 years development of spice and violets amongst other secondary characters."
