" Perhaps the most powerful Main Ridge pinot yet, this ripe and assertive young pinot has a sweet and intensely perfumed aroma of dark cherries, beetroot, plums and redcurrant backed by assertive new oak. Steeped in powerful berry, plum and cherry-like flavour, its unctuous palate is backed by sweet, fine-grained oak and framed by firm, tightly knit tannin. Finely balanced, it finishes long and savoury with a lingering core of persistent fruit and pleasing gamey qualities."

"A shy, delicate pinot that grows on you; a drinking rather than a tasting wine. High-toned strawberry, vanilla, cheery-brandy aromatics. Sweet ultra-ripe fruit to taste; very finely textured, restrained but intense. Classy Stuff."
Huon Hooke, Gormet Traveller 2007.
