This wine is burgundy in colour and the aroma offers a gamey note with hints of spice and sweet red cherry.  It has excellent complexity and great length with silky tannins. Its incredible show results would suggest that it is one of our best ever Pinot Noir vintages.

94/100 Points – USA Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2018

Out of 23,000 wines this score represents the highest ever achieved by an Australian Pinot Noir – “Dark maroon in the glass, with hints of copper, this wine’s aromas are unmistakably enticing. The multilayered nose smells of mulberry, damp underbrush and well-worn leather. The palate intensifies those notes and adds dried rose petal and beef bouillon. With vibrant acidity, pleasantly tugging tannins and a noticeably, yet pleasantly, dry finish, this is a table-worthy, thought-provoking Pinot Noir that would take well to cellaring. The impressively long finish is the sort of denouement Pinotphiles pine for. Drink now–2024.” — Published USA Wine Enthusiast (1/31/2018)
