Expert Reviews

Wine Companion (2013 Vintage) says
Pretty as a picture but with enough weight of fruit to give an impression of substance. Lightish colour with morello cherry, ground spice and cedary oak notes rolling logically through. Combines sweetness and savouriness well, and wraps both in soft, velvety arms.

I tasted this earlier this year and liked it a lot; I like it even more now. It’s become more undergrowthy, more complex. It’s light in colour but awash with morello cherry and twiggy spice notes, a seasoning of sweet/cedary oak playing amicably with the wine’s strengths. It’s one of those pinots you just want to lap up. Complex drinkability.

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Never judge a pinot noir by its (lack of) colour is an old saying, never truer than here. While the colour is, if anything, even lighter than the Village, and the wine barely medium-bodied, it has beautiful focus, line and length to its assemblage of small red fruits backed by silky tannins and totally integrated French oak.

Light, bright red; lifted red cherry/berry fruit aromas, then a light-bodied palate with fresh red fruit flavours and silky tannins. Elegant light style.

Classic pinot noir bouquet, flavour and structure, the oak much less obvious than prior releases, fruit more to the front without sacrificing finesse. Outstanding value.
