Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Light crimson; the fragrant, red berry aromas lead into an intense, elegant and very long palate, juicy fruit interwoven with satin tannins.  Seriously lovely pinot.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
A pinot that commands respect in both time in the cellar and a decent decant, there's plenty of support here from well-structured oak, lifting concentrated black cherry and black plum fruits.

A ripe and concentrated pinot noir that offers a dark cherry and plum fruit nose, with plenty of honey and spice too. The palate s rich and dense, tannin flows solidly through with dark cherry fruit flavour, and acid lifts the finish.

As good as it gets: rich alluring and complex with sweet spicy fruit aromas while the palate is complex with juicy fruit flavours and richly endowed with soft powdery tannins. In 2010 a vibrant colour and subtle raspberry cherry fruit with a shortbread o

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Deep, heady, musky aromas of rose petals, iris, five spice and briary notes of red cherries and berries knit tightly with faintly gemey newish oak, reveal dusty, faintly meaty undertones. Long and supple, with a smooth, silky texture, its elegant, transulcent presence of restrained but mouthfilling red cherries, berries and dark plums is deftly knit with dusty, savoury oak, building towards a crescendo of intense flavour and a lingering, soft and spicy finish.

A lovely young pinot; aromatic and spicy, with fine tannins and tremendous length.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
A pure, tightly focused and evenly measured pinot with a floral perfume of rose petals, red cherries and dust;/ undertones of musky spices. Smooth and generous, its refined and silky palate of cherry/berry fruit and tightly integrated savoury oak is charmingly succulent and fleshy, with a fine-grained undercarriage and a pleasingly savoury, long and brightly lit finish.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
This flagship shows fine spicy fragrance and bright lifted fruit aromas; a young, brash and straightforward pinot with broad appeal and plenty of savoury oak complexity. The palate's supple and ripe, carrying cherry/berry flavours that roll smoothly through, light and easy, finishing with musky fragrant lift.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Rich, deep, profound black fruits and spice; another dimension above the varietal version; velvety mouthfeel and balance.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
A flavour some and complex pinot perfumed with sweet oak and spicy slightly confectionary red cherries and plums, with gamey under tones of undergrowth and sage. Sappy and juicy It's smooth, silky and refined, delivering a willowy palate whose sweet cherry/plum fruit and smoky cedary oak reveals just a hint of under/over ripe influences.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Lightly perfumed, fragrant and minty aromas of maraschino cherries, raspberries and plums over dusty nuances of cedary oak and earthy under-tones. Lean and tight, but intensely flavoured, the firm and fine-grained palate offers texture and weight, but reveals an undercurrent of vegetal influences likely to evolve into tobaccoey complexity.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Complex and intense; plum, sous bois and French oak; a powerful palate, paradoxically without the same length as the varietal.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Bright red-purple; aromatic smoky/charry oak and some whole bunch/stalk aromas foreshadow an intense, complex, foresty, tangy palate in Burgundian mould, and representing a very definite statement by the winemaker Tom Carson. The only residual doubt is over the level of oak, which pushes the envelope.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Intense, dark purple-red; there is concentrated plum and briar fruit on the bouquet with some foresty underlay. An extremely powerful and concentrated wine on the palate with plummy fruit and reasonably substantial tannins. Will be very long-lived for a Pinot Noir.
