Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Fractionally brighter, although no deeper colour than Bel Sel; less spicy, and with more red fruits; the tannins are of gossamer weight, and in each case care has been taken not to use much oak.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Clear red, a fraction advanced; has deeper fruit and more complexity than Bel Sel, mixing some black cherry with the red notes; has a silky mouthfeel and pure finish. A shadow over all three Pinots is a slight lack of drive through to the finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Deep, bright colour tinges of crimson-purple; here the depth of the plum and black cherry fruit needs less elaboration; has excellent balance, and just the right amount of oak and tannin support

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Very good colour; has plenty of attitude to its firmly structured plum and cherry fruit; long finish; built to age.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Spotlessly pure plum and black cherry fruit; supple mouthfeel although a slightly firm finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Intense, high-toned savoury, spicy, foresty aromas and flavours; fine and long; has finesse.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red, the purple starting to fade; a wonderfully complex sappy, spicy, savoury, distinctly Burgundian bouquet feeds directly into the palate, with a scintillating array of the same characters, long savoury and foresty, but not the least bitter. The yield 1.5 tonnes to the acre; 500 cases made.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium red-purple; a fragrant, spicy, savoury, tangy bouquet is followed by a similarly intense tangy, sappy, savoury palate with fine tannins and very good length. In consistent style for the winery, with strongly Burgundian overtones.
