Gembrook Hill Mayer Vineyard Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright, light crimson; the bouquet is complex and exotic, with plum and spice aromas, the palate following closely behind; long and intense, it has a mix of red fruits and a strong, foresty background.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
This offers a slightly more earthy nose than the standard Gembrook, sourced from winemaker Timo Mayer's vineyard. It's simpler and more succinct on the palate, a great early-drinking style thanks to neat balance and smoothly sheeted tannin.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
The winemaking skills that go into this wine are second to none. It's a great introduction to the Gembrook Hill's way with pinot noir. Affordable character. Has a soft entry but then gets rugged through the finish. Gets prettier and prettier the longer it rests in the glass. It has notes of strawberry and toast and a gentle earthy reduction. Will drink beautifully over the medium term. That 'ruggedness' on the finish becomes velvety and plush with air - a very nice drinking pinot.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light, bright purple-red; light- to medium-bodied cherry, raspberry and plum; quite firm mouthfeel.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
A very well made and stylish pinot. While it could use a little more ripeness and stuffing, It's likely to build in colour, structure and intensity with time in the bottle. There's a hint of dried herbs beneath its aromas of rose petals, raspberries and red cherries, while its palate is fine and silky, with a pleasing sappiness. Sweet red berry/cherry fruit with undertones of mint and menthol are supported by a genuine structure of firmish and slightly drying tannins.
Australian Wine Annual 2007 2006
James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Scented, spicy, stemmy aromas; intense, almost biting palate; long finish; needs time.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Deep colour, good hue; very intense aromas and flavours; dark plum and spice; sweet core and savoury fringes.
