Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Heavily worked and rustic, with a minty, musky and spicy bouquet of dark cherries and plums backed by meaty suggestions of barnyard, dried herbs and lanolin. Smooth and supple, its evolved and funky palate of small dark cherries and berries, menthol and meaty complexity finishes wild and savoury.

This wine has a lovely fragrance, with some bright red fruits. There s a sense of craftsmanship at work here, as well as a brightness and freshness, some spicy oak chiming in. There s strawberries and red cherry fruits on the palate, more spice and wild red fruits; the oak is all nicely settled into stride. Tannins are nicely crafted and even, and there s steely acidity here, really smooth and supple. This has real potential to deliver and is still very taut.

Forward and rather exaggerated, with a faintly varnishy bouquet of red cherries, redcurrants and tomato stalk, polished and rather resinous cedar/vanilla oak plus a hint of rose petal. It's plush, juicy and concentrated, with a forward, upfront sweetness that dries out towards a lean, rather smoky and sappy finish that lacks genuine freshness and punchiness of fruit.

Complex, minty/chocolate bouquet and lovely silky-textured palate with excellent concentration of sweet varietal fruit and good acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Supple and elegant, this restrained, faintly meaty and autumnal pinot reveals rather a closed, earthy bouquet whose scents of dark cherries, beetroot and rhubarb are backed by dusty, faintly greenish elements of dried herbs. Supported by dusty, fine tannins, its long and seamless an intense, but slightly shy presence of dark cherries and plums, finishing with fresh acids, gamey notes and a light herbaceousness. Likely to build in the bottle with time.

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
Still in the brooding style that we've seen in the last few years, this has a dark, nutty oak sheen, wet, earthy aromas and a riper set of fruit characters on offer: dark cherries and berries, plums, and rich, spicy complexity. The palate's quite chewy, bright yet full-bodied and rich - very ripe. This has a wealth of smooth, ripe tannin that will carry it forward.
