Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Very good colour; the fragrant bouquet has a mix of red and black fruits that flow into the supple and long palate; here notes of spice and oak join the red cherry and plum fruit, with fine-grained tannins and quality (but restrained) oak.

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Dusty, floral and faintly herbal aromas of dark cherries, bramble and creamy vanilla oak backed by nuances of underbrush and menthol precede a long, supple and elegant palate. It?s faintly confectionary, but there?s pleasing presence, length and depth to its bright cherry/berry flavours and fine willowy tannins. It should flesh out with time in the bottle.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Deliciously spicy, vibrant and varietal, with a fresh perfume of raspberries, cherries and dusty cedar/vanilla oak lifted by the scent of red and blue flowers and a whiff of cola. It's smooth, supple, elegant and juicy, with a silky undercarriage beneath its pleasing, but youthfully restrained fruit and assertive oak. Likely to flesh out handsomely, and next time around my score might be a little higher still.

This has fairly stiff competition around the $40 price mark. Not a problem though - this will hold its own with complex and fragrant pinot fruit and spice aromas, and the oak's parked nice and straight. The palate delivers supple red fruit flavour and silty tannins, then look out for the finish - it really drives deep and rich. Superb!

Good hue and depth; has the aroma, structure, texture and length of quality pinot noir; dark plum fruits on the mid-palate flow through to a gently savoury and long finish sustained by fine tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Reminiscent of an Oregon pinot, with attractive depth and weight of plump, juicy varietal fruit. Scented with rose petals, sweet cherries and berries, it opens up a smooth, creamy, ripe and juicy palate whose plump fruit and lightly smoky mocha/chocolate oak knit tightly with a structure of firmish pliant tannins.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
There is impressive balance on show here, making this a wine that is ready to get into right away. A honed and focused palate is built around red cherry blossom and red berry fruits with hints of mixed spice. Finely structured tannins are already well integrated and will sustain it for the medium-term.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
St Huberts pinot noir tends to be at the beefier, dry-red end of the pinot noir spectrum, but this release is brighter ... and better. Bright, clear colour. It looks inviting and smells and tastes excellent too. Lots of red berries, chocolate and spice and it has an earthy mineral finish. One of those wines that just feels right in your mouth. It has freshness and silkiness and persistence, all of which mark it as a quality wine. Good tannin too. We're impressed.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
An uninhibited successor to the trophy-winning '06 makes a bold statement, but perhaps without the same depth of mid-palate plum fruit; has good balance

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Deep colour; a very complex and powerful wine with ripe black cherry and plum fruit; arresting show style with multiple trophies and gold medals, but needs time.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Feted by the wine show circuit, this smells of smoothly raked earth and wet forest floor, a classic savoury pinot with fragrant sweet fruit lift and spicy oak. The palate's balanced from the outset and carries impressive fruit weight, fresh and vibrant, toasty oak runs through the finish with a brush of tannin to close.

Solid, strong dark plum fruit with savoury undertones. Will improve.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Striking medium to full red-purple; the bouquet has concentrated, ripe blood plum fruit, the palate in powerful, full-on style; masses of extract, and will have particular appeal to those who enjoy full-bodied Pinots.
