Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Quite a stoic style to this reserve bottling of pinot noir. The nose has impressive complexity that s all nicely integrated, some dark cherry fruits, earth, smoky, meaty notes and anise-scented spice. The palate carries clear smoky flavour amid dark cherry and berry fruit flavours; nice enough, but just wanting for definition and purity.

A fine, savoury pinot, with a voluminous, complex, slightly wild and meaty bouquet of small berries, cherries, smoky cedary oak and dried herbs. It?s vibrant elegant and evenly ripened, long and stylish with pristine, concentrated small cherry/berry fruit and bacony oak supported by fine, powdery tannins, finishing with balance and length.

Dense savoury/smoky nose and a very long, very complex, savoury palate with firm tannins.

A deeply coloured, rich and brooding pinot noir that has plenty of baking spices and glossy meat oak on the nose, some dark cherries, rich deep fruits, boysenberries, cherries, strawberries and more. Very fresh. The palate's lithe and juicy, the oak's settling in and starting to knit with smooth ripe fruits, and there's dark-cherry flavours and flowing, even fruit. Rich, hearty and convincing pinot that will be best in a few years.

A spicy, faintly jammy bouquet of sweet redcurrants, thyme and fresh fine-grained oak precedes a long, supple and intensely flavoured palate. Underpinned by a tight-knit, dusty spine, its brightly lit presence of small red and black berry flavours extends long towards a lean, fresh and lingering finish. A finely poised and balanced wine.

Really superb Tasmanian pinot here: some red fruits, dark cherries, leafy foresty complexity, peppery berries, rasrpberries and spice. The palate's smartly cut, with bright acid keeping fruit juicy and trim throughout: dark-berry and red-fruit flavours, sturdy, well-shaped tannins, and a long cherry-flavoured finish.

With a label that looks like it's been inspired by old-school banknotes, you'll expect to pay almost double for this reserve bottling. The nose has terrific integration - quite smoky and liquorice-scented. The palate carries the same suspicious smoky flavour; otherwise, a lovely balanced wine. The regular '08 is a much better buy.
