Tomboy Hill Rebellion Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Sumptuous, assertive but rather unpolished, this powerfully structured pinot has a heady bouquet of iris and rose petals, blood plums and dark cherries backed by nuances of redcurrant and five spice. Underpinned by a firmish, drying spine of raw-edged tannins, it?s juicy and deeply ripened, with a good length of densely packed fruit that finishes without its customary freshness and focus.

A delicious everyday pinot with a heady, floral perfume of cherries, plums and fine-grained oak over nuances of earthiness and spice. Smooth and silky, with a fine, bony undercarriage beneath its sappy palate of juicy cherries and plums, it's long, refreshing and finely balanced.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
The label carries the subtitle 'Ballarat Goldfields' and the packing boxes feature a version of the Eureka flag ... we think. It looks that way to us. It's a light kind of wine but it doesn't lack strength. The essential paradox of good pinot noir. Excellent flavours of dried herbs and twigs, dark cherries and cinnamon. Lots of dry tannin. Pools of savoury spice. Very good length. Very good wine.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Pretty, minty and spicy, with rather sour-edged flavours dark cherries, plums and rhubarb over meaty nuances animal hide. It's scented with rose petals and marzipan but there's just a hint of a cooked and vegetal aspect at the culmination of its long, bony and slightly gritty palate. Should settle down.

Clean spice, plum and black cherry; clear-cut varietal character; light to medium-bodied; good structure and length, particularly natural acidity; 13.5° alcohol.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Powerful, classy and intense; spicy, savoury bouquet; sweeter pinot fruit on the palate, bordering luscious, but still fine and long; 13.7° alcohol.
