Expert Reviews

Pinot Noir is a versatile red wine because it relies more on acidity than tannin (it's tannins that clash with the oil in fish). This voluptuous, fragrant pinot will handle a piece of barbecued salmon just as well as a fancy duck dish. Greg Duncan Powell Grazia 3 Aug-09

4 Stars. From Giants Steps in the Yarra Valley. Innocent Bystander is its casual drink-now label. This has foresty pinot aromas with plum and strawberry fruit, an easy palate that's refreshing, finishing lightly grippy. Ralph Kyte Powell Epicure - The AGE 22 Jul-09

92 Points. Really bright colour and lovely vibrant fruit; young, juicy and lots of fun with a touch of spice playing support to delicious cherry fruit; certainly a wine to be enjoyed and not necessarily in moderation. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

90 Points / Top 100 Wine $20 or Less / Top 10 Pinot Noir $25 or Less full of delicious rose-like aromas perched atop bright flavours of cherry, strawberry and toast. Lots of grapey tannin and good balance. Will be excellent in time. Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010 May-09
