Sleek, elegant pinot with strong, sweet fruit that has a subtle, floral, wild herb and nutty oak undercurrent and ripe, fine tannins. Powerful, linear wine with lovely flavour length.Rating 95 - Bob Campbell MW, Australian Gourmet Traveller (01/JUL/2011)
Full-coloured, with spice and dried herb flavours showing sweet fruit and good, savoury complexity, but two judges also described it as “forward”. The third found it “a little disjointed, but rich, powerful. Rating 3.5 Stars - Michael Cooper, Simon Nunns & Corey Hall, Winestate Magazine (01/JUN/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
In its youth the nose shows black cherry, dark chocolate and Asian spice notes that will typically change to savoury, earthy characters as the wine ages.
A rich, concentrated and elegant Pinot Noir with supple savoury tannins.On the palate the layers of dark fruits are beautifully entwined with soft, velvet tannins and a seamless texture. This wine exhibits power and poise.
This wine will age gracefully for 10+ years.
