The 2010 Pinot Noir is intense and typical of our Bendigo Estate Vineyard. Concentrated with sweet red and black berry fruits, spice with a silky texture and fine grained tannins.

The style has really evolved handsomely for Quartz Reef, marrying the right amount of weight and richness with elegant structure and complex, whole-bunch-derived fragrance and shape. This has plenty of ripe plum and cherry, bright purple musky fragrance, swirling spice and plenty of sweet, fragrant allure. The palate’s phenomenal, with really concentrated and tightly wound fruits making a sturdy, structured and concentrated pinot that has a happy life ahead.
Rating 96 - Nick Stock: Good Wine Guide 2012
Impressively perfumed wine with strong cherry and floral characters plus a hint of spice. Elegant wine with subtle power evidenced by a lengthy finish. Impressive purity and drive.
