Overview

2012 vintage was one of the best we’ve experienced. Ideal conditions persisted from veraison to harvest. Fruit was hand-picked in excellent condition, with high colour intensity and flavour expression.

Made with the same approach as the Reserve wine, this wine is produced from a different selection of fruit parcels and barrel combinations.

Expert Reviews

Bright and clear crimson-purple; the super-fragrant red berry bouquet flows into a seamless palate, medium-bodied in pinot terms, with a wholly seductive array of red and black cherry and plum fruits; fine tannins provide just the right amount of support on the admirably long palate. Rating 95 - Drink by 2022 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2013)

Cherry, almond, forest and spice aromas run on through the supple, gluggable palate. It’s light but persistent, soft and clean. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Epicure (11/MAR/2014)

Well, this is pretty spunky value then. Smells good. Tastes good. Light to medium bodied, red fruits, bright acidity and a clear sense of ‘minerality’ - you know, that kind of graphite feel that you get mocked for mentioning, by some. Fine tannin. Even flow. Length is pretty good. Seems a wine that has clarity and purpose, which is both admirable and allowable for a wine at this modest price point. 92 or 93 even? Rating 92 - 93 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (FEB/2014)

New livery and a big step up from the 2012 TarraWarra Estate Chardonnay. This is a Pinot that deserves to be on your radar, especially given the price.Raspberry, tree bark, sour cherry, sap, cedar and toasted spice with a hint of plum. Supple tannin, vibrant acidity, good depth of flavour. True Pinosity, excellent architecture. Touch and go for another point. Rating 92 - Jeremy PRingle Wine Will Eat Itself (FEB/2014)
