REVIEWS & RATINGS
93 points, Halliday Wine Companion 4th April 2018, 5 to Try – Pinot Noir - "Estate-grown, open-fermented in small pots, matured in new and used French barriques for 11 months. There's no doubting its cool grown origins, the bouquet perfumed by red flowers and fruits, the palate an encore bringing in drums to tattoo the spicy/savoury notes”. www.winecompanion.com.au
Winestate Magazine, Annual Edition 2018 Best Wines of 2017 - Pinot Noir under $25 - 5 Stars, A smart well-made wine with jammy sweet berry aromas showing subtle spiciness. Medium-bodied palate has ripe black and red fruit flavours with well-handled oak to balance.
