Reviews

4 Stars Michael Cooper 
Deeply coloured, this wine is mouthfilling and supple, with generous, very ripe plum, spice and slight liquorice flavours. Fruit-packed, with some savoury complexity, it's an unabashedly bold style of Pinot Noir, already enjoyable but well worth cellaring.

        Weather Conditions: Spring and summer were hot and extremely dry, enhancing great flavours in our grapes. Rain set in just one week before harvest, making for anxious times. Luckily the fine weather returned for another 2 weeks – just long enough to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
