Silver Medal from MUNDUS VINI Great International Wine Awards 2014

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper
Deep and youthful in colour, it is weighty and supple, vibrant and sweet-fruited, with deep plum and spice flavours, concentrated, savoury and complex. Best 2015+.

4 Stars or 89/100 from Bob Campbell MW
Aromatic Pinot Noir with moderately intense plum, cherry and red berry flavours together with a seasoning of spices. The wine has a pleasingly smooth texture and a lengthy finish.

        • Weather Conditions:  A wet and cool spring reduced our crop levels considerably.  Summer was marked by high rainfall and incredible canopy growth.   Luckily a stunning Indian Summer followed, bringing along good ripeness and fantastic flavour development.
