"I like the complexity of the Tasmania blend, the whole greater than the sum of its parts kind of thing." Gary Walsh
MV6, 777 and 115 clones, 60% from the Derwent Valley, 30% East Coast and 10% Tamar Valley. The bouquet is multifaceted, with no single message from the single vineyard group, the palate moving onto another tier, but carries with it the higher-toned red fruits of clone 115 (compared to MV6 last year). It also achieves a lightness of touch without any sacrifice of line or length. This is the serious business of enjoyment, not the science of dissecting small pieces of a large puzzle. Rating: 97 points. James Halliday
"Spicy, nutty, smoky thing, but the cherry and red fruit rises above, and there’s maybe a bit of a cracked wheat thing going on here too, and some rose petal. It’s light to medium-bodied, almost chewy in a way, though certainly you might call it ‘sinewy’, smoked meat, stalks and spice, ‘minerally’ acidity, and a long finish that offers grip, spice and sour cherry as it moves down the throat. It’a what you might call a very ‘adult’ style of Pinot Noir, but also very good. Rating: 95 Points." Gary Walsh. The Winefront.
