''It?s a tangy pinot noir but the mouthfeel is silken and the fruit ? even with the low alcohol ? is ripe and substantial-enough. Red cherry, cranberry, a touch of plum, a veneer of smoky/cedary oak. Spice notes are not in short supply. Stems splashed with pepper. It all works well. '' 92 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
''An impressive Pinot, which will soar higher if given time. Foresty whole-bunch nuances with fresh nut, spice and almond meal notes leading to a full-bodied palate with high extract; its lush fruit balanced by lavish tannins. The length is prodigious.'' 97 Point, Gourmet Traveller
On the nose blackcurrant/ cassis and herbal notes intertwined with delicate whiffs of char (from the oak barrels). On the palate blackcurrant and blackberry over powdery tannins, spice and tar. This wine has great length and structure where the fruit more than matches the fine tannin structure.
2015 was a wonderful vintage for this address with superb ripeness. It's packed with fleshy, floral-noted, purple fruit aromas and flavours and finishes with crunchy freshness and mouth-filling perfume. Just what you want from this type of thirst-quencher.
The 2014 season in Heathcote provided exceptionally high quality fruit from the 15 year old Colbinabbin vineyard. The wine has vivid raspberry and red and black cherry aromas with some graphite and earthy characters as well as very subtle spices. The palate is fresh and supple with very good intensity, weight and length. It is quite complex and will certainly become more so. Currently the 2005 and 2006 are just approaching their very best and this wine will also improve well for five years at least. It is a wine that certainly has a foot in two camps owing to its style of deliciously medium weight Shiraz whilst also having Pinot lovers' fragrance and elegance
This dry and very light rose is made from delicious Pinot Noir with a touch of Shiraz. It's bone dry, has some lovely texture and exhibits the delightful strawberries and cream from the Pinot Noir and lifted dark cherry fruit and spices on the palate from the Shiraz component.
