"Yet another beautiful Tasmanian pinot attesting to the great vintage." James Halliday
"a wine of structure and latent potential" Gary Walsh
"96 Points. Hand-picked from a 0.6ha estate block, 55% whole bunches, 45% destemmed, cold-soaked for 7 days, wild yeast-fermented, matured in French barriques (30% new), the only addition SO2. Clear, vivid crimson-purple, it leaps from the glass with its perfumed red and blue fruits, then captures the palate in a split second with its array of those fruits on the one side, spicy, savoury tannins ex the whole bunches on the other. Yet another beautiful Tasmanian pinot attesting to the great vintage. Drink by: 2027 Date tasted: 09/Sep/2016 Price: $50.00 Alcohol: 13% - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"94+ Points. Spice, rose petals and vanilla, plum and red fruit, some clean earthiness. Medium bodied, firm grainy tannin and fresh strawberry tang, a bit sappy, but dynamic and packed with red fruits and plum. It’s pretty coiled up and tense as a young wine. Relax, take a load off! Emery tannin and firm acid on a long finish, and again the roses and spice. Tasted a day later, and it looked better, but still pretty frisky and unevolved. It might best be described as a wine of structure and latent potential. Tasted: Sep16 Alcohol: 13% Price: $55 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2035 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
