Expert Reviews

95 Points - Huon HookeDeep, bright red/purple colour. Vanillan and faintly stewed aromas, the palate soft and pillowy, round and supple, with gentle tannins and good amplitude. Vibrant acidity contributes to a lively, long finish. A lovely wine with energy to burn. Great value for money
95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionHand-picked predominantly from the Derwent Valley and East Coast of Tasmania, and has the excellent colour expected of Tasmanian pinots. The power and depth of the bouquet and palate are likewise right in the centre of varietal expression with a seamless fusion of cherries and plums of all kinds, oak submerged, tannins so silky they are lost in the folds of the fruit, but are there. Has been amassing gold medals and trophies.
91 Points - Jeremy OliverPristine, floral and faintly minty, with luscious red cherries, blueberries and a hint of smoked bacon and fine, supple backbone.

How's it taste?

One of the hardest of all grape varietals to make, this wine displays all the hallmarks of great Pinot Noir. A soft perfumed aroma of strawberries and cream with a touch of spice that continues onto the palate finishing soft and silky with lingering red berry and spice.
