“Terrific vintage for Pinot in the Yarra Valley.
Forest berries, spice, a touch of earth and vanilla perfume. It’s ripe and sweetly fruited with a lovely set of powder fine silky tannin, but shows a little too much warmth through the finish. Seductive style of wine that’s going to hit the P spot of many a drinker. May have a trick up its sleeve with a little more bottle age, but pretty much good to go. “
Then it popped up in The Age’s ‘Epicure’ section:
“A single-vineyard pinot from a strong vintage in the Yarra Valley with sweet, juicy fruit to the fore: dusty beetroot, black tea, stewed cherries. Warm in the mouth with a generous, fine tannin smoothness.”
And finally, it made an appearance in today’s Canberra Times, as Chris Shanahan’s ‘Wine of the Week’:
“When they established the vineyard, the owners paid great attention to matching grape varieties to soil types and microclimates – successfully, judging by this wine. There’s a floral high note over the ripe, cherry-like varietal aroma. The cherry character follows through on a ripe, juicy palate, with earthy savoury undertones and firm but velvety tannins.”
It’s always nice to get a bit of validation in the form of good reviews! If you’d like to try our Pinot Noir for yourself, it’s available through our online wine shop.
