Complex and subtle, deep purple/red in colour. This wine has blackcurrant and mulberry aromas with medium body and a long finish. Perfect with roast beef or steak. You can drink now or should benefit from 3 to 5 years cellaring. Stephen Read.
Lush and rich in appearance with deep red glossy hues. A well balanced nose immediately presents with delightful cherry and smoky French oak overtones. The palate is full of texture with fruity intensity and arid tannins dominating. Drinking well now for a wonderful dinner with family and friends. Greg Swift.
Fresh, crisp and aromatic with zesty fruit flavours, herbaceous with hints of lime, gooseberry and pears. Fantastic for summer with oysters or other seafood. Drink and enjoy now. Stephen Read.
Light straw colour greets you followed by a nose vibrantly illustrated with lime, lemon and fresh berries. The palate shows a youthful exuberance to be enjoyed now and is dominated by tropical fruits and a hint of pear. Greg Swift.
One of the toastiest sparkling wines I have tried in ages, toast on the nose and palate, full of savoury character (toast and vegemite? Maybe) it’s an individual style and one I love but it may be strong for others. It’s a special release and one I hope we see more of, 96 points and at under $40 a great price. Tony Keys.
Highly spiced perfume nose, spice across the palate as well it’s an attractive wine if not what I consider those characters to be pinot noir. It also worked much better at the table 92 points hefty price at $35. Tony Keys.
Broad and somewhat bland, it’s OK but it’s just a glass of wine at the end of the day, 91 points the price is not outrages at $26 but there are other wines around in the same bracket offering better value, but then one has to consider the pinot noir premium. Tony Keys.
A good all-rounder, not ringing bells but very sound, 93 points OK price at $30. Tony Keys.
Smelly classic nose light in style but enough going on to make it stand above others and the return journey is wonderful as is the perfume 95 points and worth its $3. Tony Keys.
Not a great pinot nose but good pinot noir characters across the palate, serve chilled 93 points and good price at $18. Tony Keys.
