Poached strawberries and fresh mint, floral and spicy. Medium bodied, sweet and strawberried, some cherry, clean acidity lends coolness, tannin rumbles below – like a bedrock of shale – then a plumply fruited, yet fresh finish. Delicious, if not a bit obvious as a youngster. Rating: 94 Points; Drink: 2016-2023; Price: $70; Date Tasted: April 2015; Alcohol: 13.5%; Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
Bright, clear crimson-purple; an elegant, sophisticated pinot noir embracing the full spectrum of Yarra Valley pinot aromas and flavours on its highly fragrant bouquet and palate; the juicy red and black cherry fruits are framed by fine, but persistent, savoury tannins on the lingering finish.
