5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2020
By Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Offering lovely fruit purity with spicy nuances, this delectably styled pinot shows dark berry, thyme, roasted nut, dark mushroom and game characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted and rounded palate that's silky and lingering. It's generous yet refined with gorgeous complexity, finishing long and satisfying.
Excellent - Cameron Douglas, Master Somelier 2020
By Cameron Douglas MS
Very attractive bouquet with aromas of sweet red rose and black cherry, raspberry and gentle baking scent of vanilla and clove. There’s a touch of bacon wood aroma adding complexity and intrigue. Youthful, fresh and vibrant overall. Fruity, varietal, complex and dry on the palate. Flavours of vanilla laced red berry fruits, dark red apple skin, cherry and baked raspberry flavours. Firm tannins and medium+ acidity add in a youthful tension, both contrasted by the core of fruit. Lengthy persistent finish, well made and ready to enjoy from late 2021 through 2027+.
