94/100 – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

“A little lighter in colour than a few may be used to but don’t let this distract you. Aromas and flavours of a Pinot Noir with elegance and sophistication, red apple, skin, red charry and little starwberry and gentle oak spices and mild toasty qualities. Smooth, soft, gentle and elegant – isn’t that what PN is all about? Fine tannins, ediumacid line, balanced, ready. Best from today and through 2022.” – Cameron Douglas MS

“Showing wonderful maturity, the complex bouquet shows dark berry, game, leather, nutmeg and earthy mushroom characters. It is beautifully ripe and rounded on the palate, delivering layers of fine texture and rich savour characters, elegantly structured by polished tannins. A gorgeous partner to slow-cooked dishes.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

“Medium-full bodied, the palate has concentrated aromas of cherries, dried cranberries; savoury, game, smoke fills the palate, complexing nuances of dried thyme, black pepper, liquorice, old roses enriched senses. The palate is packed with secondary development; there is concentration and strength in the flavours, showing vitality. Balanced acidity flows on a fine-textured, silky palate; smoky black tea fragrance lingers to a long, satisfying finish. The intensity and strength will carry the wine further with development and enjoyment.” – Candice Chow

Tasting Note: A bouquet full of berry fruits, game, mushroom and dried herbs. Medium-full bodied, the palate has wonderfully rounded herb, berry and earthy mushroom flavours, held together by ripe fine grained tannins and finishes soft and smooth with a touch of spice
