PRESS: Sam Kim - 95 points. 'What a fabulous Pinot. Deeply scented and immensely delicious, this complex wine shows black cherry, plum, floral and nuances of game, spice and cedar characters on the nose. The palate is concentrated and richly fruited, offering an abundance of lovely flavours and layers silky texture. It is beautifully styled and exhibits elegant opulence. At its best: now to 2022.'

The nose and palate are marked by berry fruit characteristics from the Bendigo fruit, cherry and herbal notes from Bannockburn, and floral characteristics from the Gibbston fruit. The result is a fairly opulent wine that is drinking very well now.
