97 Points - James Halliday
This is the standard-bearer for Hoddles Creek's estate-grown pinot noirs. Bright crimson-purple hue of moderate depth; the perfumed bouquet has spice, hints of violets (unexpected so soon, but don't complain), cherry and plum, a gathering replayed on the stage of the palate which is wonderfully long.
96 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Winefront
It’s a light, elegant wine, sinewy is the word, though it has the kind of insistence that would win it an election. This is a peacock’s tail of a wine if there ever was one, all the forces marshalled in order through the mainstay off the palate before launching the real and decisive attack through the finish. Drinking it is like watching the launch of a satellite, to keep the metaphors rolling; you count down through the palate and then watch it boom. Let’s just say, it has cashed in on the excellence of the vintage, and is remarkable both for its quality and for its value.
