Halliday Wine Companion Awards - Top Rated Pinot Noir 2019
97 Points - James Halliday - Bright, clear crimson; this is right up there with the best of the best from a great Tasmanian vintage, sharing the alluring, perfumed fruits and the integrity of high quality tannins proficing the structure for a long future. There is a purity to the red and black cherry/berry fruits that shines through the portals of the savoury/spicy tannins. A luminous future will richly repay those who are patient.
97 Gold Points - Bright, clear crimson; a very complex bouquet with perfumed and alluring fruits, charcuterie and red flowers, reflecting whole berry/whole bunch vinification. Amazing power and length to the palate, the spicy tannins pure class. Wow.
An extraordinary wine from one of the most perfect growing seasons, this has seen 100% malolactic fermentation, and the way in which the acidity is set into the wine is stunning. The nose has a good serving of toasty hazelnuts and spicy oak, but the bright grapefruit and white-peach fruits take centre stage. Flinty and complex. The palate is cast around a central core of intense, commanding acidity, while peach-custard and lemon-curd flavors hold super long. The acidity pins the finish in place. Stunning concentration and balance. Elegant and powerful. Drink on release in 2017 and for 5+ years.
