Region: Geelong
Grapes: Pinot Noir
First Glance: Wild Strawberry, Undergrowth, Fine Tannin, Spice
Acclaim: 95pts

The Wine:
Hand-picked fruit from each block fermented separately. Twenty per cent whole bunches and a small portion of carbonic was used. The wine was then pressed to a combination of hogsheads and puncheons (20% new) for a ten-month élevage before blending.

The Review:
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 95pts
“This is excellent. Fine, tight, intricate, wild and precise at once. Not exactly sure how they do that but here it is, they have. Cherries, meat, soy, strawberries, twiggy spice, some volatility, a fine web of tannin, some beet characters, some undergrowth. So much going on within an overall impression of control. Mightily impressed.”
