First vintage from the estate’s cool climate fruit. Very lightly coloured Pinot with a lovely floral nose, probably due to the 50% whole bunch ferment. This is well supported by red cherry and redcurrant fruits. Nicely balanced palate with fruit, acid and silky, velvet smooth tannins combining seamlessly. Middle palate toasty oak provides more texture and length to the wine. Overall a wine with poise and elegance.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
