What The Critics Say
4.5 Stars Michael Cooper
"A regional classic. The 2015 vintage (4.5*) was also matured for a year in French oak barrels (20 per cent new). A finely textured, savoury red, it is full-bodied, with fresh, ripe cherry, plum, spice, dried herb and nut flavours, revealing good complexity, and obvious cellaring potential; open 2019+. Certified organic."
95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2014 vintage)
"Fleshy, fruit bomb pinot noir with lush plum and dark cherry flavours plus a subtle seasoning of spicy oak. A silken-textured wine with that’s deliciously drinkable now. The best Carrick Pinot Noir I’ve tasted for some time. 17/1/2017" Drink 2017 - 2022
16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com (2014 vintage)
"Bright cherry red. Spiced and not particularly sweet-fruited though there's definitely an intensity of fruit in the aroma. Juicy red cherries and plums and a nice chewy texture, rounded out on the finish. Spicy and fresh on the finish and with a mineral and more savoury quality that seems to increase the length. Succulent texture. Fermented in small open-top fermenters, and typically has a 5-day pre-ferment cold soak, with punch downs throughout fermentation, then 5-7 days extended maceration. Fermentation occurs with ambient yeast and the wine is matured for 14 months in French oak, of which about 20% is new. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the spring - lots are then selected and blended before bottling without fining or filtration. (JH)" Drink 2017 - 2024
