This highly regarded second label from Wooing Tree gives many $40 Pinots a run for their money. Full of the sun-baked brightness and perfume that Central does so well with a silky, juicy palate balanced by a backbone of freshness and fine tannins. Superb quality year in year out makes this arguably the best Central Pinot for the price.

What The Critics Say

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"Designed for early enjoyment, this single-vineyard Cromwell red is hand-picked and matured for eight or nine months in French oak casks. The 2017 vintage (4.5*) is deeply coloured, with fresh, plummy, slightly spicy aromas. Full-bodied and fruit-packed, it is sweet-fruited and supple, in a 'full-on' style with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours. Offering good value, it's already delicious."

18.5+/20 Raymond Chan

"Full, very dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is very fresh and aromatically vibrant with bright, primary fruit aromas of dark-red berry and blackberry fruit, along with black plums, harmoniously intermixed with fragrant violet florals, soft nuances of dark herbs, unfolding suggestions of whole berry fermentation jam notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses rich and plush, accessible fruit flavours of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits, along with black plums and jam, lifted by violet florals. The fruit is sweet and juicy, very primary in expression, and is supported by supple, fine-grained tannin extraction, with balanced acidity. The flavours carry with plenty of energy to a juicy and luscious finish. Match with pasta, pizza, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 6, 667, 777 and 115, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 24% new French oak. 18.5+/20 Apr 2018 RRP $28.00." Drink 2018 - 2023
