What The Critics Say

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Delicious pinot noir with cassis, dark berry, plum, spice and anise flavours that are flattered by spick oak. The wine has an ethereal texture and power that's delivered with subtlety. Dangerously accessible now but no rush. 25 MAR 2020." Drink 2020 - 2025

5 Stars Michael Cooper

"Certified organic, the impressive 2018 vintage was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Lowburn, matured for a year in French oak casks (20 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deeply coloured, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with concentrated, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity and a finely structured finish. A very ageworthy red, it should be at its best 2022+."

95/100 Jamie Goode (2017 vintage)

"This is from all over the old vines block. Beautiful aromatics: floral and enticing with sweet black cherries and some spice, with just a hint of nice reduction. The palate is elegant but structured with lovely black fruits character. Black cherries, spice, plums. It has some juiciness and forward fruit, but lovely elegance and purity and real drive. Serious stuff, but also quite approachable. The fruit is so linear and pure, the reduction gives nice edges."
