Campbell Mattinson "Light and energetic and not a lot more. Cherry and twiggy-spice notes run busily through the palate, a (very) gentle bitterness appearing on the finish. Dry. Quaffable."

James Halliday "This vintage produced many full-flavoured pinots, this a very good example. Its colour is deep, the bouquet and palate focused around dark cherry fruit and attendant flecks of spice - a spice that will grow with time. The length, balance and varietal fruit expression are an excellent base for the future (and for now)." (2017 Vintage)
