An elegant and supple wine that shows remarkable power, intensity and length on the palate. Framed by ripe, moderate tannin the graceful strawberry fruit is complemented but not dominated by spice. The wine demonstrates a wonderful poise and balance with remarkable length of flavour as all great Pinot Noirs should.
Pair with masterstock duck.
In sound cellaring conditions this wine should develop well over the next 5-10 years.

94 Points Halliday Rating - Dave Brookes 2023 - "The Derwent and Coal River valleys provide the fruit source for this year's release, which shows bright, lively wild strawberry, raspberry and dark cherry fruit tones with hints of exotic spice, sous bois, shiitake broth, roasting game and earth. Impressive fruit intensity on the palate, plenty of minerally drive and gentle chalky tannins that show more muscle as the wine fades away, pure of fruit and long."
