2016 PINOT NOIR        

Halliday Wine Companion, 2019 Edition

MV6, hand-picked, destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented, matured for 10 months in French barriques (10% new). Light, clear red-purple; bright, fresh red fruits on the fragrant bouquet and palate alike; light to medium-bodied; has good length and mouthfeel. Excellent value. Rating 94. Drink to 2029.

STUART ROBINSON, VINSOMNIAC, July 2018

It's a pleasure to stick the olfactory organ into the glass with this. As per previous reviews, it's really about the primacy of fruit, square and centre: sour cherry, blackberry, a suggestion of wild strawberry - all with this underlying savoury bent.
The palate is gorgeously mid-weight, meshing together bright and juicy fruit, a little prickle of acidity to alert the senses further. Fine tannin adds another dimension. Good drinking.
