Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Rather vague and unfocussed aromatically, but attractive nonetheless: sweet, enticing. Vivid, lively, tangy, fresh; mouth-coating fruits, but (as with the aromas) not quite pristine in its delivery. Nonetheless this would be highly enjoyable to drink.

Roger Jones

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Raspberry and cranberry smoothie on nose, very deep penetrating berry fruit hit. Evolves in the mouth, giving a lovely texture with some cedar box nuances.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Spicy, elegant and complex, with rhubarb character and notes of vanilla oak. Elegant structure and complex on the palate with juicy texture, and a long raspberry and mint aftertaste.
