Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Warm, fresh strawberries and cream, and the spoon, waiting… On the palate, this is elegant, smooth, urbane and long. Everything is perfectly proportioned; the oak is well integrated. Just a little bit quiet and calm and sorted; a slight lack of excitement to it. But once again this is to be picky with what is an exceptionally well-crafted wine.

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Quite taught on the fruit, this wine needs to age. Clean cut flavours, still evolving, delicate nuances of violets and soft cherries.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Intense and pronounced nose with notes of dark berry fruit and vanilla oak. Structured and juicy on the palate with lovely integrated oak and a long aftertaste.
