Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Slightly sweaty nose. Vivid palate but no great width of fruit and that sweatiness mitigates the pleasure of the fruit on the palate, too.

Roger Jones

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Cherry on nose, lovely aromas of sweet oak, very clean then goes into a silky, long, lingering palate which oozes with fresh berries, try it with Peking duck.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Aromatic and perfumed with bright strawberry fruit character on the nose. Juicy and complex on the palate with good acidity and long elegant aftertaste.
