Crimson, with brick red hue. This wine has an open, rich nose, redolent of the warm 2018 vintage. Cola nut, liquorice and warm leather aromas intermix with the ripe black cherry fruit of Bannockburn. Classic wild thyme is also present. The palate has lovely plushness and silky tannins to match with the fruit. There are also hints of earth and truffle. This is a wine already showing some complexity. Ready to drink now and over the next 5-7 years.

Beautifully composed and styled, the fragrant bouquet shows spiced cherry, dark mushroom, cedar, black tea and floral characters. The palate is concentrated and elegantly weighted, displaying gorgeous silky mouthfeel and plush texture, wonderfully complemented by plenty of polished tannins. It is complex and engaging, and offers fabulous drinking.

Fragrant bouquet of white peach, nectarine and pear with subtle spice aromas on the nose. Gorgeous silky mouth feel and creamy texture. Powerful and refined with a long clean finish. Dry, with no residual sugar, this single vineyard wine is at its best now through to at least 2023.
Best served at cool room temperature to retain the aromatics.

Richly fruited and beautifully styled, this complex pinot gris displays yellow stone fruit, candied apple, lemon peel and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is succulent and plush. The wine offers silky texture and richness, brilliantly supported by perfectly pitched acidity. Powerful and refined at the same time. At its best: now to 2020. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
