“...Class act throughout from the tight coils of concentrated fruit, supple, even-handed tannins to smooth-knit oak. With texture and presence.” 95 Points - Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion August 2020
Give this wine a bit of time to show its true colours, it's made for the long haul, with ample tannin and acidity as well as fruit density to last the distance. Densely packed layers of aroma on the nose, with a strikingly intense palate, are supported by especially vibrant and luscious fruit notes and fine tannin structure. A wine that will continue to open and grow with time in the bottle.

Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard has been cultivating vines using biodynamic methods since 2010. This means that their wines are free of all synthetic treatments, additives and pesticides. Instead they travel the alternative path, stepping back in time and using cosmic rhythms to ensure soil regenereation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year’s seasonal cycles.
Their much sought-after wines are the result of a passionate unrelenting quest for perfection. This passion, along with free thinking and attention to detail allows them to create wines which reflect this vision. Their focus on traditional and environmentally sensitive principals has only strengthened their desire to create wines that have a unique and distinctive character, with free-flowing elegance and quality.

A rocking, rolling, fruit pastille-charged, filigree-fine pinot noir from a winemaker who always delivers. An upbeat entry with small red berries, toasted spice, orange rind aromas. Class act throughout from the tight coils of concentrated fruit and supple, even-handed tannis to smooth-knit oak. With texture and presence. Screw cap 13% alc.
Gary Walsh The Wine Front 94 points
Thoroughly charming style of Pinot Noir with red berries, a little undergrowth and spice, plus a pencil/mineral thing happening, which is a lovely addition. It’s light, but firm and nudges you gently with tannin, cool acidity, perhaps some orange rind coming through on a long finish. It’s savoury, but has purity of fruit too, if that makes any sense. Feels like it will build in bottle very nicely.
