So different from the two other bottlings. Unique bouquet that is nothing short of enthralling. Brooding, bloody,dark and deep, with black fruits, vanilla, lavender, campfire ash and soy. The most structured of the three with plummy, gamey notes. Detailed and layered as ever, with firm tannins, and driving flavour. I have never tried a wine like this, with so many combinations of flavours and textures. Hints of Barolo, Frankland River Grenache and traditional Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Thoroughbred stuff, and one for the ages. Waters Wine Co.
Extremely perfumed with rose-petal, violet, rose-stem and sweet-strawberry aromas that follow through to a full-bodied palate with tight, juicy tannins that are strong and intense. A very structured, young, top pinot from here. Needs three to four years to soften. Try after 2024. 98 points – James Suckling.com
