Murdoch Hill Artisan Series Apollo Pinot Noir 2022


The colour’s so pale, it’s hard to imagine the power, intensity and sheer presence that such a pretty wine can have. Very complex aromatics of tangy red fruits, cool hedge fruits, Chinese five spice, blood orange, savoury spice and wild herbs. Deep and concentrated, the tannins, skin and bunch are present to swirl, taste and feel. There’s a firmness to them and a slipperiness as well, al dente. We tried this over the course of several hours, and the whole bunches receded somewhat, while the fruit became sweeter the savoury elements drier and the general flow smooth as silk. A remarkable wine, almost a challenge to the drinker at this stage and it begs time in your cellar. There is so much more to come and in time will be like a cross between Gevrey and Chambolle. What a wine. 100 dozen made. Waters Wine Co


The wine is called Apollo, and when you taste it, it takes you to the stars. This wine is so good, and so distinct, that it’s tempting to say that it redefines what is possible with pinot noir and the Adelaide Hills. It’s complex. It’s structured. It’s Italianate. It’s varietal. And it’s itself. It brings smoked, ripe, berried fruit to the table and then layers woodsy herbs, gunmetal, twigs and peppers throughout. It’s a big statement in measured, precise voice. Wow. Seriously. Wow. 98 Points, Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion
