96 POINTS Decanter Magazine Nov 2022Michele's notes: Deeply hued. This is a Pinot with a lot of character - dark, rich plum, violet, blood, earth, beetroot - all the best funky/umami pinot aspects.
Intensely flavoured dark fruit floods the palate and lingers deliciously. Texture is all, and the flowing sensation is sublime. This is THE Pinot for lovers of that 'earthier' style, while retaining a core of pure Tasmanian fruit.
