It’s the epitome of a good, ready to rock, well-structured pinot noir. A bit of fruit grunt, a good curl of tannin, assorted dried spices/leaves and a fan of flavour on the finish. This is a very tasty wine. Ready to be consumed as a youngster, but with serious componentry. Drink 2012-2017

This is a bright and fragrant pinot noir that has plenty of red-cherry fruit lifting through fine spices, a hint of red liquorice and musky perfume. The palate’s bright, light and lively with crunchy red-cherry and strawberry flavour stretched across a web of ripe, nutty tannin. Good value and very approachable.

This maker's entry-level pinot is a well-priced wine of style and charm. Spice, nettle and fern-like aromas, recalling dried herbs and stalks, with sappy and sweet-cherry aromas and flavours. Very ripe pinot character. Now to 2018. Drink with warm duck salad.

Light, clear crimson; another Mornington Peninsula pinot that is relatively shy on the bouquet, but effusive and intense on the palate, with pronounced fraises du bois flavours that drive through to the finish and aftertaste. Drink to 2017

This entry level wine does its job well. Definitively Pinot; cherry fruit driven with elements of spice. More front palate intensity than back but holds its form pretty well. Drink 2011+
