Press ReviewPress

Sandro Mosele’s wizardry with pinot noir and chardonnay is evident in every wine he makes, even right here in his entry pinot. 2012 is a great vintage for the estate, with confident potential in the cellar. It leads out with a delightful bouquet of rose buds, red cherries and brambles, throwing to a tangy, savoury and finely structured palate, with red cherry fruit well framed by finely textured tannins and tangy acidity.

Tyson StelzerWine Taste Weekly, 4 th July 2014

Generous and flavoursome, likely to flesh out over the shorter term, with a punchy bouquet of beetroot, dark cherries, plums and baked earth backed by hints of blue flowers and tomato stalk. Medium in weight, with pure, intense flavours of plums, cherries and blueberries supported by tight, dusty tannins, it finishes with length and a refreshing acidity.

Jeremy OliverThe Australian Wine Annual 2014

Full, bright crimson-purple; black cherry and blood plum set the scene for both the bouquet and palate alike; the structure seems to come more from acidity than tannins, and the wine will develop slowly. 93/100

James HallidayAustralian Wine Companion, 2015 Edition

Winemaking

The 2008 vintage was characterised by an early start and above average yields. A hot week experienced in March had a pronounced effect on the fruit yet to be picked. Fortunately, the vast majority of our fruit had already been harvested. The unseasonably cool February greatly enhanced the aromatic qualities of wines harvested prior to the heat, making these some of the most expressive and individualistic wines made yet. 100% destemmed and fermented in open vats without innoculation. Matured for 12 months in French oak (15% new) Estate grown fruit is now supplemented by specially selected purchased parcels of fruit. The trellis type is Vertical Shoot Position (VSP)
