The pick of the bunch here for me and the most complex palate with flavours and structural elements coming at your from all directions yet with a silky and elegant delivery. Red-fruit dominant with raspberry, dried strawberry and a hint of rhubarb which all bring touches of fruit sweetness. But this sweetness is quickly counter-balanced by whole-bunch savouriness which really helps this wine by adding structure and a touch of grip on the finish. It has a slight sappiness and sits very elegantly on the palate. Definite similarities with Jim’s ‘Isle’ Pinot from Huon. – Ches Cook, FWC.
Bird bird bird is the word. From a 15 year old vineyard in Piper’s River. Bird has the least whole bunch of the trio, sporting a modest 10%, and yet, it tastes the most bunchy. Lucky I’m not a winemaker. I’d expect Campbell will like this wine best of the three. 112 dozen produced.
Fresh strawberries dusted with pepper and spice, sap and autumn leaves, a little crushed mint and dried flowers. It’s light, bright, and kind of crunchy, cranberry freshness to the acidity, brightly lit, tight and energetic to close. Very good, but quite bony and structural. Could be a bit of a dark horse. Rated 94+ points. Drink 2022 – 2030. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
