"By far and away the most aromatic of Kooyong's trio of Pinot Noirs, this is a high pitched soprano brimming with red fruits, all. The emphasis is on strawberry, red cherry and raspberry, given a creamy lick of vanillin, cinnamon oak at the seams and a sprightly tang of candied orange rind, beaming across the wine's centre. The ease with which this fragrant wine can be knocked back, belies its inherent complexity. Amen!" JAN 2017. 96 points Ned Goodwin.
"Perfumed, spicy, liquorice root and amaro herbs, succulent red fruits. It’s medium bodied, silky and fine, with a deep sweep of fine pumice stone tannin, cool minerally acidity, delicious flavour, and that tasty Campari edge pushing through the finish. Here’s a lovely wine, and pretty much, it feels at ease with itself and ready to drink from any time…now." AUG 2017. 95 points Gary Walsh.
"Medium red colour with a purple tinge; meaty charcuterie-like aromas; quite complex and inviting. Pot-pourri and strawberry came through with airing time. The wine is medium-bodied and soft, also fresh and alive in the mouth. Lovely wine, intense and fine and focused, the palate long and satisfying." JUL 2017. 95 points Huon Hooke.
