"Full, even, dark ruby-red colour with light, youthful purple hues. The nose is elegantly presented and seamlessly refined with tightly bound aromas of dark red cherry and berry fruit infused with violet florals, nuances of liquorice, pepper and spices, all harmoniously interwoven. Medium-full bodied and elegantly concentrated, tightly bound flavours of dark red cherry and berry fruit are entwined with thyme and fennel herbs, spices and liquorice. The fruit is lifted by dark red and violet florals. The palate is sleek and has a satin-like smoothness and flow, and follows a very fine line with flowery tannins, carrying through to a very long and sustained finish of cherries and florals. This is a beautifully sleek, seamless and elegant Pinot Noir with aromatic cherry and berry fruit with herbal detail. Match with poultry and pork, and with Asian fare over the next 5-6 years. Clones 5, 114, 115, 667 and 777 from the ‘Mondillo’ vineyard, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine spending 21-24 days on skins and aged 11 months in 30% new French oak. 18.5/20 May 2015" Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
