The roll call of vineyards are formidable, Applejack, Primavera, Sexton, Tarraford, Wombat Creek, and they combine here like Voltron. About 40% is whole bunch here.

Starts with a meaty savouriness, rolls on with sour and sweet cherry, whiffs of briar, white pepper. Nice fragrance. Palate is awash with the flavours of the scent, sour-sweet, pepper, tangy and bright. It’s quite transparent, quite crunchy, quite edgy even – a wine that bristles in the palate while it soars in bouquet. A chill likely would tame the mad angles and temper the squirts of tart-peaky cherry flavours and fold in some of the green-peppery stuff. It’s got high drinkability which ever way you look at it, though, just perhaps not the finesse one expects when ‘pinot noir’ and ‘Giant Steps’ sit on a label. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front
