  1. 2A Pinot Noir 2019
    2A Pinot Noir 2019

    Made by an icon within the Australian wine industry Matt Harrop. Matt had stints at Grosset and Brokenwood before creating Shadowfax in 1999. Now making wine at Curly Flat and Silent Way, Matt has gained a reputation for making stunning cool climate wines with structure, concentration and complexity.
    This Pinot Noir was made exclusively for the Prince Wine Store with fruit sourced from the Macedon Ranges. The youthful wine presents a vibrant nose of fresh cut strawberries with a herbaceous edge. Bright red fruit follows on the palate, with fresh crunchy acidity and subtle spiced characteristic. Beautifully accompanied with roast rabbit or enjoyed on its own. PWS

  2. Martingale Estate Pinot Noir 2021
    Martingale Estate Pinot Noir 2021
    Located in the heart of the Yarra Valley in the sub-region of Gruyere, Martingale is a first-generation family run vineyard and now wine label. While still supplying some of the Yarra's finest labels with high quality fruit they have now decided to make a small amount of wine under their own label.
    An open and inviting nose with hints if underbrush and red fruits to the fore. Vibrant cherry, raspberry and a sprinkle of black fruits pull you in. There is a lovely ease and caress on the palate here that is off-set with hint of savoury oak and that Yarra underbrush poking its head through again. Not too heavy, not too light, just right. Looking forward to some more releases from Martingale, that is for sure.

  3. Wicks Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2020
    Wicks Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2020
    Wicks Estate is a family owned and operated wine company producing hand crafted wines from their vineyard located at Woodside in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. This premier cool climate wine growing regions is perfect for pinot and the team at wicks have crafted a wonderful example here of what the Adelaide Hills can do when treated right.

    This is multiple clones and multiple batches all fermented separately and all of the Woodside Vineyard site. Bright and airy on the nose with that white pepper spice from the whole berry ferments. There is a lovely zip to the palate that carries the core of punchy fruit beautifully. A little bit of spice, crunchy fruits, some fine tannin all come together to give this a bouncy and buoyant feel. This is a nice little chisel and texture here something you don't normally expect from a wine at this price. Really well done.

  4. Holm Oak Protege Pinot Noir 2021
    Holm Oak Protege Pinot Noir 2021
    Holm Oak is a labour of love for winemaker Bec Duffy and her husband Tim Duffy, viticulturalist. Since 2006 they have followed their dream of crafting delicious expressions of cool-climate Tasmanian wines and they have done this with aplomb. This is their "entry level' wine and is all about keeping it playful and fun.

    Perky red cherry fruit and whole-bunchy spice crammed with clove and spice box aromas. Bubbly and playful on the palate this is unadulterated fruit goodness that is designed for instant pleasure. Don't worry too much about trying to analyse this just enjoy the heady goodness. Everything is amped up here and the fruit plays to that Tassie underlying structure perfectly keeping this fun and energetic all the way through to the end.

  5. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.

  6. Amen Break Pinot Noir 2018
    Amen Break Pinot Noir 2018
    A collaboration between Matt Harrop and his brother Steve. Steve is a musician and record producer- he bought his vintage analogue Soundcraft 2400 desk from U2 in Dublin. He also grows his own Pinot Noir in the Waitaki Valley under the Sublime Label.

    Since 2016 the Amen break Pinot Noir has been grown at the extraordinary Zebra Vineyard in Bendigo. Soil here is very weak, loessial and alluvial river terraces.

    The ambition with the Amen Break Pinot has been to produce wines with lifted aromatic, textured mid palates and refined, lithe tannins. Hand harvested and naturally fermented. A mixture of clones that are both destemmed whole bunch pressed with no new wood.

    Lovely lifted red fruits, some pomegranate seed, lovely textured mid palate and long fine extract at the end. Evenly ripened, beautifully poised wine. Noticably absent is the heaviness of extract or overburden of wood. Pure, delicious Pinot for drinking now or into the future. PWS

  7. Palliser Estate Pencarrow Pinot Noir 2019
    Palliser Estate Pencarrow Pinot Noir 2019
    Palliser Estate planted in 1984 is one of the pioneers of the Martinborough region. Martinborough only produces 1% of New Zealands' wine but is now synonymous with growing and making great wine. All the wines are 100% estate grown from six vineyards situated on the revered Martinborough Terrace, 25% of which are under organic management with the aim to take this to 100% by 2025.

    Like so many of the great producers its not just the quality of the wines the produce but the consistency that makes them so impressive which makes Pencarrow, undoubtably, one of the greatest value wines coming out of NZ.

    We are always a little shocked at how good this wine is. Definitely touting its Martinborough heritage in a firm and savoury style pinot. More toward the black fruit spectrum of pinot there is always something a touch darker in the nose and on the pallet. Savoury tannins lightly caress the core of sweet fruit and some complex undergrowth and wild herb off-set the flavours nicely.

  8. Silent Way Pinot Noir 2021
    Silent Way Pinot Noir 2021
    Matt Harrop has been making pinot from this Kilmore site since 2013. Before that Giant Steps used to take the grapes. The vineyard is on an old bluestone quarry and it’s cold here – Kilmore sits just outside the Macedon GI. Harrop attributes the soils and cooler climate to building structure in the wine. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s the iron fist in the velvet glove, but there is an elegance to its delivery wrapped in a firm and fine tannin. It unleashes structure and flesh, complemented by a central Victorian spice that reminds you where it comes from. This pinot that doesn’t shy away from framework – though the tannins are fine in keeping with its pinot nature. Exceptional for the price! GABRIELLE POY

  9. Cote Lavande Pinot Noir 2020
    Cote Lavande Pinot Noir 2020
    A little Languedoc love here. We were suitably impressed by this littles number when it crossed our path. The philosophy here is to create a classic range of Southern French wines, produced by the enigmatic Château Canet estate in the Languedoc, Côte Lavande is supposed to be fun and care-free.

    Bright cherry and plum fruits on the nose with lovely depth and savoury complexity. You can feel the warm and sunny southern coasts in this wine. The palate shows nice weight with good fruit intensity with a bricky, earthiness that is really appealing. Its Bright and packed full of flavour. Pure and with very little or no oak to trick this up. Nice stuff!

  10. Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir 2021
    Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir 2021
    The 2021 Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir is an equal split of Merricks and Balnarring fruit. Fermentation was natural with whole berries and 10% whole-bunch (no temperature control). The fruit spent 22 days on skins, with gentle pump-overs and a small amount of plunging near the end. Eight months élevage (on gross lees) was roughly half/half in 300-litre hogsheads and foudre, with just five per cent new oak. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Nervy and crunchy style. Great line, focus and bright red, snappy fruits.

    Kooyong Pinot Noir 2019 375ml

    Kooyong, owned by Giorgio and Dianne Gjergja, released its first wines in 2001. The vineyard is planted to pinot noir (20ha), chardonnay (10.4ha) and, more recently, pinot gris (3ha). In July '15, following the departure of Sandro Mosele, his assistant of six years, Glen Hayley, was appointed to take his place. The Kooyong wines are made at the state-of-the-art winery of Port Phillip Estate, also owned by the Gjergjas. JAMES HALLIDAY

    The estate Pinot Noir from one of the Mornington Peninsula’s flag bearers.

    It’s a wine defined by its shape. It angles towards the finish and then pushes on out; the pulleys are in place from the beginning. Twiggy spice, a general woody/savouriness, dark cherry and a light coating of cedar. I wouldn’t call it taut but I would call it firm and indeed strict. It’s as though the wine’s flavour run on converging rails. It’ll be a better drink in a year or more. CAMPBELL MATTINSON

  12. Gembrook Hill Village Pinot Noir 2021
    Gembrook Hill Village Pinot Noir 2021
    Straight up, it’s good. Fragrant, well-structured and well-sustained. Orange blossoms and red cherries, garden herb and twig-like notes. Velvety/grapey tannin. Light but with plenty going on. It seems perfumed and upfront at first but the longer you sit with it the more structural it seems; its best is arguably yet ahead of it. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, winefront.com

    Giant Steps Yarra Valley LDR 2021

    May the pinot noir syrah realm continue!

    Soft, juicy red. Crisp tannins, raspberry and strawberry characters abound, white pepper spice, blood orange acidity. Thirst-quenching kind of feel. Great sense of tension and precision. Fresh as. A vibrant, exciting red. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front

    What can we say about Giant Steps that you probably don't already know. This will be the last release headed up by Steve Flamstead with Mel Chester taking the helm now. They are in good hands and this pinot/shiraz blend has proven very quickly to be a worthy addition to the stable of already excellent wines from the estate.

    Red Claw by Yabby Lake Pinot Noir 2020
    • Gold Royal Melbourne Wine Awards Melbourne

    None of Yabby Lakes' top wines, their Single Block or Single Vineyard wines were released in the difficult and very small vintage of 2020. But this humble was a beneficiary, and we're not suprised by its step up in quality. This is a classy wine for the money, large French puncheons are used adding complexity and savoury tones. Great value pinot like this is hard to find.

    Holm Oak Pinot Noir 2020
    Hand picked from multiple estate blocks of 5 clones through a 2-week period; destemmed, open fermented with wild yeast, matured for 10 months in French oak (25% new). Wonderful, crystal-clear crimson; the floral, red-fruit assemblage on the bouquet moves seamlessly into a complex palate in terms of the forest strawberry and cherry fruit, but a pure and tightly focused palate flowing effortlessly through to a long, fresh finish and lingering aftertaste. 95 points JAMES HALLIDAY

    Bass River '1835' Pinot Noir 2021
    Florals, spice and fresh earth lead on the nose. There's a mass of spiced black and red cherries that lure you in. A cushioned core of berries and spice is flourished with details that delight, adding acomplexing charm to this affordable pinot. The finish tapers off with a fine tail of tannins and a coastal sweep - reminding you of its close proximity to the ocean. A delightful pinot oozing with elegance. GABRIELLE POY, PWS

    Pipers Brook Pinot Noir 2020

    Vivid colour, like cherry juice. A little smokey reductive intrigue which gives way with some air to lovely raspberry and dark cherry with a lovely floral lining and earthy mineral undertones. Plenty of lovely ripe raspberry and cherry again on the palate, but it's lifted by crunchy acidity so never gets to weighty. Plenty of energy and drive here too a little sinew ties things up before a rasp of tannins clean up the back. ALEX DOBSON

  18. Allies Assemblage Pinot Noir 2021
    Allies Assemblage Pinot Noir 2021

    This is both the most enjoyable and the most “serious” little assemblage to date. Why can’t more people make Pinot this good at this price? No, I don’t need an actual answer to that.

    The extra enjoyability comes from the added power and weight, the slightly darker fruit and the sappy tannins that draw the wine out and give it some extra grunt. I believe there is some stems this year to rail in some of the fruit from warmer sites? Whatever it is this is one hell of a little wine for the money. Stuffed full of warming spice, plummy fruit, some autumnal, foresty characters and it all culminates with a fairly substantial and reasonably expansive finish. Great wine, great price. ROSCOE, PWS

  19. Quealy Musk Creek Pinot Noir 2019
    Quealy Musk Creek Pinot Noir 2019

    Planted in 1997 by Kevin and Kathleen with predominantly MV6, the Musk Creek vineyard at Main Ridge is a considerably cooler, and hence later-ripening site than Tussie Mussie or Seventeen Rows.

    As with most of the Pinots here, the wine was 100% destemmed and no whole bunches were used. Tom McCarthy did not sulphur the juice until pressing and fermented in two- to three-tonne fermenters, the juice spent four weeks on skins with just one plunging per day. Only the free-run wine was sent to barrel (25% to François Frères, with the remainder to one- to three-year-old hogsheads).

  20. Scout Wines Pinot x Pinot 2021
    Scout Wines Pinot x Pinot 2021
    Sarah and Greg are making fantastic wines from New Zealand's south island where their approach to site, viticulture and picking along with their gentle way in the winery, see them creating pure and forward wines with subtle complexity. Continually questioning all aspects of grape growing and winemaking, as well as challenging established ideas and practices, have been key to this small producer establishing a trademark stance for quality above all else. This release is one of the best we have seen.

    This is 90% Pinot Noir with 10% Pinot Gris-the two varieties are not often blended, but together they provide Scout with an ode to Beaujolais-resulting in a bright, light, crunchy and delicious red wine. It was sourced from two vineyards in Central Otago, both organically managed and harvested by hand. Components of this wine were allowed to undergo spontaneous carbonic maceration over 7-14 days. After this time, the grapes were foot-stomped and finished the ferment on skins. Once pressed, it was aged in old oak for six months before bottling in September.
