“This is an epic wine with about as perfect a nose as can be imagined outside of Chambolle.” Matthew Jukes. In Halliday's Top Ten for Ten Years in a Row... Classic Gary Farr in every way. Every aspect of the wine is comforting and nostalgic. It is looking great already and will get even better over the next 12 months and beyond. James Halliday 96 Halliday Top Ten for Ten Years in a Row,,,, Nick and Gary Farr stand side by side, but aren’t afraid to go head-to-head when their opinions differ. Each generation has developed a distinctive winemaking style based on his individual experience and taste, and their respective lines—By Farr by...
Bob Campbell....No 2 rated PN for Central Otago.....95 points. Doctors Flat Pinot is about Steve Davies’ pursuit of wine true to its origin—wine of terroir. The vines are organically farmed with care and harvested by hand. The fruit is then fermented in small open tanks with minimal intervention. The wines spend 12 months in French barrels (about 1/3 new) and then a winter resting in tank, before being bottled in the following spring without fining or filtration. Only the best of the small lots are blended to make the single vineyard Doctors Flat Pinot Noir. 5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage) "The highly age-worthy 2016 vintage is a...
(BC 96) Bob Campbell 96: "..Made from grapes grown in the upper slopes (420m) of the Bendigo sub-region. Rich, dense pinot noir with dark-fleshed plum, dark cherries, wood smoke, old leather and liquorice flavours...."
ACCOLADES Cameron Douglas MS 93pts Wine Orbit 93 pts 5 stars Raymond Chan 5 stars Peter Saunders 5 Stars Sydney International Wine Competition 2017 (AUS) –Blue Gold. TASTING NOTES: The 2013 Pinot Noir is the perfect example of Drumsara Wines’ Terroir, expressing dark and wild fruits of the forest; cherry, plum and strawberry, with an underlying hint of spices. The palate abounds in deep fruits, supplemented by vanilla beans and cocoa. The fine grained tanins and lively acidity give the wine great length and aging potential. Enjoy now thru 2020. .

Wine Front 93 points. The vineyard (planted on original rootstock in 2001) is located in the heart of the Western District Farming country, approximately 150 kilometers south-west of Melbourne. The soils across the slope of the site are a mixture of grey sandy clay loams at the south end to dark brown loams with fragments of buckshot and quartz gravels towards the north. All with underlying brown to yellow clays. Overall the soils remain very moist throughout the year because of the clay based soil profile and annual rainfall of 885mm, resulting in the very attractive damp earthiness character in the fruit and wine. Nick Farr has been taking...
"Intense concentration and brightness to eclipse the sun. Gorgeous structure and classic form. Plenty of time to run and for me - more enjoyable right now than its bomb-diggity younger brother from 2013."RR4WEA #Dryriver
Platter Guide 91 points. "2018 fresher-fruited aromas & lighter in feel & structure than usual, with more fruity charm, in what is often one of the Cape’s more tannic, burly pinots. But perhaps less intensity, though it handles 50% new oak effortlessly. Lovely dry finish." Wine tasted by Angela Lloyd. Intense, vivid translucent youthful purple-ruby appearance. The wine shows pronounced lifted perfume on the nose with red berry fruit, musk, wild mushrooms and hints of savoury richness and spice and a clean vibrant minerality. . On the palate there are very pure Pinot fruit flavours on entry with red cherry and musk flavours coupled with...
95 Points - Campbell Mattinson 2021 Halliday Wine Companion "Roars back into form. One word: character. Clean character. It's firm, red-fruited, sure-footed, a little spicy and low in oak. It's light but it feels confident. You just feel as though you're in good hands. Lengthy finish. A good strike of earthen tannin. Wood smoke as afters." Wine Front 94 points. It is a little known fact that the block of Pinot Noir directly in front of the Mount Pleasant winery is one of the oldest plantings of the famed MV6 (Mothervine 6) clone in Australia and that the majority of the plantings in this country have been propagated using cuttings from this...
James Suckling 92 points. It is stuff like this that keeps us enthused about our work. A real revelation and a really big flip of the bird to the winesnobs. April 2017....When the President of the Barolo Wine Producers Consortium (i.e. Orlando Pecchenino) invites you to lunch, it really is an offer you can't refuse. When he then proceeds to kick off festivities by pouring his experimental pinot noir, you start wondering where the journey is taking you. Pinot Noir from the Barolo region....really? We fell silent and expected the worst, only to be delighted by a unique but undoubtedly well made wine. His enthusiasm for the variety will no...
