Bob Campbell MW  95/100
Hottest vintage on record has produced a fruity and accessible pinot noir with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry flavours laced with spice and supported by French oak. Soft, fruity acidity provides a welcome backbone. Lovely purity and energy. Should age well. June 2020.

Cameron Douglas MS 96/100
Grown on one of the world’s most southerly Pinot Noir vineyard sites this tiny 7.8 hectare vineyard produces exceptional wine. Since the company was formed in 2001 Phil Handford and the winemaking team have established a world class brand. Pip Battley leads the winemaking team. This Pinot displays a floral, feminine charm, an elegant bouquet, core of fruit and incredible texture. Youthful yet fine, ripe tannins, pristine acidity and long complex finish. April 2020.
