From a roadside vineyard in Gibbston and the unreasoningly hot 2018 vintage. Elegant, supple pinot noir with floral, dark cherry, five spice and grape stem flavours. A surprisingly approachable wine with restrained power. It should develop well. Drink: 2020-2026    

94 points | Bob Campbell,

It was a particularly special year for this traditionally cooler sub-region and the result is a sublime red cherry, raspberry and violet expression of Pinot Noir, chaperoned by a suite of savoury, sappy undertones. Wild fermentation, 50% whole-cluster inclusion and a low-toast oak regime gives elegance, complexity and structure to the wine. Maintaining the minimalist philosophy, this wine was bottled without filtration which means nothing is taken away though a natural deposit will occur over time.
