    Semi translucent red to dark red colour with a bright light red hue. A little reserved, the nose yields aromas of violets, red cherries, wild strawberries and clove with some spicy cedar and forest floor notes also evident. A delicious mix of red to dark cherry and strawberry fruits floods the mouth underscored by notions of spicy vanillin cedar, light clove and forest floor. Finishes with good freshness, finely grained tannins and a long savoury aftertaste.

    From the oldest vines on the Lone Star Creek vineyard at Woori Yallock.
    What we have here is a brooding pinot noir that may well fail to communicate its real strengths if you open it now but which has an excellent cellaring future ahead. This is a wine with presence if not so much prettiness; a wine rolled with tannin and tucked with spice; a wine with red liquorice and chicory riven into red cherry and cedar. It requires some coaxing, let’s say, but its quality is clear and in any case its charms fan out with air. Drink 2022-2028+
