What the Experts Say
I think this is from Kilmore, which sits just outside of the Macedon GI. Tasted from a cute little 150ml can, and I’ve decided I really like wine in little cans. Be a great idea on planes too, when we can travel again, some year or another.
Dark cherry, baked beetroot or something a bit earthy and dark like that, a little spice and mint. It delivers lots of flavour, dark and almost choc-cherry flavour, but with new leather, fresh acidity, gentle but insistent dense tannin, something of a Campari/radicchio twang on a solid finish. A bit idiosyncratic, but really enjoyable. Like it. Excellent value too.
91/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
Loads of character here and a lot going on. This natural-ferment Pinot Noir shows chocolate and some savoury earthy mushroom notes, sure, but also a little more tannin than you might associate with the grape and some great little root-vegetable nudges.
Herbaceous, earthy and a little eccentric with an easygoing authenticity, this one’s a real free-spirited hippie of a wine and all the better for it.
Grown at Quarry Ridge Vineyard Kilmore. Hand picked, 15% whole bunches in the ferment. Aromatic, rich and weighty
