5 Stars – Raymond Chan
Single Vineyard Claim 431

Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge with slight purple tints.  This has an elegantly presented nose with fragrant aromas of dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit entwined with thyme herbs, notes of liquorice and spices and violet florals.  The aromatics are harmoniously integrated with fragrant beauty and detail.  Medium-bodied, the palate has sweet and luscious flavours of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits interwoven with plum elements, herbs and spices, some liquorice suggestions, unfolding violet florals.  The fruit sweetness is supported by supple, fine-grained tannin extraction with soft acidity, lending softness to the mouthfeel.  The wine carries to a sustained finish with lifted red floral notes.  This is a softly sweet and luscious, harmonious Pinot Noir with cherry and berry fruit along with herb, spice, liquorice and floral notes on a very fine-textured, supple palate.  This has beauty and detail.  Serve with poultry and pork over the next 5+ years.  Fruit from the ‘Claim 431’ vineyard, Bendigo, hand-picked and destemmed, and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new French oak.  2,200 dozen made.  18.5/20  Dec 2018  Checkout the wine here.
