Pinot Noir 

 

2015 Abel's Tempest Pinot Noir    "An aromatic bouquet with cherry and plum fruits coupled with spicy nuances, the medium-bodied palate flavours following on directly from the bouquet; excellent persistence of the fruit, line, length and balance tick all the boxes. Tasmania is as Tasmania does" - James Halliday, 95 points      $27.95 per bottle

2015 Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir    "Everything a young vine Pinot Noir should be - fresher, lighter, more accessible... The fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruits are fresh, vibrant, ripe and bright, with nuances of fresh herbs. This has wonderful primary fruit lift and fragrance. On palate just so juicy and succulent, with plush and vibrant dark red cherry and berry fruits... The wine has linearity and seriousness at the core. But it is just delicious" - Raymond Chan, 18.5+ points out of 20; "New Zealand's best-value pinot noir, hands down... The really pure red cherry and boysenberry pinot fruits come complete with a subtle twist of spice and are evenly ripened and nicely caught. The palate has a gently rainy tannin texture and some bright and tart cherry fruits. Nice and juicy, super bright, upbeat and fresh" - Nick Stock, 93 points      $29.95 per bottle

2008 Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir    "The most delightful Crimson to date. It is beautifully perfumed on both the bouquet and palate" - Tyson Stelzer, 93 points; "You need all of the Pinot knowledge in the world to understand just how special Crimson is" - Matthew Jukes, The Top 50 New World Pinot Noirs; "The value here is quite astonishing. Possibly the best introduction one could possibly have to NZ pinot... this seriously punches above its weight" - Jamie Drummond; "Oodles of charm... Deliciously drinkable and pleasantly affordable" - Bob Campbell, MW; "This wine is utterly charming with an underlying structure that has real weight and power" - Helen Masters; "Lovely to drink" - The Wine Front, 90 points      $36.95 per bottle

2015 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir  "Medium-full bodied, the palate features rich and succulently sweet flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruits along with black fruits lifted by dark-red and violet florals and subtle notes of dark herbs. Suggestions of spice and oak emerge. The flavours are beautifully precise, detailed and harmoniously balanced, and the mouthfeel very supple and fine-textured with flowery tannin extraction. The acidity is integrated and provides vitality for the refined core and line. The wine flows seamlessly to a long and sustained, complete finish. This is a beautifully rich and multi layered and detailed Pinot Noir of precision and harmony, with succulently sweet fruit and refined structure, enabling accessibility, and showing completeness" - Raymond Chan, 19.5+ points out of 20   $76.95 per bottle

2014 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir  "Medium-full bodied, vibrantly succulent and lusciously sweet fruit flavours of dark red berry and cherry fruit are harmoniously melded with flavours of ripe dark plums and fragrant violet florals, dark herbs, spices and red liquorice. The flavours are seamlessly mouthfilling and supported by refined, flowery tannin extraction, and enlivened by poised acidity. This has drive, energy and fine linearity, and the wine carries to a very long and sustained, rich finish of spiced cherries and raspberry liqueur. This is a beautifully rich and succulent, elegantly balanced and refined Pinot Noir with seamless-flowing, ripe flavours of dark berry and cherry fruit with complexing floral and herbal detail" - Raymond Chan, 19.5 points out of 20; "Layers of silk and sap, mouth-perfume of roses and dried herbs, fine acidity and excellent length. Closes with a sappy/chicory bitterness that may polarise, but those who like a firm NZ tweak on the finish will take it with pinch of pleasure. Strong release from this great producer" - The Wine Front, 95 points  $76.95 per bottle

2013 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir  "Tension and vibrancy on the entry, with a compelling mid palate of fine layered tannins flowing through to a seamless, mineral quality on the finish. A masterpiece. Commanding and seductive pinot noir at its finest" - Nick Stock, 98/99 points; "Beautifully ripened dark red berry fruits and subtle, interwoven and harmonious complexing detail. Density, depth, brooding somewhat, with clear potential. Rich and plush on palate, with concentration. Layers of flavour built in, and unfolding slowly to reveal complex detail. Yet integrated and complete. Beautifully structured, and in total balance, and a fine acid and tannin line. Very long and succulent. Complete and immensely pleasing" - Raymond Chan, 19.5 points out of 20; "Exotic pot pourri - great scent. Immediately wonderful with stern, coiled textural feel chaperoned by stony tannins and driving long, energetically, and fluid, with crisp red fruit character and a dried herb/garrigue complexity. Finishes mouthwatering and with a lick of sweetness and spice. Pretty epic" - Mike Bennie, 95+ points; "One of the greatest of all New Zealand wines, this Martinborough red is powerfully built and concentrated, yet seductively fragrant and supple... Deep ruby, it has dense cherry, plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity. A beautifully poised young wine, savoury and finely textured, it is crying out for more time" - Michael Cooper *****  $84.95 per bottle

2012 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir  "Succulent and concentrated, powerful but smooth as silk on the tongue. Great flesh and density, texturally superb, rich and smooth. Long aftertaste. It's not a delicate ethereal style, but generous and full of flavour and character. Very cellarworthy" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "This is a quintessential Ata Rangi pinot that we know and love, exhibiting sensuality with seductive power... It's supremely elegant yet intense and persistent. The wine shows seamless mouthfeel and texture, within a frame of fine/firm tannins" - Sam Klim, 96 points; "On the palate deliciously juicy, sweet and lush with a broad spectrum of flavours from raspberry fruits, confectionary, complexing herbs and florals. The richness gives way to fine-grained, dry tannins, which lend a firm, underlying line. The wine has accessibility, and the fine textures lead to a vibrant, lively, dry finish. This is an elegant, accessibly, open-fruited Pinot Noir" - Raymond Chan, 18.5 points out of 20  $86.95 per bottle

2011 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir    "Elegant and quite complex with tight, powerful cherry/berry fruit flavours and an underlying sappy, savoury mineral character that lifts the wine. A classic Ata Rangi Pinot from a good year" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, 98 points; "In the warm 2011 vintage, Ata Rangi shone... The definition of black cherries, blackberries and violets is exemplary, framed in a tightly-honed and well-defined structure, with a coiled spring of tannin tension and refined mineral definition. Notes of liquorice and coal make this an intense Ata Rangi, though lacking nothing in poise and magnificence" - Tyson Stelzer, 96 points; "Delicious palate flavour, and very good weight and structure. A very serious pinot that needs plenty of time to show its best. A highlight is its perfect ripeness, which gives great flavour." - Huon Hooke- 96 points; "Medium-bodied and elegantly concentrated, refined tannin extraction forms the core on palate with tightly bound, dark cherry fruit and violet and dark red floral perfumes providing a gentle sweetness and lusciousness. Fresh, bright, lacy acidity lends vitality and the wine carries to a graceful, lingering finish. This is a beautiful, elegant and balance wine with finesse and grace. A classical Ata Rangi wine" - Raymond Chan, 19.0 points out of 20; "This wine is intensely fragrant... In the mouth the pinot quality of the wine is superb, soft yet fresh even crisp red grading to black cherry, perfect oak shaping but in no way dominating the wine, and great length of fruit and flavour. The fruit lightens back to red-dominant in the aftertaste, which is very burgundian... we must celebrate this as great new world pinot noir. Is this the best Ata Rangi pinot noir yet?" - Geoff Kelly, 18.5+ points out of 20   $86.95 per bottle

2010 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir  "One of Ata Rangi's best ever wines. It has a silken, mouth-filling texture, although the layering of fruit and sauvory flavours is nearly as appealing. I'm not sure how they can improve on this wine" - Bob Campbell MW, 98 points; "All class... The finish is reminiscent of the perfect gymnastic dismount. Brilliant" - Nick Stock, 96 points; "An elegantly proportioned wine that builds on the palate to show succulently sweet flavours... Silky, fine tannins provide a seamless texture and the wine exudes refinement, driven by an underlying concentration. The flavours flow to a Peacock's tail of flavours... a beautifully elegant and refined, but concentrated Pinot Noir that will evolve with layers of interest over the next 6-8 years. Outstanding for the vintage" - Raymond Chan, 19.0 points out of 20; "An appealing sweet juiciness and spiciness that's just so seductive... its persistence and length is what marks it out as a Pinot Noir of the highest quality" - The Wine Front, 95 points  $89.95 per bottle

2013 Balnarring Vineyard Pinot Noir    Kathleen Quealy's single vineyard pinot from the wonderful 2013 Mornington Peninsula vintage is a captivating example of the variety. A truly delicious pinot, with wonderful red fruit aromas that lead into a silky, feminine palate of great finesse. Gorgeous with duck; "A complex bouquet ranges through plum, cherry, spice and briar aromas; these characters likewise drive the long, gently savoury palate, the balance very good" - James Halliday, 94 points    $29.95 per bottle  

2012 Bannock Brae Goldfields Central Otago Pinot Noir    "This favoured site on Cairnmuir Road in Bannockburn has delivered yet another pinot of distinction. Smelling it is a pleasure - forest floor, dried herb and dark plum all come through. In the mouth it is juicy with lovely fresh acidity and tapers to a long fine finish" - Cuisine Wine ****(*) ; "Medium-full bodied, soft and restrained flavours of red fruits and aromatic florals unfold spices, earth and cedary oak. The palate is supported by a fine-grained tannin line with good drive and energy" - Raymond Chan, 17.5 points out of 20    $32.95 per bottle  

2016 Bannockburn 1314 A.D. Pinot Noir    This the most interesting and complex pinot I've tasted for under $30. Dark cherry fruit, spice and sap combine to make-up a lip smacking pinot that is moreish and easy to drink; "You would be hard pressed to find a better value for money Pinot, the 1314 release is made in similar style to the Estate wine with definitive whole bunch character (20%), lip smakingly expressive fruit and oak treatment that you rarely find on a wine sub $30... The 1314 is still a well kept secret, it's worth hunting some down" - Winereviewer.com.au, 94 points; "Stylistically, this taps into the very best of the Bannockburn styles, with still the same sappy, ripe and very Pinoty nose. This is Geelong Pinot mate, and it smells unlike Burgundy (terroir at work). Importantly, this has a length of sappy, almost stewed (but not in an overripe sense) fruit, and some late bitterness for backbone. The stems are there, but so is that fruit too, in a not-delicate-but-delicious style. I've tasted a bit of Burgundy recently, and know that if you slipped this into a blind lineup of village level wines, it would smash many... Substantial wine for the dollars. Would I buy it? Yes" - Australian Wine Review, 93 points    $27.95 per bottle  

2005 Bannockburn Pinot Noir    "A delicious pinot" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, 94 points *****; "Lovely length. Lovely fragrance... This will be beautiful in seven to ten years" - The Wine Front, 94 point; James Halliday - 94 points    $58.95 per bottle  

2015 Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir     "Long, gentle and fine-grained, this deeply floral young pinot has a brightly perfume of red cherries, blood plums, redcurrants, musky spices and fiery, earthy undertones. It's pristine and evenly paced, with a fleshy, sweet fruited and almost fatty palate" - Jeremy Oliver, 95 points; "Medium bodied at most, sappy and animated, redcurrant and pomegranate, fine burr of kitten's tongue tannin, pleasing sense of delicacy, and pretty fine length. Delicious" - Gary Walsh, 94+ points  $74.95 per bottle

2014 Bass Phillip Estate Pinot Noir     "The finest release yet under this label is beautifully fragrant, deeply flavoured and complex, with just a hint of meaty development... It's medium to full-bodied, unfolding gentle but unctuous layers of red cherries, plums and drying, kernelly tannins extending with length and completeness towards a lingering finish of refreshing acidity. Very true to the Bass Phillip style and character" - Jeremy Oliver, 96 points; "Lovely wine, rich and concentrated, deep and fleshy, with marvellously detailed flavour and profound depths as well as balance. Enormous persistence. A wine of beauty and harmony, elegance and refinement. A stand-out wine" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "Ripe fruited, tight, power of flavour and great density of fruit, yet an almost ethereal float across the palate too. It does it all. A wine that sits in the the mouth and levitates then asks you back to the glass. What a wine!" - Mike Bennie, 95 points; "It's all drive and dare, power and glory, the combination of satiny texture and minerally, smoky savouriness an exercise in pure seduction" - James Halliday, 94 points  $79.95 per bottle

2015 Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir    "It's full-bodied and dense, high-extract, loaded with tannin and lush in spicy flavour. The fruit is lavish as are the tannins. A wholly impressive pinot, which will surely soar in a high trajectory over the next few years. The density, concentration and fleshy extract are mightily impressive, as is the prodigious length" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "A true Australian grand cru pinot, seamlessly weaving red berry and cherry fruit through floral, spicy, foresty complexities and perfectly applied oak. Soft, finely structured, silky, poised and lingering in the mouth. Superb" - Ralph Kyte-Powell, 97 points; "So sure-footed and confident, it almost has a swagger. Cherry, sweet cinnamon and cedar oak, dried flowers, a little earthy bass. Medium bodied, silky and precise, with delectable savoury and fruit sweet switching, layered and complex already, laced up tight with ultra-fine pixel tannin, and long smashed strawberry and spice finish. A delight. Really needs a few years" - Gary Walsh, 96 points; "Long and stylish, with a spicy, gamey fragrance of red cherries, redcurrants, minerals and cola backed by nuances of dried herbs and cedary oak, this medium to full-bodied pinot is laced with scents of red flowers and stony, earthy undertones. It's supple and sappy but piercingly intense, with penetrative flavours of small red berries and cherries supported by a firmish spine of fine, powdery tannins, finishing with lively acids and a hint of mineral" - Jeremy Oliver, 95 points    $210.00 per bottle

2014 Bass Phillip Premium Pinot Noir    "Pinot noir with flavour and attitude and a scaffold of tannin is one thing, and this wine has all those things. But pinot noir with a ricochet of flavour through the finish, a sense of spread and run, an impression that the burst/explosion turned out to be greater than the package of the palate had predicted; this is far rarer territory, and it is the domain of this wine" - James Halliday, 98 points; "The palate is rich, full and expansive. The flavour, texture and weight of the wine are superb... a tip-top pinot with a big future. Lush sweet fruit, tobacco, foresty notes, savoury; loads of fine-grained tannins. Long and lovely" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "Energetic, intense and deeply expressive... It's explosive and pristine, unfolding layers of pristine fruit that plays long and straight down its bony, mineral spine towards a lingering savoury finish and a youthfully bitey acidity. For the long term" - Jeremy Oliver, 96 points; "Just juicy in the palate with fine, slender coils of tannin that twist then tighten through finish. Incredible structure and power, yet freshness and vibrancy. A wine to suck on and chew, then admire the cadence of fruit. Beautiful" - Mike Bennie, 96 points    $220.00 per bottle

2012 Bay of Fires Pinot Noir    "The 2012 Pinot Noir is an even better wine than the multiple trophy winning 2011 - Peter Dredge (winemaker); "There is no question about its varietal expression, and even less about the long-tern future of the wine; black cherry and Satsuma plum are woven through French oak, with firm, but ripe, tannins underwriting its future; will gain layers of complexity as it develops" - James Halliday, 96 points; "Cherry, Turkish delight, spice, meaty whole bunch funk, pepper. Medium bodied, spicy, meaty, plenty of ripe jubey fruit, silky feel yet firm through the mouth, pulling almost stalky and strict on the finish. Fine length. Complexity and interest. Likely to improve" - Gary Walsh, 94 points    $39.95 per bottle

2012 Bindi Composition Pinot Noir   "More intense and complex, although still in the red fruit spectrum, with the first signs of spice starting to develop; it has drive and intensity on the palate, light-bodied in terms of tannin, extract and oak, but with great length, and a lingering aftertaste" - James Halliday, 95 points  $49.95 per bottle

2011 Bindi Composition Pinot Noir  "Magic nose - already expressive... Very subtle tannins, sappy finish. Great" - Jancis Robinson, 17.0+ points   $49.95 per bottle

2010 Bindi Composition Pinot Noir    "Restrained and elegant... smooth, supple... it's juicy but also ethereal, spotlessly made and simply waiting its chance to flourish" - Jeremy Oliver's Top Picks Of 2011, 93 points; "Classic Bindi line, length and balance; a fragrant, scented bouquet, then red and black cherry fruit on the very long palate, the tannins superfine but reassuringly persistent" - James Halliday, 94 points; "I feel comfortable in saying this is an outstanding vintage for Bindi" - Michael Dhillon     $56.95 per bottle

2012 Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir   "The fragrant, flowery cherry blossom aromas almost inevitably lead into a red cherry palate, its texture a silk brocade, satin underneath; the great length of its palate is built around its delicately etched spine of acidity, bringing notes of far-distant herbs and citrus rind into play" - James Halliday, 96 points     $76.95 per bottle

2011 Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir    $76.95 per bottle

2010 Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir    "Profound flavour and presence, great drive, and lovely persistence with plenty of potential"- Huon Hooke, 96 points; "Very shapely and deeply flavoured, with an alluring, spicy and musky fragrance... It's long and supple, with a lustrous... It builds steadily on the palate, finishing with a satisfying tension between power and balance" - Jeremy Oliver, 95 points; "Very pure, lifted aromatics... Palate is unctuous, luscious and cool with red cherry... Fine yet rippling with youthful drinkability" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 94 points     $84.95 per bottle

2003 Black Ridge Central Otago Pinot Noir    Gorgeous!     $39.95 per bottle

2010 Bress Gold Chook Macedon Pinot Noir    "Elegantly poised, silky structured, fragrantly lifted, gorgeously perfumed and hauntingly persistent. It unites rose petals, red cherries, wild strawberries, dried herbs and exotic spice into a seamlessly flowing stream which rolls over a tannin bed of silky yet firm and assured structure" - Tyson Stelzer, 96 points     $42.95 per bottle

2012 Bress Silver Chook Yarra Valley Macedon Pinot Noir    Adam Marks is renowned for producing fragrant, elegant and silkily structured pinot noir. This wine is no exception and showcases the outstanding 2012 vintage in both the Yarra Valley and the Macedon ranges... smooth and supple, with a delicious palate of red and black cherry fruit; "The palate is focused, vibrant and fresh, with fine tannins and lively red fruits lingering on the supple finish" - James Halliday, 92 points     $24.95 per bottle

2015 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir    "The palate is fruit-sweet and succulent, deliciously flavoured and lush, with softness and charm to burn. An utterly gorgeous wine. Long finish - real concentration. Balance and texture are its highlights" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "Finesse to the max. Svelte, elegance, understated. Delicious, moreish fruit, spice and mineral flavours. Wonderful lingering flavours and aromas. Idiosyncratic in the best possible sense. This is an outstanding wine" - Mike Bennie, 95 points     $74.95 per bottle

2014 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir    "The bouquet, while complex, is the calm before the storm of the palate, which strikes the second the wine enters the mouth, and doesn't abate until long after the wine has gone from the glass. Its great character is the fusion of plum/black cherry fruit with a savoury carpet of spices and sweet earth. Quite simply, a very great pinot" - James Halliday, 98 points     $78.95 per bottle

2013 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir    "This is a beauty. Seduction plus. Certified yum. Swish oak, spiced cherry-plum, exquisite integration of various savoury nuances and length to burn. It's rich and generous but firm and complex. Its smoky, slinky, satiny mouthfeel is to die for. For sheer top-end drinkability; it's sensational" - The Wine Front, 96 points; "Significantly more powerful and intense than its Farr Rising sibling. This is the big dog of the trio, with everything needed for a 20-year future" - James Halliday, 96 points     $81.95 per bottle

2012 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir    "Here rich satsuma plum sets the pace for the bouquet and sumptuously layered palate; its length is prodigious, its balance impeccable, its purity shining like a beacon" - James Halliday, 98 points; "Stunning release of pinot noir ... This is beautiful. It's something of a watermark. It's spicy and lengthy and silken and complex. It's all that you'd want and hope pinot noir to be; and it will age... It has many facets yet it's also seamless. I kept thinking: there's lots of ashen, spicy, stalky notes here and yet they're so intricately woven. In short, it's stellar. It will be one of the star wines of the year" - Campbell Mattinson, 96 points; "It's quite full-bodied and highly structured on the palate... This is just a baby and needs time to blossom and display its full worth. It expands on the finish and has very good length. Lots of potential" - Huon Hooke, 94 points     $87.95 per bottle

2015 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir    "The palate is profound, powerful and concentrated, with a fleshy softness that is delicious. A lovely wine with a big future. Great structure and power. Magnificent now but cellar a year or two for best results" - Huon Hooke, 98 points; "Deeply coloured, depth and savoury complexity the cornerstones of great pinots. Spices from an Arabian bazaar intermingle sinuously with vibrant berry fruits, a skein of refreshing acidity adding another dimension to a wine that continuously draws saliva from the mouth. It is already a complete wine, its future measured in decades, not years" - James Halliday, 97 points; "Brilliant release from the Geelong stalwart... Evocative scents from the glass, takes you to butcher's shops and florists. Soft in the palate, spreads on sheets of fine tannin, mouthwatering acidity, spritely to finish. A quilt caught on the line in a southerly wind. Beautiful sweet-sour-savoury fruit flavours, pitch perfect spice and herbal nuance. Unreal feel here, so unique in its way. Savour it" - Mike Bennie, 95 points     $74.95 per bottle

2014 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir    "The bouquet exudes flowers (roses, violets), spices and a throbbing heartbeat of gently savoury dark fruits; the palate magically twists all these characters into a single silver-coated stream of red and blue fruits, the tannins no more than background haze, oak a slender frame. A gorgeous pinot of the highest category" - James Halliday, 97 points     $78.95 per bottle

2013 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir    "Another very different iteration of pinot, the multifaceted bouquet with both red and black fruits in play, the same perfumed vehicle as Farr Rising, the palate of remarkable elegance and finesse, with exactly the right balance between pure pinot fruit flavours and structure ex the whole bunches" - James Halliday, 97 points; "Twenty-ish year old vines. A healthy dose of whole bunches. Astute winemaking. One of the stars of Australian wine... fruit comes at you in waves: charcuterie, fistfuls of spice, sour cherries, earth and ash. It's quite a parade to step into. A river of nuance to be swept along by. I sat on this over the course of three days, more by accident than by intention, and it drank exquisitely throughout" - Campbell Mattinson, 96 points     $81.95 per bottle

2012 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir    "Lovely intense dark cherry flavours, fresh and bright and alive. Long carry and fine texture. Great power, purity and character. Delicious! And loads of potential for the future. (Is this the best Farr pinot made to date? Possibly...)" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "Savoury elegance and poise; red and black fruits - cherry to the fore - marry with notes of spice, stem and herb; this is more perfumed than Farrside, its destiny far distant" - James Halliday - 97 points; "Value is subjective, but such price-tags for middling pinot make this outstanding Geelong wine great value. Few Australian pinot noirs come near Sangreal's sumptuous, varietally pure, succulence. Strawberry, rhubarb, exotic spices and rich gamey/earthy threads lead seductively from the nose through a silky, seamless palate" - Ralph Kyte-Powell, 96 points; "This is an excellent release, bordering on exceptional... Effortless flavour, effortless complexity, effortless length. Cherry-plum fruit, refreshing but perfectly balanced acidity, silken mouthfeel and dried herb/spice notes. Oak is beautifully integrated. Wonderful drinkability. Not much more you can ask for" - Campbell Mattinson, 94 points     $85.95 per bottle

2010 By Farr Sangreal Pinot Noir    "The palate's very dense and very long, great depth, beautiful freshness as it builds, pure red and dark cherry flavour, oak adds weight but serves rather than dominates. Experience shines through here once again" - Nick Stock, 97 points; "A dark and brooding wine... the palate is dense and dark, big boned and muscular, with ample fine-grained tannins and bright acidity giving life to the finish; needs time to fully integrate and reveal the truth within" - James Halliday, 94 points; "The palate shows its whole bunch card early; slippery, glossy acidity driving the fern-tinged purple fruit long through the palate. There is a prettiness here, not quite delicacy, but a lifted, spirited charge across palate that is at once chaotic and yet flavour bounces within confines of supple tannins. It's a wilder expression here, but very attractive. Journey along with the wine" - The Wine Front, 94 points     $87.95 per bottle

2002 Callanans Road Pinot Noir        The Age Epicure ****    $19.95 per bottle  

2001 Cannibal Creek Pinot Noir        Jeremy Oliver 92 points; James Halliday - 91 points    $29.95 per bottle

2012 Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir   "Very pure and tense across the palate, finishes with almost the pucker of sourness, but it's not, it's just hewn to a rapier-point with succulent acidity. Smooth, flowing, light to medium bodied feel with graphite minerality laid under bright fruit flavours. Not for the hedonists as is, but for those seeking architecture in their drinking now and across some time" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 93+ points    $32.95 per bottle

2014 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir      "An alluring wine, with a plush and delicious mid-palate and a friendly, open nature. Fine tannins provide a gentle, supporting framework and oak and acidity are perfectly integrated. It is a wine of intense aromatic appeal and finesse, with excellent pinosity and presence" - Toni Paterson MW, 95 points & Wine of the Week   $47.50 per bottle

2014 Curly Flat Pinot Noir    "A pinot noir lit by a satin sheen of red berry fruits splayed across the mouth by juicy acidity and impeccably wrought tannins. Growing darker of fruit and broader of mid-drift as it opens, a lick of briar, wood smoke and truffle imbue a carnal edge to a shimmering, mellifluous finish. Delicious out of the gates, this pinot is a svelte, sumptuous glide across the senses" - James Halliday, 97 points; "There's plenty of richness here. Plenty of flow. And yet it's varietal, fragrant, complex and savoury-slanted. We're onto a good thing here... Mouthfeel is satiny; length is assured. Not a hair out of place. And plenty of excitement factor" - The Wine Front, 95 points"    $49.95 per bottle

2013 Curly Flat Pinot Noir    "We're in good form here. The power, the delicacy, the yin, the yang. Slippery, satiny mouthfeel, loads of spice, sweet-sour cherries, cream, cranberry, a carousel of savoury flavour, and tannin, twirling through the finish. Really very good" - The Wine Front, 95 points; "The colour is great, the palate abuzz with energy and activity; red fruits, complex tannins, good acidity and obvious French oak all compete for front of stage, but it's a case of one in, all in. In the longer term, fruit will become the major player" - James Halliday, 95 points"    $51.95 per bottle

2012 Curly Flat Pinot Noir    "The fragrant bouquet leads into a supple, full-flavoured (cherry/plum/ spice) palate with immaculate length and balance. Will stand tall against its forebears" - James Halliday, 96 points; "An outstanding release from Curly Flat. Silken, highly aromatic, has fruit depth and yet it's light on its feet, racy almost, and correspondingly lengthy. This is a Curly Flat Pinot Noir for the true believers. Fleshy, succulent, deep, smooth and spicy. A standout" - The Wine Front, 95 points; "Quite complex and inviting. A delicious wine with lots of fruit sweetness and charm. Clean and fragrant, light to medium-bodied, but intense and stylish... Totally yum" - Huon Hooke, 95 points; The 2012 Curly Flat pinot noir was awarded the highest individual score (95+ points) of 71 Australian pinot noirs submitted for peer review; "We have an amazingly lingering Pinot that delivers a long, seductive palate, gentle and reserved. A very fine wine which will age gracefully. Fantastic; oozes class" - Roger Jones, Decanter - 19.0 points out of 20; "Alluring perfume: shy and interesting. Complex poached strawberry and cranberry palate laced with fennel and five spice. Delicate and harmonious, unfolding gradually with a building presence. Lovely, beautiful, elegant wine. Truly ethereal" - Justin Knock MW, Decanter - 19.0 points out of 20; "Super-juicy fresh succulence, elegance and weight with real finesse behind the tannins" - Anthony Rose, Decanter - 18.5 points out of 20"    $59.95 per bottle

2004 Dalrymple Pinot Noir     Wonderful food wine, archetypal Tasmanian pinot    $34.95 per bottle

2008 De Bortoli Yarra Valley Pinot Noir     "Attacks deep and silking... Super sexy and mouth-filling" - Tim White, 97 points; PINOT NOIR OF THE YEAR - The Big Red Wine Book; "A beautiful version of Australian pinot noir - light but rich, with no shortage of strength and power" - Campbell Mattinson/Gary Walsh; "Has distinct Burgundian overtones, the palate showing all the precision that winemaker Steve Webber works so hard to achieve, and remarkable for its length" - James Halliday, 95 points; "One of the great bargains of Australian Pinot... sensational persistence and complexity...

Black and red cherries. Echoes of brandied cherries. Gorgeous wine. It seduces today with its finesse, but has the power and structure to take considerable age, too" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "If you're looking for elegance, delicacy and restraint, then you'll be well pleased" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, 94 points   $49.95 per bottle

2012 Dog Point Vineyard Pinot Noir       Winner of three trophies at the prestigious 2014 Six Nations Wine Challenge including BEST WINE OF SHOW - "the greatest pinot noir yet seen from Marlborough, a wine that takes power and density to a new level"; The bouquet is impressive and loaded with rich, ripe, black cherry fruit, the palate likewise rich and concentrated, full-bodied and sweetly-fruited, but it's all balanced by good tannins and excellent structure. A glorious wine, very Burgundy-like" - Huon Hooke, 96 points; "This is seriously impressive... it's concentrated and full-bodied with ample tannins and great structure" - Ralph Kyte-Powell, 96 points   $42.95 per bottle

Red and black cherry and berry fruits are seamlessly woven with exotic spice and understated violet nuances, supported by silky tannins and well-integrated acidity. An enticing Block 5 with great potential" - Tyson Stelzer, 97 points & Top 20 Wines over $100; "This has a bold, voluminous, aromatic nose with red fruits, subtle herbal and whole bunch aromas, all quite in context and balance, lovely floral detail and emerging undergrowth complexities. Rich and lush on palate, the red fruit flavours are sweet and juicy. Bright acidity lifts the fruitiness and enlivens the mouthfeel. This is supple and elegant with its richness. Quite exuberant for its relatively stylish and elegant size" - Raymond Chan, 19.5- points out of 20; "A little reticent and broody at this youthful stage, with faint notes of pomegranate, red cherries and raspberry leaves plus a touch of forest floor. Light to medium-bodied, it offers restrained red berry, floral and earth laced flavors with very finely grainy, silky tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with great length" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, 93+ points  $119.00 per bottle

It's wonderfully pure, impeccably fresh, enticingly complex and magnificently alluring" - Tyson Stelzer, 96 points & Top 20 Wines over $70; "Full, deep and dense, this has weight and mouthfilling presence. Dark-red fruits prevail with herb and stalk interest. The mouthfeel is supple, but reveals a firm core with fresh, lacy acidity. This has a long finish with undergrowth nuances to the fruit.

One of the greats" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, 96 points; "After prolonged airing: a powerful pinot of wonderful flavour: tight, firm and full in the mouth with real density and gravitas" - Huon Hooke, 95 points; "Freycinet Vineyard does not disappoint with the outstanding 2012 Freycinet Vineyard Pinot Noir. It shows immense depth and complexity with grand cru-like poise... The palate has abundant flesh and depth with deep-set tannins secured below bright yet weighty, dark cherry fruit. Terrific volume all wrapped neatly together into an exhilarating finish. It is deceptively elegant, such is the balance. This is shaping up as the best Freycinet Pinot ever' - Nick Stock  $67.95 per bottle

2015 Giant Steps Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir    "Significantly deeper colour than prior vintages, likewise depth of fruit; the bouquet and palate are driven by black and red cherry fruit of exceptional generosity but with an unusual touch of dark chocolate. Small wonder Giant Steps says this is its best vintage yet" - James Halliday, 97 points; "The palate is awash and ablaze, bright and lively, shows a flighty sheet of tannin that drapes across the mouth then starts to tug like a fist closing on silk. The finish is pulled tight with that fine tannin, caraway seed spice, light herbal notes. It's beautiful, wonderful drinking, so gluggable, so complex in its nature and presentation, so much to enjoy" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 96 points     $49.95 per bottle   

2015 Giant Steps Lusatia Park Vineyard Pinot Noir    "Superb colour; the ultra-fragrant/scented bouquet is picked up unceremoniously by the brilliant palate and dispatched to the boundary. Takes the concept of elegant generosity to another level with more movement in the chorus of red fruit flavours than you might think possible. Combines elegance with spicy, savoury intensity" - James Halliday, 97 points; "Of the Giant Steps 2015 single vineyard pinot noirs this feels like the one with a touch more grunt, a little wild streak, sniffs of ferrous things in dark cherry, kirsch, briar. Deeply flavoured and then as the finish starts it kicks in with another burst of bright fruit - it's like the wine is bucking in the palate, yet set on impossibly supple curves. Floods the palate with cherry fruit, spice, herb, pomegranate acidity and barely there tannin. Unreal wine. Unreal" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 96 points     $49.95 per bottle   

2015 Giant Steps Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir    "Another take on this great vintage, with savoury, spicy aromas and flavours surging over the bouquet and palate alike, putting whole bunch fermentation up in giant neon letters. The tangy, herbal, forest floor characters will always be the raison d'etre of the wine, and I hope I'm around to see how this evolves over time" - James Halliday, 96 points; "This wine is 100% whole bunch too; and it's formative in this wine. It's what I called 'the most captivating' wine... Haunting perfume of undergrowth, decaying flowers, pot pourri, rose water, pickled cherries, pepper, earth. It's elemental, guttural and wild to inhale. The palate has a swirl of dark cherry fruitiness, but again, savoury, earthy, briary character takes over. It crackles and swerves in the palate - there's juiciness but its ribbed with tannin and feels alive with crisp acidity. Long, so long, untamed, unkempt, but beautiful in its sweeping expression. Stains the glass with primal, sexual scent. A broad rugged landscape painted in detail. It's unbelievably good wine and will mature so, so intriguingly and well" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 96 points     $49.95 per bottle   

2015 Giant Steps Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir    "Here, generosity takes the stage with richness and tannins woven into the superabundant red and black fruits by invisible mending. A brilliant wine by whatever standards you may choose" - James Halliday, 97 points; "Superb. Such volume of perfume too. Palate has an almost tactile white pepper dusting, feathery and suede tannins build that tactile feel, the wine draws long on an sleek elastic band of juicy, bright cherry fruit, that spice, glossy acidity. It sits in palate even, fine, long, restrained, finessed. Cashmere on the tongue. Far out" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 96 points     $49.95 per bottle   

2012 Greystone Brothers Reserve Pinot Noir    TROPHY FOR BEST PINOT IN THE WORLD & TROPHY FOR BEST NEW ZEALAND PINOT (over £15) - 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards; The team of international judges said "The wine had all the classic textural and fruit hallmarks you could ask for in great Pinot Noir. A delicious wine with real presence, this is generous, rich and fleshy, with lots of bright redcurrant and raspberry aromas and concentrated plum, dark cherry and violet flavours. With an earthy character, smoky oak notes and an interesting savoury element, it's robust but with very supple tannins, a silky-soft mouthfeel and a finish full of Christmas pudding spices"; "An intense pinot with a great range of flavours including plum, dark cherry, leather, anise, wood smoke and toast. This is a complex wine with a great, mouth-filling and silken-smooth texture" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, 97 points *****    $89.95 per bottle   

2012 Greystone Waipara Pinot Noir    BEST NEW ZEALAND PINOT NOIR; "Opulent and powerful" - Judges at 2013 Air New Zealand Wine Awards; 2013 - Air New Zealand Wine Awards; "Silken-textured pinot noir with dark cherry, black-fleshed plum, subtle spice and nutty oak flavours. Elegant, ethereal wine showing surprising power and length. Distinctive and appealing" - Gourmet Traveller Wine, 96 points; "Medium-full bodied, well-concentrated flavours of red and black fruits unfold layers of complex savoury dark herb and earthy nuances entwined with sweet aromatic floral notes. The mouthfeel shows a dense core that unfolds smoothly with a seamless flow, and the palate is supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction. The richness and fruit sweetness is enlivened by fine acidity, and the flavours lead to a very long, sustained finish of savoury dark berry fruits. This is a richly concentrated, complex-nuanced, seamless Pinot Noir" - Raymond Chan, 19.0 points out of 20; "This is the wine that was awarded the Trophy for best pinot noir in last year's Air NZ judging - a correctly awarded Trophy if ever there was one... Bouquet epitomises what the grape variety pinot noir is all about, sweet haunting even caressing florals touching on violets, roses and boronia, then clear cherry fruit and gentle near-invisible oak. Palate emphasises the caressing thought, soft, velvety, seductive even... The fruit ripeness is pinpoint, red grading to black cherry with attractive acid balance. Total style is unarguably Cote de Nuits, and this wine is a real charmer. It is so rich that the fruit sweetness continues right through to the tail, and the wine thus seems sweet to the finish... in both practical terms and classical European analysis terms this Greystone is for the moment the definitive New Zealand pinot noir" - Geoff Kelly, 18.5+ points out of 20; "Wonderfully attractive aromatics - fruity yet funky in an exciting and evocative way. Full bodied and creamy with black cherries and rose petals underpinned by a deep earthy savouriness and tannins that are remarkably silky and fine. Such a gorgeous texture to this wine" - Sue Courtney, www.wineoftheweek.com    $36.95 per bottle   

2011 Greystone Waipara Pinot Noir    "Pure, mouth-watering wine with bright, fresh and moderately intense flavours.

Savoury and seductive. Jump in" - Wine Orbit, 91 points; "This is a wine to sip and contemplate. The flavours are restrained - Christmas cake-like fruit notes and attractive oak-derived mocha are set against a backdrop of velvety tannins" - Cuisine Magazine ****    $32.95 per bottle   

2012 Helen's Hill Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir   "It is packed with luxurious dark cherry and plum fruit running in an unbroken stream through the bouquet, palate, finish and aftertaste. Exceptional pinot noir" - James Halliday, 97 points; "Proprietor Allan Nalder is, and I think rightfully, excited by the contribution his Pommard clones are making to Helen's Hill Pinot Noir... Medium weight, plums and cherries, good acid cut and attack with fine but firm powdery tannin framing up the wine beautifully. Muscular and intense, but not without charm. Long finish. Ooomph and chutzpah. Carries it off with style" - The Wine Front, 93 points   $34.95 per bottle

2010 Helen's Hill Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir    "... the lovely feminine feel of the Helen's Hill... Loved by the Panel for its subtleness and texture. Ripe, floral and fruit driven with a bright strawberry fruit core on the mid palate, plush and juicy on the back palate. Beautifully balanced with fine tannins and divine smoky oak, superb length and brightness" - Wine Selectors Tasting Panel & Bill Downie - Ranked 2nd out of 59 pinot noirs; "Estate-grown MV6, 113 and 114 clone grapes have come together in a top vintage to provide a pinot that has both depth and length to its display of dark plum and cherry fruit, French oak having its say, as do fine tannins - all in tune with each other" - James Halliday, 94 points   $34.95 per bottle

2015 Hoddles Creek Estate 1er Pinot Noir    "The bouquet is gloriously fragrant and flowery, the red and blue fruits immediately picked up by the palate which then moves on with its vibrant spicy whole bunch notes adding more layers to its seemingly endless finish" - James Halliday, 97 points & Special Value Wine; "This has clarity, precision and fairly glides through the palate. Red cherry, raspberry, dried roses, fine spicy biscuitty oak, clean earthiness, and almost a liquorice root succulence too, but throughout its signature is restraint and subdued power. Ultra-fine tannin shapes the wine surely like the firm stroke of an emery board, the acidity so pure and clean, and the finish long, crisply ironed and perfumed" - The Wine Front, 96+ points; "The wine is rich and fruit-sweet, ripe and concentrated with generous black cherry flavours, which are not that detailed as yet. It needs time to show its best, and has great potential" - Huon Hooke, 96 points   $55.00 per bottle

2014 Hoddles Creek Estate 1er Pinot Noir    "Stylish and convincing, red and purple fruits on the bouquet taking immediate control of the vibrant palate which swirls around the tip of the tongue, building layers as it progresses through to the tangy, lively finish. The whole bunch tannins are the touchstone of the wine" - James Halliday, 96 points; "You'd rarely go wrong with Hoddles 1er wines... Cherries and raspberries, sap and spice, certainly has an autumnal lilt with humus and a gentle smokiness, and oak adds a layer of cinnamon and vanilla perfume. Medium bodied, mineral feel with firm slaty tannin, clean acidity, raspberry flavour and pencilly oak in support. Finish is very good, with layers of tannin unfurling, and well etched acidity stretching it out. You can go for it now, but its best days are ahead of it" - The Wine Front, 95 points; "A smooth, sumptuous and velvety Yarra pinot whose deeply floral and faintly earthy perfume of black and red cherries and sweet cedary oak precedes a luscious, mouthfilling palate of medium to full body. Deep layers of juicy cherry/dark plum fruit knit tightly with fresh, polished oak and a hint of meatiness, all supported by a fine but firmish spine of gentle tannins. It finishes with genuine length and persistence. Excellent value!" - Jeremy Oliver, 93 points   $55.00 per bottle

2016 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir    "Hoddles Creek probably about the best $20 you can spend on Australian Pinot Noir. It's almost ludicrous... Light to medium bodied, fine sweep of emery board tannin, fine acidity, delicate flavour, bright and fine boned, with no annoying sweet and sour flavours, and a firm insistently tannic finish. Serious Pinot satisfaction here" - Gary Walsh, 93 points; "The bouquet is meaty, charcuterie and dark cherry-like, the palate similar with intense, refined, penetrative flavour and good length. Lovely pinot and great value" - Huon Hooke, 92 points   $21.95 per bottle

2015 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir    "Superb colour, both in hue and clarity; the perfumed bouquet of red berries and plums sets the scene for the perfectly balanced and very long palate, with a contrast between its juicy fruits and fine-grained tannins. This is a ridiculous bargain, whether enjoyed tonight or in a decade" - James Halliday, 96 points; "Light to medium bodied, with a tense almost sinewy texture, mass of fine-point tannin, pencilly 'mineral' feel and the tannin and sweet damp earth singing on the finish. Can't recall a better release of the Estate Pinot Noir. Incredible sophistication for its price" - Gary Walsh, 94 points; "This wine presents as mostly about simple, pure fruit and quality of tannin and texture. Those tannins are notable, glorious, etched with feathery detail, gently-gently builds to a light pucker that dries the palate perfectly. Superb. Flavours and aromas come with charisma of cherries, faint truffle, earth, light tobacco, but you go back for that palate feel, time and time again. Ludicrous price. Must buy. Must share" - Mike Bennie, 93 points   $23.50 per bottle

2014 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir    "Quite simply, it's a beautiful wine to drink. Buy some, buy lots. It's such a charming drink. Ripe but savoury, spicy but rich with succulent appeal. One sip and you just want to settle back and go on with it. Cherries, dry leaves, some mint, the sweet smoky spiciness of oak. Sourness, just a touch. Pinot noir to the Nth degree. High value? Yes. Again" - Campbell Mattinson, 93 points; "As always, Hoddles Creek Estate pinot represents one of the great wine bargains of Australia. Just one sniff had me hooked. Smelling like a fistfull of squished cherry, strawberry and raspberry along with earth and spice, it's layered and complex. That's even before the flavour hits. It's smooth and bursting with elegant flavours similar to the aromas. There's energy, subtle structure and the berry flavours fan out. I've tasted over a decade of these wines and they age tremendously, too. Step right up" - Ben Thomas, The 24 Best Value Wines of 2015    $24.50 per bottle

2013 Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir    "Hits the bullseye; barely any need to go past the plum and cherry fruit of the bouquet to assess its quality; the perfectly balanced and very long palate is every bit as impressive. There's no greater value on the market, and it will become even better with 3+ years in bottle" - James Halliday, 95 points; "Cracking pinot noir... Tight and disciplined but champing at the bit through the finish. Outstanding release from Hoddles Creek Estate" - Campbell Mattinson, 94 points   $25.50 per bottle

It offers sour cherry varietal aroma, foresty notes and a whisper of gamey mystery. Silky and supple in the mouth, there's good intensity, yet it's light and fresh, with a gentle signature of very fine tannins, a sustained, fragrant finish, and an amazingly low price tag" - Ralph Kyte-Powell, 93 points & WINE OF THE WEEK; "Really happy with the 2012, think it's probably our best since 2008. Better balanced than 2010, but has the nerve of 2008. Agree, in twelve months it should be singing" - Franco d'Anna, Winemaker; "One of the most eagerly-awaited wines of the year, from a very good season... This release needs time - and given it, it'll be cracking. For all its reserve, it still manages to ooze class" - Campbell Mattinson, 92+ points; "Friendly price, serious Pinot.... The finish is sustained and impressive. It just needs time. Big emphasis on the plus sign here" - Jeremy Pringle, 92+ points   $26.50 per bottle

A perfumed nose that gives way to subtle spices in a very feminine example of Tasmanian Pinot. Juicy, ripe fruit core, plush palate" - Wine Selectors Tasting Panel & Bill Downie - Ranked 3rd out of 59 pinot noirs   $32.95 per bottle

2012 Kiritea Martinborough Pinot Noir  An absolute steal for the price, stands up tall against much more expensive pinot noirs from Martinborough; "From fruit grown out on Te Muna Road, this has a wealth of dark fruits and saffron, mocha and chocolate.

2009 Kooyong Estate Ferrous Pinot Noir   "Sometimes you taste a wine that's so thrilling, you're busting to tell wine lovers about it so they can participate in your excitement... my top pointed wine in a blind line-up of two dozen high-reputation pinots... has excellent depth in the moutth... a mouth-wateringly powerful pinot noir" - Tim White, 97 points; "A thrilling wine to taste... the most pure and pinot-like of the three Kooyong single-vineyard pinots" - Nick Stock, 96 points; "The palate opens with supple plum fruit then moves to a move savoury, authoritative finish" - James Halliday, 96 points; "Its modest alcoholic strength will help this powerful young pinot to flesh out slowly and with balance...

It's fragrant and spicy, with plenty of tangy acidity" - Jane Faulkner  $74.95 per bottle

This in turn leads to good length and texture" - James Halliday, 94 points; "This Gippsland vineyard clearly grows good pinot noir. The complexity is there. It just needs time to build and grow and mature... If you cast a wide net you'll reel in a wide variety of flavours and scents. Plenty of tang. Assorted goings on.

Wonderfully expressive and hugely appealing" - Wine Orbit, 96 points; "It is fragrant, sweet-fruited and concentrated, with deep, ripe plum, cherry and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity, and fine-grained tannins. Still youthful, it's an age-worthy, very harmonious wine" - Michael Cooper*****; "The fruit is softly rich and luscious, and flows effortlessly, supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction and a refined structure.
