2017 Fetherston Pinot Noir
'Hand-picked, 67% whole bunches in the ferment, 30 days on skins, matured in French oak (25% new). Wow. This doesn't waste a second in establishing its savoury pedigree. Those with a whole bunch preference (like myself) will enjoy the wine greatly, the long period on skins adding to the enjoyment and complexity.'
- James Halliday, Wine Companion
'Raspberry, brown spices, almost chocolaty, with a mint and dried herb perfume. Medium-bodied, graphite tannin, good amount of crunch and savoury spice, rhubarb, cool acidity, generous flavour and a long dry wheaty amaro tinged finale. Earth and grip. A lot of character and interest. And as a closing remark, I really like how emphatic it is through the finish.'
- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
