Independant wine scribe Campbell Mattinson from www.winefront.com.au has also reviewed this great value Pinot Noir. Here is Campbell's review,
"This wine pulled a clutch of trophies from the 2011 Victorian Wine Show - which is not to be confused with the Royal Melbourne Wine Show - including the Big One, the coveted Wine of Show. Great effort for a $20 pinot.
I like it almost as much as the judges clearly did. It's a really nice wine. A great buying/drinking option. What sets it apart is its perfume - put your nose anywhere near it and receive a blast of gorgeous scent. Cherries, spice, undergrowth; the whole box and dice. It carries on faithfully from there in the mouth, and then finishes dry, savoury, and with a fair chew of tannin. Fun but serious. Essence of rose-petal flavour. I tasted this - without the chance to drink it - but gee it was hard to keep spitting it "
