Michael Cooper 4½ stars.

Raymond Chan reviews our 2011. Here are his tasting notes. Medium deep ruby red colour. Some evolution on the nose, sweet plum cherry and stewed berries, the palate, however has more freshness than the nose, juicy red fruit, mild spices, rather good volume and density of fruit, fine length and some spicy notes on the finish, still rather youthful, should develop well.

Rebecca Gibb MW describes it like this: "A pretty and perfumed Pinot Noir, suggestive of a cooler vintage. This is a light bodied wine with a delicate frame. Expect floral and violet notes, with a spicy note and fine chalky tannins. It is unfined and unfiltered so you're getting all the goodness of its pure fruit."
