Montalto Tuerong Pinot Noir 2022


I loved this deluxe. A seriously silky and complex Tuerong Pinot Noir from Montalto. Yes, yes and yes!

Montalto Merricks Pinot Noir 2022


Depth with a flirtatious prettiness. This Montalto Merricks is an attractive and savoury-driven Pinot with some oomph.

Burton McMahon Syme Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022


Spicier than its George's Vineyard sibling, this Syme Vineyard release from Burton McMahon is a superb Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. Give it a little more time to see it at its best as was proven over a couple of days of tasting.

Twin Valleys Rosé 2023


It seems getting the colour right with Rosé is now priority number one and all else should fall into place. This Twin Valleys has ticked the appearance box but the bottle shade isn't helping and the bottle pic above doesn't give a full account.

Seville Estate Old Vine Reserve Pinot Noir 2021


Gorgeous. It's got some depth yet it glides with absolute ease. Its class seeps from every pore. An excellent Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from Seville Estate.

Seville Estate Dr McMahon Reserve Pinot Noir 2021


Select. Precise. Earthy. Delicious. That's it in a nutshell. A thought-provoking and well-made Pinot Noir from Seville Estate. The critical factor here is that it is not a wine for now. Tuck it away and forget about it. Let ageing and the glamour of excellent winemaking do their thing.

That steady and calm yacht cruising along on clear waters, that's what this Pinot Noir is. What a beauty!

Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir 2021


This Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir 2021 has a weight that matches the Torbreck portfolio perfectly. Acquired by Torbreck a few years ago, if you like your Pinots loaded with oak and heft, this is for you. If you like 'em pretty and lack patience, move on.

Montalto Estate Pinot Noir 2022


A Pinot that just gets in deep. The feel and flow lend themselves to a D&M with the one you love. The sophistication, smooth lines and that little dancy beat, count me in.

Strawberries and cherries are all the rage and the slurpability factor is super high. There are cool wine bar vibes about this Montalto Pennon Hill Pinot Noir.

Castle Rock Estate A and W Pinot Noir 2022


Don't overlook the Great Southern region of Western Australia if you love your Pinot Noir - there are some gems to be uncovered. I was super impressed by the Castle Rock Estate Diletti and this A&W will be sure to sweep you off your feet too.

Castle Rock Estate Diletti Pinot Noir 2022


This Castle Rock Estate Diletti Pinot Noir is quite the step up from the entry level wine in the range of three. Sleek with polished edges, I found it irresistible.

Castle Rock Estate Pinot Noir 2022


Here we have a Pinot Noir from Western Australia's Great Southern region. It's a tidy drink with a respectable length.

This is a really good expression of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from a challenging vintage. Well played Soumah.
