Densely coloured, perfumed with lifted dark berry fruit on the nose with hints of spice and savoury characters. The palate shows plums and cherry fruit, spicy notes and ne tannins. Nice subtle integrated oak and a long finish. "The 2014 vintage (****) is a deeply coloured, rich blend of grapes from Bendigo (The Canyon Vineyard), other parts of the Cromwell Basin and Alexandra. It has strong plum and spice avours, with ripe, supple tannins, oak complexity and a persistent finish."Michael Coopers Wine Guide 2016
A single vineyard wine made exclusively from The Canyon Vineyard at Bendigo and labelled as The Canyon only in vintages when it is exceptional. Beautiful floral aromas with elegant berry fruits, spice and dried herbs. The palate is elegantly opulent with ripe fruits, great acidity, ample tannins and excellent length. Remarkably ageworthy. When opened in its youth, The Canyon Pinot Noir may take a little time in the glass to unveil the full depth of flavours and complexity.5 STARS - Raymond Chan 19/20: "This is a beautifully elegant, ne-textured aromatic Pinot Noir with vitality and minerality" Dec 20145 STARS - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit: "Stunning and perfumed... at its best 2015-2020". Dec 2014
A single vineyard Pinot Noir hand picked from The Canyon Vineyard, vinified separately and aged in French barrels. The bouquet is lifted rich and burgundy like. The palate is rich, textured and complex with dark cherry fruits and spicy, savoury notes. Very long and complex. INTERNATIONAL PINOT NOIR TROPHY - Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2012"Burgundian in style, with beautiful oral aromatics, savoury, gamey depths and undercurrents of black cherry and rhubarb. Big yet elegant and stylish, with hints of milk chocolate."TROPHY - The International Wine Challenge, London 2013"A beautiful nose of ripe cherry, chocolate, dark fruit and spice leads on to a concentrated palate with a distinct streak of minerality. It is well balanced and complex, with a fantastic lifted nish and a generously grippy length."Gold Medal - Royal Easter Show, New Zealand 20115 STARS - Raymond Chan5 STARS - Bob Campbell MW, 94/100, August 20135 STARS - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, 95/100, Dec 2014"This is spectacularly great drinking. With lovely maturity, the wine shows rich dark fruits with earthy mushroom, game and cigar notes on the nose. The palate is expansive and richly textured with layers of fabulous avours, elegantly framed by seamlessly woven tannins. At its best: now to 2018."
