Tasting Notes


Bright, deep crimson.


Intensely perfumed dark cherry, black tea, dried sage and amaro aromas.


Seductive red fruits envelope a tightly woven line of graphite and bergamot tea, with lingering dried herbs, orange peel, and cherry fruit. Elegant whole bunch tannin and oak spice linger on the palate, with vibrant acidity exuding class and poise.  


Will reward careful cellaring of seven to ten years.



One of the coolest and wettest Octobers in history hampered flowering and reduced yields by 30-40%. A cooler ripening period produced wines with intense fruit concentration, slightly higher acidity, and greater elegance and finesse.


Hand-picked Pinot Noir was de-stemmed into ten 1.5T open top fermenters with the addition of up to 100% whole cluster. Alcoholic fermentation was left to occur naturally with no additions. Cap management was exclusively pumping over twice daily to wet the cap and minimise over extraction. Time on skins was 21 days. The resulting wine was pressed directly to 500L French oak puncheons (15% new) where it rested with minimal intervention for 13 months prior to bottling.

Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Magazine 2024

The most sublime Australian Pinot Noir I have ever tasted. After I named the 2020 vintage of Pinot Noir of the Year in the Halliday Wine Companion, if it wasn't already clear that the old Pinot vines of the Lowestoft vineyard are among the finest in the country, the 2023 Jimmy Watson for the 2022 confirmed it. There is a resolute confidence to this site, intricately preserved by Liam McElhinney and his team. Deep black fruit complexity, lifted violet and rose petal perfume, evocative exotic spice, velvet-fine tannins and brilliant natural acidity.
