Tasting Notes


Bright red with medium intensity.


This aromatically charged Pinot leaps from the glass displaying dark cherry, wild strawberry with underlying earthy savoury notes. The technique of whole bunch fermentation adds a gamey, stalky, complexity to the aroma.


The palate is medium-weighted with bright, jubey red fruits. These complex flavours are enhanced by a crisp zippy acid backbone, which promotes freshness.


Cellar for 3–5 years.



The 2021 vintage was one of the most difficult growing seasons experienced in the region in many years. With a number of large rainfall events and cool temperatures from February onwards, we utilised very careful vineyard management techniques to manage disease pressure and ensure optimum ripening of our fruit. Very selective handpicking was essential during harvest to ensure only high-quality fruit was received in the winery. The 2021 vintage produced wines with extremely elegant natural acidity, lower alcohol levels and vibrant, lifted aromatics. 


The fruit was very carefully and selectively hand-picked and sorted, then destemmed into an open fermenter, including 20% whole bunches for complexity and texture. Following a short cold soak, before ferment kicked off, the wine was tasted daily and plunged as required for 14 days then matured for eight months in new (25%) and one-year-old French barriques.

The West Australian Wine Guide 2023

From this eponymous pioneering Pemberton vineyard. It’s a joy to see this label thriving under the Fogarty Wine Group. This wine is packed with ripe pinot character from rhubarb to raspberry with a dusting of whole bunch spice and regional smoky notes. The palate is medium bodied and well calibrated to be plush and warming with precise fine tannins. Best for early drinking and can be enjoyed over the next 4 years. Top Rated.

James Suckling 2022

Aromas of sliced strawberries, grated nutmeg, moss and chicory root. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and texture. Bright and fresh with strawberry and cherry character. A hint of porcini at the finish. Subtle length here. Refreshing.

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2024

Light bodied and thoroughly delicious Pinot Noir. Opens with an earthy, sweet strawberry and dark cherry combo on the nose. Impressive palate with glazed cherry and subtle earthy minerally characters merging. The tannins are fine and slightly chalky with the oak well integrated. The firm spine gives purpose to drive through to the finish.

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2023

Typical, light bodied pinot noir but one with insistent and lingering flavours. There’s a nice chalky feel here with those cherry and strawberry characters evident on the nose and palate. Has a little trace of spice with slightly firm sinewy and chalky tannins adding steel to the core.
