    May 28, 2018 - Pinot Noir at Moncur (Bistro Moncur, Sydney): Polished oak, marzipan, rich, ripe berries and plentiful spice…but again it's a touch sour on the palate with tight drying tannins that close things down. Nah.

    October 23, 2016 - Deep red but quite translucent. Beautiful lustre.
    Dark cherry, cool and refined, hint of saltiness, cherry stone spice.
    Very finely structured, delicate even, a nice blend of pure red and black cherry fruit with just a light undercurrent of whole bunch spice, very well balanced. Soft fine tannins but they do add some chalky grip, reasonable acidity, but a little short nonetheless. Nice flavours but a little lacking in stuffing.

    October 9, 2016 - Pinotpalooza (Carriageworks, Redfern): Candied red cherry fruit, cream, slight sweet spice…more of the same on the palate but the fruit strays more savoury. There is a pleasing freshness as well. Okay
