    September 23, 2020 - Well, well, second OZ pinot on the bucket list, same producer, same year, not exactly the same pleasure... as the wombat creek was a real hit !!

    The sexton shows nice intensity on the nose, with fruits and herbs, a certain spicyness, and some dark cherry, quite a powerful one with a really southern style, cool climate but something not burgundy... and palate is subtle, fresh, light and long, no harsh tannins, fruity and so delicate, a little warm but not overwhelming. Very nice wine indeed, Wombat shows more appeal right now...

    October 15, 2019 - Appearance : pale ruby, with legs

    On nose : medium+ intensity, red fruit : cranberry, strawberry, leafiness, peppery spiciness, subtle
    Of vanilla oak.

    On palate : dry, a bit rustic, med acidity, medium intensity, med body, sweet cherry candy, cranberry, peppery spiciness, med alcohol, soft tannin, with unexpectedly long finishing.

    Overall speaking is a good wine, much more complexity than the “Yarra Valley”. This wine got very significant cherry sweetness on front and mid palate. As a new world Pinot, I fully enjoy this. I suggest to drink it now in order to enjoy its remarkable red fruit flavour. Good match with marinated chicken or duck. Cheers!

    July 26, 2018 - Deloitte tasting.

    Sweet candy raspberry and strawberry, a whole bunch stem note that is well-judged and balanced; light to medium bodied, bright red fruits, some fresh herbs, driving acid on finish. Slight spirity and confected notes slightly detracts.
