Reviews:

"The fruit is bright and savoury, with some depth to the flavour profile, and it’s backed by high but balanced acid. The tannins are drying and add some astringency to the texture and finish. Overall, it’s a stylish pinot with well-integrated, harmonious components." Jan 2017, 4 to 5 stars

"...ruby colour; minerally, raspberry nose with a light barnyard note; light to medium-bodied, dry, Volnay style with a lovely mouth-feel; raspberry flavour with the fragrance of violets. Judicious use of oak. The best Pinot I’ve tasted from this winery." Tasted August 2016. 92 points  Tony Aspler

"2014 has yielded a lithe, sinewy, energetic pinot, very fine grained but with deceptive power and surprising length on the palate considering the modest 12.5% alcohol - the magic of PEC. A really lovely, elegant expression, and nicely priced, too." Tasted September 2016  90 points  John Szabo, winealign.com
