Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2013
"5 Stars. Very dark, deep ruby-red colour with black-purple hues, a little lighter on rim. This has an elegantly proportioned bouquet with firmly concentrated aromas of ripe dark red berries and plums infused with iron-earth minerals and complexing savoury dark herbs, liquorice and reductive elements. Some cherry liqueur nuances emerge with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is very tightly concentrated with intense flavours of ripe dark raspberries, black cherries, liquorice and minerals. Layers of spicy herbs and iron-earth unfold, adding complexity. The fruit is supported by significant extraction, the tannins firm and fine-grained, providing real linearity. Discreet, lacy acidity lends energy and drive, carrying the wine to a very firm, lingering finish of raspberry and cherry liqueur along with tarry minerals. This is a very tight and concentrated Pinot Noir with raspberry and cherry liqueur flavours, earth and mineral complexity and a firmly textured, long finish. Match with lamb, beef, venison and hard cheeses over the next 7-10 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 10/5, 5, 115, 667, 777 and Abel, from vines planted in 1998, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented with a small percentage of whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine with a cuvaison of 24 days and aged 14 months in 24% new French oak barriques."

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2015
"5 Stars & 95 Points. Beautifully ripe, complex and fragrant, the bouquet shows ripe cherry, warm spice, dark mushroom and floral characters. It is concentrated and persistent on the palate, and displays excellent depth and roundness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. The wine combines sweet berry richness with sensual mouthfeel and elegant savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2022."
