“96 points”

“Pommard clone (D4V5), hand-picked (Feb 19) and sorted, matured 14 months in French barriques (40% new). Clear, deep crimson-purple hue; dark berry and plum aromas flow seamlessly into a perfectly proportioned palate; fruit, oak, fine tannins all contribute to a complex pinot. 12.8% alc; screwcap. 96 points; drink to 2023.
James Halliday, The Weekend Australian Magazine, March 2016

“94+ points”

“Helen’s Hill single clone reserve wines are very good wines, and very interesting in their focus on these single clone expressions – here, the D4V5 clone is singled out, as compared/contrasted to the Old Block Reserve Pinot Noir which is made from the MV6 clone. The Star Wars robot sounding clone D4V5 is typically known for its power and depth of flavour, though here some elevation and the cooler site likely downplays some of that impact, which is kind of nice. It’s hand-picked, hand-sorted for best bunches, sent to (40% new) French oak for 14 months.

Silky, supple, fantastic pinot noir. It’s gossamer delicate in texture, fine, long, sleek and yet imbued with pretty pinot noir fragrance and flavours. Set to red cherry, red fleshy plums and perky spice, it wafts from the glass and sits like a soft sheet in the palate, but there’s fine wood and tannin to accompany. Indeed, for all that this wine is breezy and fine, there’s plenty of complexity here too. Right on.”
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, July 2016
