2015 Hillside Haven Pinot Noir
Of all the Lethbridge Pinots, this has the most colour, the sweetest fruit and richest flavour; fruit comes off a vineyard in Anakie. Floral with dark cherries and raspberries, a whisper of balsam and wood spice with poised tannins and fresh acidity to close just lacks some oomph midway. But a lovely wine. 94 points, Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion

2015 Suma Park Pinot Noir
In '15, Ray Nadeson produced 4 single vineyard pinot noirs with identical winemaking, fascinating insight into the vineyard. The 50% whole-bunches didn't gel with Springbank but they do here. Heady aromatics of Middle Eastern spices, whole bunch freshness, medium-bodied, chalk-like tannins some grip and super sapid. In a word, delicious. 94 points, Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion

2015 Hat Rock Pinot Noir
As with all the single vineyard pinot noirs in 15, a mere 600 bottles and 50% whole bunches in the ferment. Noticeably stemmy adding cranberry tartness, an earthy, twiggy character and black tea, not everyone will latch onto it. Very fresh with morello cherries and stewed rhubarb and crunchy lemony acidity, there's a slight disconnect with the tannins and a bitter finish but it has a sweet spot. 91 points, Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion

2015 Geelong Pinot Noir
Not that this is for guzzling but it has a thirst-quenching quality about it. It's the acidity and the abundance of juicy, tangy cherry fruit with whole-bunch qualities and it's overall freshness. It's by no means simple, the tannins are supple, the body compact, oak part of the equation but not dominating and the feeling this is special. 95 points, Jane Faulkner, James Halliday Wine Companion
