96 points James Suckling: "Very complex, complete and convincing Bannockburn pinot that delivers a fascinating array of pure red cherries, sappy and spicy complexity and a beautifully arranged palate that has long, fleshy and silky fruit presence. Exceptional pinot. Drink now. Screw cap. (12/17/18)"

93 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$80 list] This vintage of proprietor Sam Neill's premium organically farmed Pinot is, for the moment, young and reductive, a sturdier wine that we've seen, but one that should reward time in the cellar. Rather than the broody, oniony aromas associated with reduction, this version emphasizes the wine's vegetal and herbal characters: green bell pepper in a sea of freshly plucked, earthy herbs, brambly berries and wildflowers. Streaks of minerals appear as the wine opens. Taut, spicy, chalky tannins grip the tongue, but a river of juicy fruit washes it away, ready for the next sip. Drink 2021–2030. Alcohol 12.5%. (May 2020)"
