'Typifies cool-climate SA pinot in its delicious wild-berry & redcurrant fruit profile, modest 13% alcohol, bright acidity & minerality. 2020 spice & savoury nuances from ±9 months in 228L, 35% new. 10% foot-trodden wholebunch. For long ageing.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Elegant, refined and subtle, with a hint of good reduction, supple raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, some clove spice and texture from 10% whole bunches, fine, scented oak and filigree tannins. Graceful and well balanced. Drink 2021-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'Already the sixth vintage release from talented Berene Sauls, her new 2020 Pinot Noir displays an elegant mid-weighted palate texture and exhibits attractive lifted aromatics of raspberries and rose petal potpourri, orange peel, bramble berries and hints of pomegranates and blood orange. The palate is cool, sleek and texturally very polished with impressively fine-grained sappy tannins, soft harmonious acids and a layered finish boasting succulent smoky wild berry fruits, hints of stewed strawberries and exotic Christmas spices. Simply put, this is another very promising offering from Berene. Drink now and over the next 5 to 8+ years.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 93/100

'The 2020 Pinot Noir has a very attractive bouquet of brambly red berry fruit, red plums and raspberry preserve, beautifully defined and seamlessly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied, taut and fresh, with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a detailed, precise, slightly savory finish. Great structure and plenty of freshness here. Superb.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Nov 2021)

'The 2020 Pinot Noir expresses clean and lifted wild red fruit and cranberry and red plum aromas with hints of baking spices and cloves. Introducing a long, gentle palate with a savoury minerality. This is a graceful and age-worthy wine with an almost crystalline purity.' – Winemaker
