Hand-picked, chilled immediately, cold soaked with 20% whole bunches for 5 days, open-fermented, hand-plunged every three hours, matured for 18 months in French barriques (33% new). Excellent colour.

2015 mt terrible pinot noir

“Jamieson Pinot Noir 2015. Estate-grown, hand-picked, clones 114, 115, 777 and MV6, three days cold soak in an open fermenter with 10% whole bunches, post-ferment maceration, matured for 18 months in French oak. The full crimson-purple colour introduces a very high quality, ultra-fragrant Pinot with the depth, complexity and length reminiscent Burgundies. Made with a sure touch. Screw cap. 13.5% alc. To 2030." 97 points

2014 mt terrible pinot noir

James Halliday:  "A bolshy pinot noir with a ton of personality, this alpine expression is hewn from low yields, maceration pre and post-ferment with a seasoning of stems and 18 months in French oak. Rich and moreish, with damson plum, mulch and cedar combining into a textural whole. The intensity of flavour is compelling, as are the layers, all auguring well for a bright future. Needs time. Screwcap. 13.5% al. To 2025." 95 points

2013 mt terrible pinot noir

James Halliday: “A powerful, impeccably balanced pinot, flush with red and black cherry fruit, with a gold-plated future.”  95 points

2012

pinot noir

James Halliday: "Provides a clear picture of the future of the 2013 with flowery, spicy aromatics and a clean-shaven palate of dark cherry and plum fruit, bedecked with fine savoury / foresty tannins and a very long, expansive finish. 13.5% alcohol. To 2022. 95 points

2011

pinot noir

James Halliday: “Light crimson-purple hue; a courageous approach to the problematic vintage; the bouquet is most attractive, and there are light globes of sweet cherry on the light-bodied, savoury/spicy palate. Definitely passes the test." 90 points

2010

mt terrible pinot noir

James Halliday: “From four estate-grown clones (114, 115, 777 and MV6) cold soaked (with 20% whole bunches) for five days before open fermentation, then eighteen months in French oak. The colour is still youthful and bright, with no hint of bricking; the bouquet is building spicy perfume along with still-primary fruit, the palate supple and fine, a hint of forest floor on the after-taste adding to the palate. Still has years of life." 95 points

 

Ben Thomas (The Weekly Review): “Frosts and bushfires have meant releases from this winery in the valley of the Jamieson River in the foothills of Mount Terrible have stuttered in recent years. This one is perfumed, with aromas of plum, strawberry, rhubarb, spice and raspberry plus stalky, sappy and earthy characters. The perfume flows through the mouth, along with a darker set of berry flavours and stewed plum, with prune-like intensity. Intensity builds and builds and there’s a nice grip and fresh berry and plums on the finish.”

Nick Munday (Canterbury Wines): “Very occasionally one comes across a wine from a hitherto unknown winery that blows one off one’s feet. Such a wine is the 2010 Mount Terrible pinot noir from a minuscule 5 acre plot at a thousand feet above sea level in the stunningly beautiful Jamieson Valley. John Eason, the winemaker, strives to produce a pinot noir in the style of the great French Burgundies, and he has gone a long way to achieving his goal with the release of the exquisite 2010 pinot. Fresh, tangy, savoury cherry and plum fruit, spice and briar aromas are mirrored in a vibrant and intense palate that is beautifully structured, long and lingering. The oak handling is impeccable. Oozes class, but with the best years in front of it.”

 

Phil Hude (Armadale Cellars): “If the superb Pinot Noir from Mount Terrible is anything to go by, the Victorian High Country could well be the next big thing when it comes to Pinot Noir. Mount Terrible Pinot Noir displays structure very few New World Pinots possess, yet never veers to over-extraction.”

2008 Ian Ridley Reserve Pinot Noir

James Halliday: “Bright, clear crimson; while relatively light-bodied, the wine delivers an expressive and complex bouquet of spiced dark berries, a message continued on the long, well-balanced palate. Delicious drinking now if you are so minded“ 94 points

Pinot Noir

James Halliday: “Excellent retention of red-purple hue; new generation French clones and MV6, plus sophisticated wine making have produced a very pure, highly focused razor sharp Pinot Noir, with a long palate and varietal definition" 95 points
