AWARDS & REVIEWS

18.5 out of 20 Points - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

Brilliant ruby-red with some depth and transparency, slightly lighter on edge. The bouquet is fragrant and pretty, penetrating nuances of deep florals, sweet cherries, melded with red berries and red plums, along with subtle earth and crushed herbs. Medium-bodied, juicy core of cherries, red berries and plums aromas have lovely concentration, black pepper unfolding, alongside crushed herbs and deep florals nuances. Powdery tannin extraction provides the substance for the sweet fruit, enliven by lacy acidity. Spices lifted the palate to a brighter mouthfeel, added interest. This is a harmonious, elegant Pinot Noir with sweet red fruit and positive details on a fine tannin structure.

93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Gorgeously fruited and elegantly complex, the wine shows spiced cherry, thyme, smoked game and roasted nut characters on the nose. The palate displays lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by fleshy texture and polished tannins, finishing long and satisfying.

INSPIRATION

Alexander McQueen, the flamboyant fashion designer often referred to himself as the ‘Pink Sheep’ in the family. He was a troubled genius that suffered from depression and ultimately ended his life prematurely at age 40. He is the main inspiration behind the name & the driving force behind our community contribution collection PINK SHEEP. We donate 50c a bottle to 3 charities that encompass mental health, children, animals & the environment.
