    Pipers Brook has long made compelling, sinuously tannic and long-lived Pinot Noirs over the course of their history. In fact, those from the mid to late '90s remain among the best ever tasted from Australia, at least in lieu of a Burgundian mould when excessive sweetness is not striven for. It is rewarding to see that the range is on song. This is extremely delicate, yet in a way forceful, with pumice-like, powdery tannins defining a pinot of riveting, cerebral texture. It is across this spider web of chiffon that sour red cherry, strawberry, vanilla and satsuma plum have their way, ever so gradually seeping across the textural, taut mid-palate. An excellent first cab off the rank, strongly reminiscent of mid-tier Burgundy. This will age very well, belying its initial lighter complexion. Drink By: 2028. Score - 94.
