Reviews of the 2010 Ingram Road Pinot Noir included below;

"92 Points. The wine opens with strong, bright purple-red. This is an excellent pinot noir at the give-away price, benefitting from the very good growing conditions of the season, with French oak and ripe tannins woven through red and black cherry fruit flavours. The finish is long and satisfying, and the wine will blossom over the next few years. Drink By: 2015"- James Halliday,

"A growing number of high-quality cheaper wines highlights Australia's maturing pinot growing and making skills. In this instance, Helens Hill Estate's second label, Ingram Road, delivers the aroma, flavour and structure of decent pinot at an affordable price. It has floral and cherry-like varietal aromas that flow through to a vibrant, medium-bodied palate, supported by fine, firm tannins and completed by earthy and savoury notes. Scott McCarthy makes the wine from estate grown fruit off 12- and 13-year old vines. It's an early drinking style enjoy any time over the next two or three years."- Chris Shanahan, Canberra Times, October 2011.

"Following traditional winemaking processes, utilizing full French oak maturation our Ingram Pinot Noir display rich varietal characters on the nose, sweet cherry and strawberry flavours on the front and mid palate with a savory, earthy (spicy) finish on the back palate. Thanks to the French oak, the wine has a wonderful full textural mouth weight and long lasting finish. The best Pinot Noir under $20.00? We would like to think so! " - Helens Hill Wines.
