"92 Points. Canberra District Pinot Noir is often overlooked for fancier regions, but a relatively long history with the variety does exist. Lerida has been making fine-boned, distinct Pinot wines and this an excellent omen for future potential. And great drinking" - Mike Bennie, WBM November 2013.

"I review two pinots today - this savoury, “serious” style from Lake George and a simpler, fruity one from Tasmania. Lerida’s shows the quite firm tannic backbone and rich texture of pinot built for complexity off low-yielding fruit. But it also reveals the character of a very cool growing season. This shows in the light body and reliance on structure and texture more than on fruit flavour. There may be latent fruit, waiting to emerge with bottle age. Or, on the other hand it may just be dilute because of the season, leaving a pleasantly savoury red without the depth and length we see in better seasons."- Chris Shanahan, http://chrisshanahan.com

"This wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from our vineyard at Lake George. The wine was matured in French oak barriques for 11 months prior to bottling. It shows cherry, red current, allspice, vanilla and gamey aromas. The red fruit on the palate is supported by savoury overtones and fine, well integrated tannins. This wine will continue to develop over the next 3-5 years." - Lerida Estate
