97 Points - Magdalena Sienkiewicz "The fruit comes from a vineyard planted in 1983 at the elevation of 430 metres. The clone is MV6 - a ‘mothervine,’ also referred to as the heritage clone - a vinestock which was originally taken from cuttings first planted at Mount Pleasant in the 1920s. After taking the first sniff, my immediate reaction was that this is so Eastern Peake. Those characteristic briary notes dominate the perfume with a waft of hedgerow fruit, damson plums, sour cherry and soy. The palate reveals a more savoury character, although it doesn’t fall short of the intense briary fruit. The palate builds, seemingly endlessly, with a touch of smokiness lingering on the finish. This is a very different, distinctive Pinot Noir which is patiently waiting to be discovered. Sampled using Zalto Burgundy glassware on opening and again on the following day. Decanting for 2 hours should be sufficient enough to unveil its complexities."

"Eastern Peake was a small project that evolved from very humble beginnings. Dianne Pym and Norman Latta purchased their property in the late 1970s in the tiny township of Coghills Creek, Western Victoria just 25 km north west from the City Of Ballarat. The idea was to build a Mud Brick home, grow and make all of their own food to be self sufficient on the land and escape from Melbourne, where Norman had grown up. They successfully built their own home, grew vegetables, had livestock on their beautiful piece of land over looking the Creswick Valley to the east with a dramatic backdrop to the west with the Granite outcrop of Eastern Peake on Mount Bolton...
