"It has amazing purity of rich fruit, showing aromas and flavours of ripe cherry and strawberry, exotic spices and autumn leaves. It's savoury and silky with firm structure and bright acidity. Superb! Drinking window 2018 – 2021. 94/100", Tina Gellie, Decanter online, tasted 23rd January 2018

Just a 3 hectare plot, with plantings of five clones of Pinot and seven or eight rows of Riesling. James Halliday described the Ashton Hills vineyard and Stephen’s efforts thus: "the most distinguished site in South Australia for Pinot Noir; Stephen’s unremitting attention to detail has made Ashton Hills the one Grand Cru of the state."
