19 points "Matt Dicey: "The single vineyard Pinot Noir wines are made when the fruit is expressive of the site. There was no Target Gully wine in 2007. This label has been a favourite for a number of people, with its spice and licorice character. The two 2007 single vineyard wines presented were very different. The Mt Difficulty ‘Long Gully’ Pinot Noir 2007 (18.5/20), made from vines planted in 1992, was very bright with cherry and red berry fruits, florals and some oak lift on a fine-grained, supple palate. Its floral delicacy and silken textures were very attractive. Following was the Mt Difficulty ‘Pipeclay Terrace’ Pinot Noir 2007 (19.0+/20), made from vines planted in 1995. Powerful and dense with firm dark fruit characters, this was dense and meaty, full-bodied and solid, with dried herb complexities. This was the more preferred wine of the pair for the group of tasters"." Best 2010-2013
