2013 Ocean Eight, Pinot Gris - FIVE STARS, 95 POINTS.
...has fresh stone-fruit that rides above its funky complexity. There's a chardonnay-like character to the wine with its depth of flavour, body and texture..."Exotic but still in the realms of pinot gris. Toasty nose with complexity and depth of aroma. Attractive, peachy, nutty tones, plus wonderful, texture and length. Very flavoursome with barrel and lees work adding complexity and interest. It shows clever and astute winemaking." The wine demands savoury food.

2012 Ocean Eight, Pinot Noir
"Ocean Eight's ascent to greatness continues here with a decidedly fragrant Pinot Noir. It has aromas of violets, blueberry, vivid cherry and plum, as well as more savoury underlying earth and spice tones. The palate has immediate flesh and weight, showing impressive volume and depth. It lunges through to a vibrant, driving finish which is fresh, silky and balanced." Nick Stock
2013 Wine Rules
2010 Aylward by Ocean Eight, Pinot Noir
"Mike Aylward raises the bar with his eponymous label increasing the fruit intensity and also the oak impact and the results are staggering. At three years old, this wine is still only a baby, as you would expect, but it shows signs of greatness in the glass. We are privileged to be able to pour this wine at Wine Rules, giving hundreds of people the opportunity to see what only a handful of journos and restaurateurs would ordinarily experience. Aylward proves that Grand Vin Pinot is alive and kicking in Victoria and I would be happy to pour this alongside New Zealand, Oregon and Burgundy's best bottles." Matthew Jukes
