2013 One Bunch Chardonnay review

“…a very good wine indeed. There is an impressive combination of ripe stone fruit/citrus notes, flint and struck match and a hint of creaminess…this would be a stunner with an old fashioned roast pork…”

2013 One Bunch Pinot Gris a smash hit

Well, if ever there was a wine we would have loved to have bins full of, it was this one! A beautiful wine in the Gris style, with just a hint of residual sugar to give it a full mouth-feel. Shattered that there was only ever a handful of it…


One Bunch Riesling 2012 is a treat!

It is exciting to have finally a Riesling! This is a variety that can last longer than most reds if it is cellared well, and our 2012 is no exception! A lovely floral nose and a palet of pear and green apple make this a lovely wine to have with seafood or anything spicy such as Chinese, Indonesian or Thai food.

2011 One Bunch Pinot Noir review

“This is the third release under the One Bunch label, and by far the best to date. …a wine that is drinking delightfully will in its youth with bright, forward fruit, spicy/savoury notes and some delicious softness on the Palete.”

The SMH & The Age Good Wine Guide 2012 – Review

2009 One Bunch Pinot $23
Given the good value tick, score of 90 points.

“A juicy, youthful pinot nose, with plenty of bright, ripe mixed-berry and cherry fruits, some baking spices and gentle cedary oak. Quite silky tannins, forward mixed-berry flavour and supple, curvy shape through the middle. Supple cherry fruits and light musk through the finish. Made for goodtime drinking.”
– quoted from The SMH & The Age Good Wine Guide 2012, Nick Stock.

2010 One Bunch Pinot
Given the good value tick,  and a score of 91 points.

“The same juicy and playful style as the 2009 wine here. This has nicely ripened cherry and mulberry fruit aromas, some redder fruits too, and a lick of spice. The palate’s mapped out with playfully chewy tannins, offering juicy, robust summer berry and plum-fruit flavours, and zesty acid crunch to close.”
– quoted from The SMH & The Age Good Wine Guide 2012, Nick Stock.


The Age Epicure – Review

…The wine has the Tasmanian stamp: aromatic, sweet nose with dusty beets, a palate that moves seamlessly from juicy fruit upfront to dry, briary, rhubarb and spicy red fruits, and has a lingering finish. A cool climate beauty.

– Jeni Port, Epicure, The Age, Tuesday June 14, 2011.


Pinot Shop, Launceston – Review

It is an aromatic, juicy, lively pinot that drinks very well now but the perfectly pitched acid will keep it going nicely in bottle for at least another 3 years.

– Michele Round, Pinot Shop, Launceston, Tasmania.


Pinot Unearthed Reviews – Tasmania

Tasting conducted in Hobart, 10/12/2010.

Review by Ben Edwards: Score 17.5/20

Bright colour; quite a hi-toned bouquet, showing vibrant almost sour cherry aromas; the palate is also crunchy and driven by acid and chewy tannins, drawing out the finish to a quite savoury and minerally conclusion; long and with latent power taking time to unravel.

One Bunch 2009 Pinot Noir review

It’s always exciting to see the launch of a new Tasmanian label, particularly one with as much promise as this; the first release from Gryphonwood Vineyards, whose vines are at Underwood in the Pipers River region. The wine gets is name because a poor crop meant “just one bunch” of fruit came through in 2009. The owners called on consultant winemaker Guy Wagner to create a blend and this shows immense promise. There’s a good balance between fruit and savoury characters and the wine, slightly spritzy on opening, gets better and better as it opens up. It was excellent after two days – and very food friendly. A label to look out for.
