VINTAGE

2015 was a strong vintage in the Yarra Valley. Mild conditions in spring allowed excellent fruit set and yields were good. Continuing cool and mild conditions promoted good flavour development balanced with fine acid. It was generally dry and disease pressure was low. Our Yarra Valley Pinot Noir harvest began in late February.

WINEMAKING

This is a single vineyard, single clone wine (MV6). The fruit was destemmed and cold soaked before fermentation by wild yeasts in open fermenters. The ferments were hand plunged twice daily. The wine was matured in French oak barriques, about 40% new, for 10 months.
