THE FINER DETAILS

TASTING NOTES

This is a typical cool climate Yarra Valley Pinot Noir with aromas of cherries and summer berries and hints of spice and oak. The palate is bright with red fruits and soft tannin. This is a versatile wine that will match well with many foods; try it with a charcuterie platter, pizza/pasta and porcini mushrooms or barbecued meats.

VINTAGE

2017 was a cool vintage and harvest in the Yarra Valley was up to two weeks later than the long-term average. A long slow ripening period allowed gradual development of complex flavours and retention of good levels of natural acid.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was destemmed then vinified in static temperature-controlled fermenters. The wine was matured for 10 months, a portion in a mix of old and new French barrels and a portion in tank with quality French oak staves.
