WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
An outstanding vintage 
 
The art of assemblage

A harmonious balance of fine and elegant Wombat Creek fruit blended with the more generous and spicy flavours of Highbow Hill vineyard, vinified separately in hand-selected oak barriques and puncheons to create this silky, savoury, delicately spiced pinot noir from one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. This truly special wine is much more than the sum of its parts.

TASTING NOTES

A classic Yarra Valley Pinot Noir with signature herbal and savoury notes alongside bright berry fruits. The palate has excellent weight and fine tannin. From our vineyards at Yarra Glen and Gladysdale.

VINTAGE

The 2017 vintage was a classic one in which overall mild and stable conditions produced superb quality fruit and wines of great balance, finesse and longevity. Dubbed a “Goldilocks” vintage, there was just enough - and not too much - of everything. Vines ripened slowly, building great depth of flavour while retaining fine balance in sugar and acid. Harvest began in early-March, a little later than the long-term average and somewhat of a relief after the record-early vintage of 2016.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked in early March. It was destemmed then fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging and pumping over. The wine was matured for 10 months in a mix of old and new French oak barrels.
