TASTING NOTES

Using the finest fruit from the select blocks at our vineyard in Yarra Glen, this wine has deep fruit flavours, fine tannin and the silky-smooth palate we expect of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.

SEASON

The 2017 Yarra Valley season was one out of the box - just enough and not too much of everything. The moderate season allowed the vines to ripen 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. This is a vintage in which the true personality of the vineyard takes centre stage.

WINEMAKING
