A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“A true regional wine style, with fruit from premium vineyards on the valley floor and the Upper Yarra Valley.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 16 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 5 years

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.

SEASON

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.

THE REGION

THE REGION

Yarra Valley

One of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions, the Yarra Valley encompasses such diverse topography that it can produce premium quality fruit in a range of grape varieties.

With its stunning hills and dales ranged before a backdrop of blue mountains, elevations vary greatly. The climate is Mediterranean with a maritime influence from Port Phillips.
