A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

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

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 13 - 17°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 10 years

TASTING NOTES

This is a typical Yarra Valley Pinot Noir with aromas of cherries and summer berries and hints of spice and oak. The palate has juicy red fruits and soft tannin.

SEASON

There were no major heatwaves in the 2018 season; nevertheless, it was a warm season overall and the harvest was a little early. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. An extended dry, mild patch over January and February was excellent for Pinot Noir, helping create excellent depth of flavour balanced with lively acidity.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was harvested in mid- February and was destemmed then vinified in open fermenters. The wine was matured for 10 months with French oak.
