James Halliday – A beautifully balanced and complete wine to either drink now or cellar so it garners more complexity. The former option is hard to beat, revealing plump plums and black cherries, layers of spice and integrated oak. Precision across the palate, raw silk tannins and a freshness to the acidity ensure there's a lingering quality. Jane Faulkner Published 12 August 2021
About This Wine
Violet perfumed nose, mixed cherry fruits with a pinch of aniseed spice. Cherry fruits explode on the palate then transform into the classic Pinot silky smooth palate. A medium-bodied yet powerful style so immediately delicious.
The Yarra Yering Pinot Noir is some of the oldest vines of their type in the Yarra Valley. A mixed planting of four clones was undertaken in 1969, then followed up with replication in 1981 at the top of the slope and 1984 at the bottom of the slope.
The grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight. Processing the following day along a fruit sorting table and destemmed gently into our signature “tea-chest” small fermenters. Stalks were added to some of the fermenters to contribute subtle structure, complexity and aroma. Working of the ferment by gentle hand plunging twice daily contributes to the soft fruit palate along with gentle pressing. Maturation for 10 months in all French barrels with 30% new and the balance older oak.
