About This Wine

Bright and spicy, our 2018 Pinot Noir is a wine that balances delicacy and finesse, with the sense of depth and complexity that old vines produce. The initial bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry and red cherry merges into more complex aromas of rose petal, cumin, liquorice and nutmeg, with a hint of earthy mushroom. The palate is full of crunchy red fruit, with subtle rose petal and spiced rhubarb flavours, but there’s also a deeply savoury layer bringing a real complexity to the palate. An almost indistinguishable line of acidity gives brightness, length and wonderful perfumed lift to the back palate. Lovely drinking now, but equally a wine to savour over the next 8-10 years. – Sandra de Pury

Yarra Valley Wine

The Yarra Valley wine region is the most important area of wine production in Victoria today, and with its proximity to Melbourne, also the most visited in the state.

Yarra Valley is split into the Upper Yarra and the valley floor. The Upper Yarra is cooler in climate due to its elevation and coupled with younger, fertile, red soils produces most of the region’s notable varietals: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The valley floor is warmer and has predominantly grey soils with pockets of granite and limestone.

Pinot noir has long been considered a notoriously difficult variety to grow. However, the cool climate and longer growing seasons of the Yarra Valley allow the fruit to develop full flavoured and ripe character.

Chardonnay in the past has long been associated with a deep oily, buttery style that experiences full malolactic fermentation and great amounts of oak. This style has since fallen out of favour and wine makers in the Yarra Valley have capitalized on this trend to produce leaner, acid driven Chardonnays that are closer in style to those from Burgundy.

The Wine Front – Plum, red fruits, plenty of spice, sarsaparilla, smoky and autumnal. Medium bodied, sappy and red fruited, brown bread, layers of spice, bright minerally acidity, firmish kitten’s tongue tannin, and a spicy, ashen and wheaten finish of excellent length and precision. There’s an abundance of character and interest packed into the bottle, and more to come, I’d suggest. 93+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
