Enjoy the Juliet Pinot Noir with simple Mediterranean dishes.
The fruit was sourced from Yarra Valley and Mornington vineyards - regions known for the production of quality cool climate Pinot Noir. Winemaker Kevin McCarthy looks for Pinot Noir parcels with soft, elegant characters, which these regions are renowned for producing. It's the type of fruit necessary to make this juicy, vibrant style of Pinot Noir.
The individual vineyards were harvested and kept separate throughout processing. The stems were removed before crushing, to ensure that stem tannins were not transferred to the finished wine. The fruit was gently crushed, leaving some whole berries, before being cooled and put into open vat fermenters.
After fermentation was complete, the wine was settled in stainless steel for four months without oak influence, to retain the wines fresh fruit character.
