Overview

The Mount Barrow vineyard has a predominantly southerly aspect directly exposed to the influence of the Southern Ocean and is the highest vineyard site in the Great Southern (possibly WA). The highest vineyard blocks are at 380m compared to 250 to 300m typical for vineyards along the northern face of the nearby Porongurup Range. The vineyard has a limited water supply which is applied judiciously using sub-surface drip irrigation.

Vines are generally very low capacity on upper slopes and moderate capacity on lower slopes.

The vines are all VSP (Vertical Shoot Position) with intensive canopy management. We are also using close to full bio-dynamic viticulture since establishment.

The focus of this vineyard is on small parcels of very high quality fruit. Further developments are based on improved and increased genetic diversity.

Expert Reviews

Pale ruby- purple colored, the 2012 Mount Barrow Pinot Noir is profoundly scented of dried cranberries, crushed red currants and red cherries with nuances of baking spices and dusty earth. Medium to full- bodied, it fills the mouth with warm red berry and all spice flavors with a low level of chewy tannins and crisp acid to support before finishing with good persistence. It's a lovely wine that is just lacking a little finesse. Drink it now 2017+. Rating 89+ - Drink by 2013 - 2017, Lisa Perrotti- Brown, erobertparker.com.au (AUG/2013).
