We like to think of vintage 2011 as our most "European-like" vintage. Cool and moist conditions throughout the growing season saw the harvest of fruit that has translated into an elegant and refined wine. A blend of three vineyards, two from Geelong and one from Henty this wine builds on the early success of our Golden Plains Pinot Noir. A wine where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant, crimson red.
Red berry and lavender fruit aromas sit within a complex forest floor bouquet. The seamless clove-like French oak character matches the fruit expression.
On tasting a supple, silky texture is evident. Fruit flavours, true to the promised aromas, are across the mid-palate and are balanced by fine-grained tannins. A fresh line of natural acid keeps all in check. A charming wine to drink now or age over the medium term.
Duck, lamb, beef. Mushroom risotto etc.
