The Leydens Vale series of wines takes their name from John Leyden, one of the original land holders in the Pyrenees region of central / western Victoria in the 1890’s.

The Leydens Vale Reserve range represents the best parcels of estate grown fruit as selected by the winemaking team.

Pinot Noir- widely regarded as one of the noble grape varieties, capable of making some of the greatest wines in the world, not just from the old world, but also from the cool climates of Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The Pyrenees of Western Victoria is one such cool climate district where the cool nights and warm days help the vine thrive and produce a uniquely subtle flavoured wine.

Winery Tasting Notes


The 2012 Leydens Vale Reserve Pinot Noir shows a vibrant bright cherry red colour with startling clarity.


The nose shows complex characters of “sous-bois”, earthy leafy notes, strawberry, beguiling dark and maraschino cherry aromas to the fore, supported by soft oak in the background.


The palate follows through with cherry and berry -like flavours intertwined with spice, hints of mint, a medium bodied and full flavoured red wine that while drinking superbly now, will reward short term cellaring.

Food Matching

Try this wine with duck, pork and chicken dishes, or with a cheese platter.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
