Cool nights and warm days allowed these precious Pinot Noir grapes to ripen gently to full maturity. Handpicked and slowly de-stemmed to maximize the whole berries allows our unique cold soak process to express site characteristics. Gentle handling ensures that true silky, elegant, concentrated flavours are retained
- VIC - Yarra Valley
Spent 12 months in French oak, and another 12 months in bottle prior to official release. Light crimson; the fragrant, red berry aromas lead into an intense, elegant and very long palate, juicy red berry fruit interwoven with satin tannins. A seriously lovely pinot that has benefited greatly from the extra 12 months since first tasted. Rating 95 - Drink by 2018 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Intoxicating mix of exotic blue violet perfume, savory spice and briary frits. Subtle chocolate and cherry oak compliment this graceful Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.
Elegance personified. Rich red/black cherries coupled with a silky middle palate. These are the characters that winemakers dream of! Concentration and beauty only achieved in remarkable years.
