Awards/Reviews

96 pts James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion

60/40% upper/lower Yarra Valley fruit. Hand picked and open-fermented with 60% whole berries, the remainder whole bunches. A very bright, light–medium crimson red. A gentle waft of fresh raspberries and cranberries, with just the right amount of spice-rack spices. Delicious right out of the gate, this medium-bodied and refreshing wine will age well too. The perfect introduction to modern Yarra pinot.

94 pts Wine Spectator

Stunning, with terrific focus and intensity to the core of Earl Grey tea, firm, juicy cherry, raspberry and white pepper flavors. Notes of clove and green cardamom linger on the finish, with a touch of salted caramel. Drink now through 2034. From Australia.

 

Winemaker Notes

Made without compromise using 100% hand picked fruit from our meticulously maintained estate vineyards.

Vineyards: Sexton, Applejack, Primavera, Swallowfield, Wombat Creek and Tarraford Vineyards
Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir

These wines are produced with wild ferments, gravity-flow winemaking techniques, and minimal fining and filtration. This approach produces highly expressive wines, true to the regional characteristics of the Yarra Valley.

2021 began as a challenging vintage in the Yarra Valley due to summer and autumn rains and cooler than average temperatures during the growing season. However this then led to a long slow ripening period which produced thicker skins, riper stems and more concentrated flavors, resulting in Pinot Noir of excellent quality.
