Description

A bright fruited Pinot Noir with aromas of red cherries and poached summer plums. The palate offers a soft approachable structure with lovely velvet textured tannins. A touch of toasted oak adds to the generous length.

Wine Making Notes

Fruit was hand harvested in series of small batches and fermented separately in open top fermenters with approximately 25% whole bunch fermentation. The wine was matured in a combination of new, one and two year old French barriques for a period of 10 months.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2019 presented enormously favourable conditions for growers in the Yarra Valley. Following a cold winter, bud-burst was a little later than normal. Early spring conditions were cool and very dry but in both November and December we experienced excellent rainfall. With replenished soil moisture we were well set up for both generous yields and the warm to hot months of January and February. Harvest days were perfect with uninterrupted picking completed by mid-March.

Food Pairing

Roasted beetroot tart, Yarra Valley goats curd, red elk & candied walnut.
