The fresh perfumed aromatics are of dark plum and raspberry fruits layered with smokey whole bunch characters.  A palate of purple fruits and juicy berries are enhanced by a ripe tannin structure.  Lees work has provided volume in the mid palate, while bright acidity completes the wine.  A serious, balanced, medium- weighted wine.


An uncharacteristic growing season, one of the most challenging vintages with breaking monthly rainfall records, high humidity, and disease pressure. Improved weather conditions were welcomed in January providing good ripening conditions. Although crops were down a little, fruit quality has been high resulting in elegant wines. 


Harvested from a combination of our ‘G’ Block north facing hillside block (67%), and ‘C’ block from our lower vineyard (33%), the MV6 clone Pinot Noir is fermented in separate batches using open top fermenters. Utilization of cold soak techniques and approximately 23% whole bunch in the fermentation promotes complexity.  Maturation after pressing was on light lees in a combination of aged French puncheons for a period of 9 months.


Slow roasted lamb, torn basil, cherry tomatoes, Mt Zero olives and Yarra Valley marinated fetta.
