Pinot Noir is a very selective grape. It does not like the heat but likes the sun. It likes to be on well drained soils, so not good on flat landscapes. It likes warm days but more important, cooler nights. It is so demanding that only a few Australian regions can aspire to produce Pinot Noir of any pedigree. The Yarra Valley has attained that status over the decades and we have set out to support that reputation with selecting small patches of older wines from various Single Vineyard sites from across the Valley.
Perfumed aromas of crushed berries and wild herbs abound with hints of spice. Lifted minerality gives the palate length and refined oak adds depth and complexity.
