Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"Elegance is the backbone of this beautiful Pinot. Soft and dangerously supple, dark cherries, strawberries, dried leaves and damp earth all make this sing. The use of 15% whole bunches brings out delicate savoury appeal with some mushroom compost looming late. A touch of red apple and fine spices lace the frame with class." 94/100 Qwines
Vineyard Notes
Although the Yarra Valley had a cool spring, the winter rains and consistent weather ensured a healthy flowering and good fruit set. From January fine and dry conditions prevailed, and with few very warm days, the conditions were ideal to produce fine, ripe and balanced fruit. The Estate Pinot comes from a single block of MV6 clone where the yields are kept to a minimum careful vineyard management and bunch thinning.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was fermented in open vats and included 15% whole bunches to encourage perfume and fragrance in the finished wine. The ferment was hand plunged to gently extract the colour and tannins from the skins. After pressing the wine aged in French oak for ten months, (30% new oak) where the presence of lees promoted texture and mouth-feel.
