A beautifully structured Pinot with medium weight on the palate that is both vibrant and long. Still so young and will benefit from twelve months in the cellar initially. A wine that will age well and develop further for at least a decade or more.
Tasting Notes: Rich aromatic nose that is quite open with spice, red and blue fruits in abundance.Vibrant medium weight palate with great structure, length and ripe fine tannins. A wine that will age well for at least a decade or more
Winemaking Notes: Hand picked on 17th February 2016. Destemmed to open fermenters (50% whole bunch), short cold soak, natural primary and malolactic fermentation, 26 days on skins, pressed to French oak barrels(15% new). 10 months in oak, racked off lees just prior to bottling. Unfined and unfiltered.
Viticultural Notes: Our Hill Road vineyard and winery is located at Coldstream, 40 kms east of Melbourne in Victoria's oldest grape growing region, the Yarra Valley. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils, combined with our forty year old vines, are at the heart of this wine. 2016 will be remembered as one of the warmest and earliest harvests on record in the Yarra Valley.
