Tasting Notes: Stellar pinot noir with remarkable structure, drive and harmony. A heady bouquet of dark cherries, rose petals, cinnamon-like spice and blueberries precedes an assertive and finely textured palate of length and latent strength. Don't be fooled by its velvet-like smoothness – here’s a densely packed pinot just waiting to build. Rolling down the palate with supreme balance and integration, it brings a savoury note and an emphasis rarely seen outside Burgundy.98 POINTS · HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2019.

Viticultural Notes: Grown on an ancient high river terrace, these iron rich, deep volcanic soils are unique to our site and it is these rocky soils combined with our forty year old vines that are at the heart of this wine. This is the third release of our Hill Road Block 4 Pinot Noir. This vineyard always delivers our best fruit and a true expression of our Coldstream terroir. After several warm growing seasons, 2017 was a return to a classic Yarra Valley harvest producing balanced, elegant wines with wonderful natural acidity.
