"a great pinot noir with almost freakish mouthwatering power and intensity. 98 Points" James Halliday

98 points. "40yo vines, wild yeast open-fermented with 30% whole bunches, 70% destemmed, 25 days on skins, matured for 10 months in barrel (20% new). Bright, clear crimson; a great pinot noir with almost freakish mouthwatering power and intensity. It's a narrative that fills all the senses, plums, cherries and berries woven through with fine, suspended tannins, and spices that will develop continuously over time. Halliday Rating: 98/100. Price when Tasted $130.00 Drink By 2037. James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019. 

An extraordinary marriage of power and elegance, this remarkable young pinot reveals a pristine, almost fiery bouquet of rose petals, red cherries, smoky cedary oak, cinnamon and underbrush backed by notes of ginger, citrus and dried herbs. Supple and deeply flavoured, with a luscious core of vibrant small fruit underpinned by genuinely firm but dusty tannins, it extends long and tight knit towards a finish of rare intensity and mouthwatering acidity. Artfull balanced, it will become more savoury and impactful with time.


Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
