98 POINTS AND BEST OF THE BEST - HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION

From the Upper Yarra Valley, wild-fermented with 40% whole bunches/60% whole berries, minimum plunging de facto carbonic maceration, matured in French oak (25% new), gravity bottled. Bright crimson; the bouquet is a perfumed mix of red fruit blossom, the red berry flavours of the palate symbiotically joined with the bouquet. It is a wine of exquisite purity and detail in its texture and strength. As befits a pinot of this quality, the palate is very long, the peacock's tail opening on the finish and aftertaste. 98 points. James Halliday. Halliday Wine Companion 2019

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!
