Varietals: Pinot Noir
Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)
Vines: Fruit for this wine was sourced exclusively from the Yarra Yering planting of Pinot Noir, containing some of the oldest vines of their type in the Yarra Valley. A mixed planting of 4 clones was undertaken in 1969, then followed up with replication in 1981 (top of the slope) & 1984 (bottom of the slope).
Cellaring: Pinot noir is such an enjoyable young wine, if you can keep yourself away for up to 10 years under suitable cellaring conditions you will be rewarded.
Vintage 2016: 2016 began with a dry winter and spring with an unusually warm October prompting the vines into growth. An early harvest followed with Chardonnay first into the winery closely followed by Pinot noir.
