Winemaking techniques for this 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Shiraz blend produce an exotic floral fragrance coupled by a juicy expansive fruity palate with a lingering tannin presence. These varieties complement each other with the perfume and spice of the Pinot and the underlying structure of the fruity cool climate Shiraz.

Varietals: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Shiraz

Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)

Vines: Fruit was sourced from the Yarra Yering Pinot noir block with plantings in 1969, 1981 and 1984. Shiraz was grown on the Waterloo block planted in 1995.

Cellaring: This wine has been made with the intention to be an early drinking style of wine; fragrant and delicious in its youth. It will continue to evolve for some years under suitable cellaring conditions however this is not required. Please drink it and enjoy it!

Analysis: 13.0 % ALC

Pinot noir was fermented with whole berries in 600kg fermenters and hand plunged gently twice daily before basket pressing. Shiraz was 100% whole bunch fermented, left untouched for 3 weeks but for some occasional light foot stomping before pressing.  The individual components spent 9 months in French oak barriques in our underground cellar before blending and bottling.

50% Pinot noir and 50% Shiraz, these varieties complement each other with the perfume and spice of the Pinot and the underlying structure of the cool climate Shiraz.
