Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)
Vineyard: Warramate, elevation 160 to 180 metres
Vines: The Pinot noir was planted in 2000. This 5.0 acre plot comprises four distinct Pinot Noir clones (55% MV6, 18% 114, 18% 115 & 9% G5V15). These vines are situated at the most westerly position on the estate, benefiting from the sheltering effects of aspect & bordering windbreaks. The vines are generally spared over-exposure to hot northerly winds & late-afternoon sun in summer which aids in the development & accumulation of delicate, perfumed fruit characteristics. All Warramate vines are farmed without irrigation.
Soil: Silty clay loam over yellow clay
Cellaring: This elegant and intensely perfumed Pinot Noir will continue to evolve for 5 -8 years.
