YARRA VALLEY WINE AT ITS BEST

2017 Pinot Noir – Warramate

$30.00

Red and blue fruits with the varietal silkiness give this wine a lightness through the mid palate before the oak tannins pick it up and carry it to a long and lingering finish.

93 Points, James Halliday Wine Companion.

This blend of 4 distinct Pinot Noir clones shows intense varietal character married with distinctive complex qualities specific to our single vineyard and reflective of the conditions peculiar to the growing season. Matured for 10 months in 100% French Oak (30% new).

The nose of this Pinot noir offers subtle notes of mixed berry, black cherry and a little spice woven amongst a perfumed grape stalk lift and mere hints of cigar box oak. The palate is dominated by red and blue fruits with the varietal silkiness giving it a lightness through the mid palate before the oak tannins pick it up and carry it to a long and lingering finish. 93 Points, James Halliday Wine Companion.

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.
