It’s popping candy for grown-ups! Highly aromatic with violets and mixed cherry fruit aromas, the palate is soft and full of juicy plums, a little bramble grip showing the use of stalks. These varieties complement each other beautifully with the perfume and spice of the Pinot and the underlying structure of the cool climate Shiraz.

Winemaking techniques used are to encourage an exotic floral fragrance coupled by a juicy expansive fruity palate coupled with a fine tannin framework. Pinot noir was fermented with whole berries in 600kg fermenters and hand plunged gently. Shiraz was 100% whole bunch fermented, left untouched for 10 days before destemming to complete ferment as whole berries. The individual components spent 9 months in French oak barriques in our underground cellar before blending and bottling.

Varietals: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Shiraz

Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)

Vines: Fruit was sourced from the Yarra Yering Pinot noir block with plantings in 1981. 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
