A number of small ferments with varying percentages of whole bunch to add layers and lift.  Hand plunged before gravity filling to oak barrles (20% new) in the underground cellar).

Violets and lavender dominate the nose, nicely supported by mixed berry fruits.  A lovely lift of stalk heightens the spice element.

Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir

Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)

Vineyard: Warramate, elevation 160 to 180 metres

Vines: The 5 acre plot of Pinot Noir was planted in 2000 and is 100% MV6 clone.  These vines benefit 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.
