Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
Varietals: Pinot Noir
Appearance: Bright crimson
Vines: Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Yarra Yering planting of Pinot Noir, containing some of the oldest vines of their type in the Yarra Valley. A mixed planting of 4 clones was undertaken in 1969, then followed up with replication in 1981 (top of the slope) & 1984 (bottom of the slope).
Cellaring: Pinot noir is such an enjoyable young wine, if you can keep yourself away for up to 10 years under suitable cellaring conditions you will be rewarded.
Vintage 2018: A cool and wet spring and summer delayed budburst and encouraged good canopy growth and good fruit set before summer arrived and thereafter the season turned dry. Picking over a busy 6 weeks delivering grapes with generous flavour development.
