$32.00

2017 will be heralded as one of the classic years in the Yarra Valley for Pinot Noir, with the long and mild growing season giving rise to wines of great poise. 

This wine was composed from two very different vineyards with the aim of making a wine that covers the Yarra Valley Pinot spectrum. The cool "The Patch Vineyard" in the Yarra Valley's south brings lifted, bright red fruit and volume whilst the "Coldstream Vineyard"in the warmer Yarra Valley floor provides the savouriness, spice, structure and length.

The fruit was fermented as four small lots with wild yeasts and 20% whole bunches before maturation in French oak hogsheads (12% new). The result is a Pinot Noir of elegance and complexity.
