Beautiful Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. Opens on the nose with that compelling and engaging combination of sour cherry and spicy red fruits showing a little dried herb influence. The palate is medium bodied with excellent depth and concentration. Plenty of hands-on for this baby. Hand plunging in open fermenters and 30% whole bunch adding some structural poise. It spent 10 months in oak with the 20% new just adding that lift. Bottled unfiltered and unfined. There is structure here that will support ageing in the medium term.
