As with the Coldstream Hills Yarra Chardonnay, this wine is sourced from across the Valley. The techniques used by the winemakers are varied and diverse, to ensure maximum complexity. This does include the use of whole bunches and while that might appear to a degree in the finished product, it is certainly nothing that sticks out. Rather, it is just another factor adding to the complexity. Oak is a mix of new (27% this vintage) and seasoned and the maturation period was eight months.

The wine is a vibrant crimson. This is a delicious, early drinking Pinot, although there will be no harm done for those who’d like to give it 2-3 years in their cellars. There are bright fruit notes on the nose – raspberries, cherries, a little bramble and some soy, with a hint of a minerally background. It lingers nicely. A balanced and seamless Pinot with decent length and silky tannins. You could age it, but I’m not sure there is any reason to do so. Don’t deprive yourself of the pleasure.
