Expressive, supple and complex Pinot Noir with an enticing crimson/purple hue. The nose speaks of place, under the shadow of the Warramatte Ranges. Bright raspberry/cranberry with darker cherry undertones, fine oak spice and a touch of violets it is both detailed and abundant. The palate subtle and vi-brant with plenty of ripe soft tannin presence, ensuring a wine suitable for cel-laring. The 2019 season has delivered us a wine of incredible balance and charm.
Farm and Vineyard sits on the ancient mountain derived soils of the Gruyere sub-region in the heart of the Yarra Valley. The 150 hectare property was planted to 12.3 hectares of vines in 2000, with blocks ranging from 130 to 208m altitude. The six blocks were specifically chosen to suit each variety planted; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Aspect, soil type and sun exposure are all maximised to produce wines of exceptional poise, balance and character. Winemaker Simon Steele ensures the vineyard and the wines are cared for by hand with great attention to detail and bottled on-site.
