Pure red cherry and darker plum fruits, a supple and complex Pinot Noir with an enticing deep crimson/purple hue. A wine of charm and intensity with fine chalky tannins and a long and pure aftertaste. Balanced and powerful, this wine will reward careful cellaring for 8-10+ years.
Strong colour but showing such clear varietal character with cherry and raspberry, pencil, a little flower and spice over a deeply earthy/mineral framework. Acidity is pure and clear, dense fine grained graphite tannin, and it pushes through the mouth from front to back with unerring precision. It’s not a big wine, but it’s powerful. And extremely good. 95+ points, Gary Walsh, Winefront, 19th June, 2019.
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.
