Rich and distinctive with a fleshy texture featuring black cherry, plum and a touch of cinnamon. This wine has great persistence and length with a taut structure.
Souced from a renownd Pinot grower; this fruit comes from within the Beechworth GI. The vineyard backs on the the Murmungee Basin and has shale based soil. The clone is MV5 and vine age is 15 years. The site is quite windy which tends to make the tannins more pronounced.
Environmental scientist John Stokes planted his Wood Park vineyard in the foothills of the Victorian Alps in 1989. Driven by a passion for the environment John has reinvigorated Wood Park through a mix of re-forestation, erosion control and improved biodiversity. The vineyard is managed with a commitment to minimal chemical use. John’s wine making is a mix of traditional and modern techniques including plenty of hand plunging in open fermenters and use of wild yeasts.
