Professional Reviews

All clone MV6 from a vineyard in Yarra Glen that was replanted after the fires in 2009. Destemmed and fermented in 5t open-top fermenters and matured in seasoned 500L French puncheons. A light, bright cherry red. With its scents of redcurrants, pomegranate, lightly spiced strawberries and a touch of rose petal, this is at the finer, more delicate end of the pinot spectrum. And while those flavours and that delicacy are duplicated on the palate, it's also got very fine, sinewy and persistent tannins. I can see this ageing beautifully.
