Scarlett Pinot Noir
Description

Named Yering Station Scarlett, this wine celebrates the legacy of our technical viticulturist Nathan Scarlett (1975-2013). Utilising the latest and most advanced viticultural research, his pioneering work in the field of precision viticulture led us to isolate the most exceptional parcels of Pinot in our vineyards used in producing this wine.

Scarlett is only ever produced in the most outstanding vintages when our winemakers are truly convinced they have captured the essence of exceptional Pinot.

Crafted in extremely limited quantities, the real magic of this wine is in its inherent purity and balance, driven by the special patch of dirt where this fruit is grown.

Yarra Valley
2017 was an exceptional year. A classic Yarra Valley growing season, a wet Spring followed by moderate daily temperatures and cool nights. Perfectly balanced vines allowed the grapes to ripen in optimal conditions. In these years, the pristine fruit flavours combined with intensity and power give the wine balance and longevity.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Bright Crimson
Nose
Seductive zephyr of black rose & violets. Complex & layered. Very pretty
Palate
Intimate & seductive. Red & black cherry fruit layered with subtle earth spices. Incredibly elegant & beautiful yet so complex & powerful. The finish is a flourish of ripe fruit & fine boned silky tannins. Not to be underestimated, this Pinot Noir evokes your deepest emotions, leaving you with a heartfelt memory. Something to be cherished.

Scarlett Pinot is the legacy of Nathan Scarlett. I was lucky enough to have worked with Nathan. Working with someone who shares the same passion and drive, to understand the intimate nature of grape growing, is an incredible experience. We strove to identify and isolate unique batches of grapes, based on their site. This wine, to me, is a culmination of our friendship and mutual understanding. The purity, elegance and graceful nature of this site, brought Nathan and I together and will keep us that way forever. Nathan would be proud.

A sublime wine of purity and precision, first up in the fragrances of spice and violets, and thereafter in the long, immaculately poised palate, led by small red fruits. It encapsulates the vintage, the variety and the terroir, all contributing, none (with the possible exception of the vintage) dominating.
