'This is an extremely expressive pinot with aromas of spiced red berries and red flowers.'
96 Points - James Halliday

  • Cracking Yarra Pinot of exceptional quality, made by Ben Haines, and with 96 from James Halliday and 95 from Wine Showcase magazine to boot.

    Sourced from a gentle south-east facing sloped vineyard in the Coldstream Hills, this wine is picked, destemmed and cold-soaked for 5 days in in open fermenters. It is then pressed gently, at the end of the cycle, and racked off to 500 litre French oak puncheons for barrel ageing.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    These Pinot Noir grapes were grown on a gentle south-east facing slope near Coldstream. Fermentation in 5 tonne open fermenters, with completion in 500 litre French oak puncheons, followed by maturation for a further 10 months. Well balanced and full of flavour, this wine exhibits cherry, plum and savoury/herbal flavours and balanced, textured tannins. It is a well-structured Pinot Noir that displays clear regional and varietal characteristics.

    TASTING NOTES

    Well balanced and full of flavour, this wine exhibits classic cherry and savoury flavours and subtle, velvet-like tannins. It is a soft, juicy Pinot Noir that displays clear regional and varietal characteristics.

    Alcohol - 14.3%

  • REVIEWS

    'Crushed into open fermenters, matured in French oak for 12 months. This is an extremely expressive pinot with aromas of spiced red berries and red flowers. The palate is seriously good, its length and balance opening the way for dark fruits, earthy spices and a surge of plummy fruit on the finish and aftertaste.'
