'A beautiful Pinot, absolutely stacked to the gills with varietal flavour.'
96 Points - James Halliday (2015 vintage)

  • The 13 hectare Toolangi vineyard at Dixon's Creek in the Yarra Valley, produces wines at three different levels from three segregated parcels. ‘Toolangi’ is a juicy, bright and rewarding entry to the range. The Estate wines offer a step up in depth, resonance and complexity, while the Reserve is a premium selection from Toolangi’s ‘Grand Cru’ parcel, and made only when the fruit is deemed of requisite quality.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Hand picked from our Dixons Creek vineyard, Yarra Valley. Cropping level adjusted to 2.5 tonnes per acre. 100% De-stemmed. Cold soaked for 3 days prior to fermentation, fermented in open top fermenters and plunged once daily. Malolactic fermentation in barrels and oak matured for 10 months in 100% French oak. 10% New oak and the balance in 1, 2 and 3 year old oak. Gentle filtration prior to bottling. Made at Yering Station.

    TASTING NOTES

    Raised in French oak, the 2016 is all about the interplay between structure, red-fruited succulence and bright, tangy sustain from the refreshing acidity. It's a Pinot that does not overwhelm with sweetness and, thanks to its freshness, looks great at the table. So good you'll want to drink it now, but this has more stuffing than you think.

  • REVIEWS

    '100% destemmed, no crushing, wild-fermented, 6 days post-ferment maceration, matured for 9 months in 20% new French barriques. A beautiful Pinot, absolutely stacked to the gills with varietal flavour, yet doesn't attack any of the senses, secure in its own beauty. Dark, spicy cherry fruit is foremost, but is as far away from simplicity as earth is from Mars. Great fragrance, great length, great balance and every other box gets an emphatic tick.'
