100% Pinot Noir
Lilac perfumed nose, cherry fruits with a pinch of aniseed spice.
Black cherry fruits dominate the palate, with a pinch of Chinese five spice. A silky elegance combined with a defined tannin structure, both grape and oak tannin, to produce a medium-bodied yet powerful style. A Pinot Noir that will reward cellaring for up to 10 years.
The grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight. Processing the following day along a fruit sorting table and destemmed gently into Yarra Yering’s signature small fermenters. Some whole bunches were used to contribute subtle stalk structure and a generous fruit profile. Working of the ferment by gentle hand-plunging twice daily contributes to the soft fruit palate along with gentle pressing. Maturation for 10 months in all French barrels with 30% new and the balance older oak.
“A beautifully balanced and complete wine to either drink now or cellar so it garners more complexity. The former option is hard to beat, revealing plump plums and black cherries, layers of spice and integrated oak. Precision across the palate, raw silk tannins and a freshness to the acidity ensure there’s a lingering quality.” – 96 points - Jane Faulkner, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion.
