Purity of fruit and an exploration of terroir describes this wine best. Letting the vineyard speak. Berries fight for space with more elemental flavours of forest floor and woody mushrooms. Spice drives the finish with tannins wrapping it all into a nice parcel. Juicy and moreish, definitely...more please.
The 2020 vintage just screams patience, knowing this is a lovely wine to drink now but like all great Pinots showing that hint of something more if you just have the patience to wait a couple of years. Aromas of Marzipan, morello cherries, strawberries and dried flowers waft from the glass. The palate is lean and compact, almost waiting to "flesh out", dark cherries and red cherries intermingle with savoury spice on a bed of fine firm tannins. Beautiful drinking now but in a few years lookout!
"A light bright cherry red. Red apple and cherry skins, pomegranate and a light incense stick spice. A lighter and moreish expression of Yarra pinot that finishes with chalky tannins and a mouthwatering cherry-pip acidity."
