TASTING NOTES

Planted on dramatic slopes at high elevation in the Upper Yarra Valley, Wombat Creek Vineyard has cool, extended seasons and high sunshine hours – perfect for Pinot Noir wines with a beguiling mix of power and purity.

SEASON

Vintage 2017…dreams are made of this. Not too hot, not too cold, neither too windy nor too humid, too wet or dry. Just enough, and not too much, of everything so that the true personality of the site can take centre stage. The moderate season allowed the vines to ripen slowly, building great depth of flavour while retaining fine balance in sugar and acid. Harvest began in mid-March, a little later than the long-term average and a full month behind the record-early vintage of 2016.

WINEMAKING

This is a single clone wine of MV6 Pinot Noir. The fruit was handpicked in mid-March and chilled overnight before processing. The bunches were destemmed and the fruit was cold soaked for five days before.
