Winemaking Notes

A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – whole berry fermentation in open vessels for two weeks followed by an 10 month maturation in French oak barrels.

Growing Conditions

Vineyard Series Pinot Noir
The Yarra Valley has three distinct geographic zones or sub-regions - lower warmer, middle cool and higher cooler sub-regions. We have matched particular varieties with the specific sites to give you outstanding examples of single vineyard wines.

Vintage
A warm spring and mild summer has resulted in excellent crops and ideal harvesting conditions. The wines have outstanding depth of flavor and structure.

Tyson Stelzer Tyson Stelzer's Australian and New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017

June, 2017

The cool Upper Yarra site of Lusatia Park produces a fragrant and elegant pinot, here expressive of rose petals, red cherries and dried herbs, accented with exotic spice. It’s supple and finely structured, with silky tannins and tangy acidity.

Huon Hooke The Real Review

October, 2016

Bright, medium to full red/purple colour, the aromas fresh and bright with red cherry galore. Light to medium-bodied and finely structured, it has clean, bright fruit flavour and floral, spice, dried herb overtones. The palate is firm and crisp, with lovely purity.

Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front

July, 2016

A wine of smoke and sinew. It’s ripped with bright, ripe, sweet-sour fruit but the character is in the fringe, the tail, the woodlands beyond the field of berries. There’s a purpose to this wine that is immediately apparent, and never wavers. The run of undergrowth and tobacco flavour to the finish is the perfect icing. Gorgeous drinking. Value is the added bonus.

James Halliday James Halliday Wine Companion

Hand-picked, de-stemmed, whole berry, fermentation 14 days, 11 months maturation in French oak. Vivid crystal clear colour; pinot speaking of variety and place with no winemaking ego getting in the way; red cherry/berry fruits have a bracing by fine tannins; the oak is well integrated, with only a judicious amount new.

Lester Jesberg Winewise

Very fresh red berry aromatics are enhanced by subtle sous bois (forest floor) complex notes. The palate offers enjoyable fruit sweetness backed up by a fine structure. Another “cool” pinot from the Upper Yarra.
