Very pale, bronzing reds. Lifted redcurrants, raspberries, red cherries, leaf and twigs. Complex rather than fruit based aromatically, however the palate is soft, round and doughy initially, with more fragrant red fruit, sous bois and leaf wrapped up in silky tannins, before correcting its line on smoky whole bunch spiciness.
Local Vineyard Series Pinot Noir - Syme-on-Yarra Vineyard
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.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from a cool easterly facing block at the
foot of the Warramate Hills.
The 2011 growing season was one of the coolest and longest on record resulting in precise fruit flavours and naturally high acidities.
This wine was 80% whole berry and 20% whole bunch fermented into open fermenters, then transferred into hogsheads (300L barrels) for a 9 month
