RRP (AUD)

An outstanding pinot, refined and long, with a super-seductive texture. From a small parcel of MV6 in the Henk vineyard (Aqueduct Block), planted in 2008 in the red volcanic soils of Woori Yallock. Hand harvested and sorted before fermentation on skins for three weeks (approximately 20% whole bunches) and elevage in both 300L and 500L Frenck oak barrels (10% new). A very low cropping vintage, however the small yields have resulted in darker fruited, highly concentrated pinots.

90 | A light bubblegummy wine, plain and simple. And nice. Carbonic mac?

93 | A pretty wine. Looks quite simple in the line up but plenty of bright juicy fruit. Not forced, tannins in support.

88 | simple expression, good balance, built for speed not distance

93 | Light weight with pleasing cherry and strawberry flavours. Lovely acidity. Medium weight.
