2013 Estate Pinot Noir

Made with the same approach as the Reserve wine, this wine is produced from a different selection of fruit parcels and barrel combinations.

The wine displays lifted raspberry aromas, with a hint of earthiness and subtle oak. The flavours combine bright fruit with fine tannins, the richness reflecting the warmer year.

It will drink well for six to eight years.

Vine age and features: The fruit was picked from various blocks with vines aged between 11 and 21 years old, grown on high north facing slopes to maximize sunshine hours. Northerly winds from Long Gully provide good air flow and favourable micro-climates across the Estate.

Vintage notes: 2013 vintage was one of the warmer vintages we have experienced. Dry conditions persisted from veraison to harvest. Fruit was hand-picked in excellent condition, with high colour intensity and flavour expression.

JAMES HALLIDAY, Halliday Wine Companion 2016

Good colour and a particularly expressive bouquet is followed by an impressively articulated palate; spiced plum aromas and flavours are in perfect sync with the restrained, but evident, oak and finely honed tannins. 95 points

Gee this is smart stuff. There's plenty of Pinot coming out of various wineries as good as this but theirs is labelled 'Reserve' or something of that ilk and chasing $40+. This, for a mere $28, is crazy value.  Attractive perfume, the cherry and red fruit is deadly smooth tossing in some forest floor. A long and supple length which is well balanced, woah! Did I say twenty-eight bucks?  Very good and a bargain deluxe.

2013 was a warm one in the Yarra. The nose for this evokes silky cherry skin, like the ones in the Cherry Ripe ad, just before the dripping chocolate coats them. A hint of meatyness and earth. Ridiculously enticing.  Silky, slinky on the palate: long cherry and raspberry with a balance of just amount of stalky grip. Ripe flavours prevail then structure delicately steps quietly and creates transitions from primary to secondary nuances. It’s Claudio Arrau playing Chopin’s Nocturne Op.9 No.1, where delicacy and depth counterpoint so harmoniously.

CAMPBELL MATTINSON The Wine Front, 8 April 2015
This is the standard or estate or “Yarra Valley” version; it’s not the Reserve. Quality-wise though you’d hardly know it. This is very good. It has an easy-going complexity; not an easy thing to do. It’s all forest and undergrowth and yet the core is satiny cherry-plum. It gets the mix, the balance, the structure right. Immaculately so. Smoky oak seals the deal.
