2017 Reserve Pinot Noir

The fruit batches are kept separate in barrel and blended to the style intended to express the truest form of the varietal character and the site. Pinot Noir from these cooler years show restraint in their youth, needing time to unwind and reveal their full character.
The palate is finely layered opening with fleshy pure fruit, a silky texture, fine tannins and an elegant palate. It has wonderful persistence of flavour and excellent potential for long term cellaring. Drink now and over 10 or more years.

Site Selection: H-Block is the backbone of the Reserve Pinot Noir blend. At 34 years of age, this is one of our icon sites. It consistently produces our highest quality Pinot Noir, the soil is naturally low yielding giving optimum vine balance. I block was planted in 1989, as a clonal trial block. The D5V12 adds another dimension to the Reserve Pinot Noir.

Vintage Notes: 2017 was a later and cooler year in the Yarra Valley. The cold temperatures that persisted through Spring slowed fruit development, while January and February brought perfect ripening conditions, with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s, and cool nights aiding retention of acid and fine flavour development. These blocks were harvested 2 weeks later than 2016.

HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2020 Jane Faulkner
Fruit off the H & I blocks gives it a crimson-ruby hue; overall, a stylish and beautifully balanced wine with everything neatly in place. The right amount of cherry fruit, spice, supple yet savoury tannins, and a freshness to the acidity that lasts to the very end. An elegant pinot, yet has a depth of flavour. 95 Points

LESTER JESBERG Winewise Pinot Noir Tasting, 9 Oct 2019
This is an opulent pinot noir showing dark cherry characteristics with a hint of dried herbs. The palate is of impressive length and the tannins are supremely fine.
