Another iteration of our favourite pre-dinner tipple, this vermouth is stuffed to the brim with 35 different florals, citrus and native botanicals. Bone dry and refreshing – perfect over ice or with a dash of soda on a summer’s afternoon.
This older dry farmed vineyard was singing in 2012. A glorious growing season (the first season we were fully responsible for our key vineyards) with warm days and steady cool nights combined with good regular rain will have 2012 rated as an outstanding vintage.
The pinot in particular caught attention as a young wine for bright but balanced fruit with depth and wonderful structure. Now with 8 years age, the wine is more fine in structure, still some red fruit perfume intermingling with some wonderful tertiary characters of spicy plum and cherry. This could be described as palate staining. Decant 1 hour prior to allow wine to open up.
What a great vintage for pinot! A long dry summer meant tiny berries packed full of flavour, and with a deep colour, heady florals and a dark, bold fruit profile, our 2019 Yarra Valley Pinot Noir punches well above its weight. Think bramble, black cherry and spice.
It’s hard not to smile when drinking this wine. Ridiculously low alcohol, subtle in every sense and so easy to consume. Fermented and matured in concrete and oak gives surprising depth and clarity.
