Quick Overview

From Gladysdale and Macclesfield, it’s a perfect illustration of the limpid freshness and vitality that characterises ’17 Yarra Pinot. Vibrant raspberry fruit aplenty in a light and pure mode, the flavours suggest more ripeness than the modest alcohol, with a character that Matt describes as ginger (and I like). 30% whole bunches in one parcel which helps give this some drive and tannins to finish. Real tension and lovely bright red fruit. A win.Best drinking: Now or up to five years time.
18.5/20, 94/100. 12.9%, $28.80 direct in 6 pack. Would I buy it? Mad value at those dollars. I’ve had many a $50 Yarra Pinot that sits behind this wine. Buy. Australian Wine Review

Product Description

Our 2017 vintage Pinot Noir hails from two Upper Yarra Valley vineyards with a blend of fruit from the same clone (MV6)


Both blocks are perched high on elevated, northerly facing slopes on volcanic clay loam soils. The Macclesfield site is our coolest vineyard and delivers pretty spices and structure, whilst the Gladysdale vineyard is older and offers wonderful drive and fruit purity.


Our Gladysdale fruit was handsorted, fully destemmed and cold soaked for a few days before being inoculated for fermentation. The Macclesfield parcel was 70% destemmed with 30% remaining as whole bunches in ferment. We largely left this one alone, allowing a long cold soak (5 days) before wild fermentation commenced. Both vineyard parcels were gently pressed to tank before running to a combination new (10%) and old French puncheons and barriques. 


After 9 months maturation, both vineyard parcels were blended in tank and settled before bottling, unfined and unfiltered. 


The finished wine is highly fragrant with lifted sour red cherry, ginger and dried florals with just a hint of wood spice. The palate follows suit with mouth filling cherries, supported by whole bunch spice and bright, mouth-watering acidity to finish.


 


"Matt East’s superb Shiraz made my Top 10 Shiraz list a few months ago, and now the Yarra Pinot Noir lobs up and it’s a beauty. I’ve tried this twice now and it just gets better.
