The Crawford River vineyard lies at the alluvial edge of a volcanic lava flow. The 11.5 Ha vineyard has its roots in an unusually complex, mineral-rich soil base. Gravelly, friable, basalt loam overlays permeable clay which in turn lies above a limestone base created by an ancient, risen seabed.Each block is separately hand picked and processed individually. 2017 was 100% whole bunch pressed to stainless steel. 3-4 day settle in tank prior to racking and inoculation with PDM yeast. Cool fermentation to dry in 100% stainless steel. Approximately 6 weeks on lees post fermentation. After being blended, the wine was sulphur adjusted and protein stabilised with Bentonite and cold stabilised. When ready, the wine is filtered in preparation for bottling, which is done in a single batch to ensure consistency, integrity and ease for the winemaker! Sterile filtered.Bright, fresh floral elements are the primary impression given by this young wine. Spice and texture underpin the soft palate, which shows even structure with lively acidity. Elegant throughout, with hints of oyster shell and citrus peel.
A 71/ 29% blend, wild yeast fermented, with no acid additions; 87% of the wine was matured for 5 months in French barriques (62% new). Follows in a long and proud tradition of exceptionally complex wines that rely on gentle persuasion, not brute force or, if you prefer, seduction rather than rape. The flavours are so attractive and mouthfilling now, it is easy to forget the wine will mature with grace for well over a decade. Screwcap. 12.5% alc. Drink to: 2025"- 97 Points James Halliday
A medium bodied, crimson Pinot with a bouquet of violets, black cherries and wild raspberry swirl as scents of undergrowth and pot pourri enhance complexity to form a rich, fragrant and savoury nose. A luscious energetic palate that is awash with fine tannin. Kirsch characters intersect with cocoa, black pepper all to be assuaged by swirls of vanillin spice that flourishes to a long lingering finish.
“Lots of tension with very bright fruit. Lots to bite on. Crystal clear.” Drink 2018-2024 17/20 Jancis Robinson MW
"Ever stylish, perfumed Pinot Noir from the Tracy Island vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula. Raspberry and squishy strawberries, subtle spice and earthiness, a perfume of rose and basil. Medium bodied, silky and fine, kind of succulent, but with a gentle drag of fine grained tannin giving structure and pushing out the length. Red drapes on a fine firm frame. Finish has a subtle herbal infusion, in with the pretty red fruits. Just lovely, as ever."
