The Wine

Wow 2021 was such a perfect season, low pressure farming, excellent flowering, everything went to plan in the vineyard with our organic practices, a very good feeling knowing all the input in the season might have a good output on some really lovely wines. The vines are MV6 clone grown on Volcanic grey loam soils over weathered basalt sitting at 430m alt, plantings ranging from 40 - 27 years. This year in September we are planting another 2000 Pinot Noir vines using 115 clone, exciting times 40 years on from our 1st establishment. Blocks harvested from 4/04 - 6/4/21, all destemmed into our original 3000L concrete fermenters using no pumps, as always spontaneous fermentation via our indigenous yeasts, pump overs twice daily, vats basket pressed 19/04/2021 - 20/04/2021, transferred into 228L barriques of various coopers, topped monthly, sulphur added post malo in November, racked from barrels in late march 2022 no fining or filtering, bottled on 21/10/22. A small amount of sulphur post malo & pre bottling. If you've been following us you'll know that 1997 & 2001 are pretty special vintages, 2021 feels like it might be in the same club.
Eastern Peake

95 Points Huon Hooke "Bright, medium-deep red-purple colour with aromas of raspberry, blackberry, mint and vanilla, the palate lean and highly tensioned, with refreshing acidity and impressive line. The tannins are taut and firm, impressing themselves on the long-lasting finish with vitality and purpose. A really impressive pinot noir with a future ahead of it".

94 Points Mike Bennie, The Wine Front "The intrinsic one, right? Gary tasted it and said ‘tastes like an Italian wine, nerello or something’ when I handed him my tasting glass. We’d been on a run of Italian and Portuguese wines and it feels kindred. Has this mix of loose knit feel and tightly wound, very fine, powdery and crushed rock tannins, that sense of pebbly minerality in acidity and a good deal of dried sage leaf, paprika spice amongst the tart-ish, sour cherry fruit characters. Softness and brightness in the same sip too. A very moreish wine, very good indeed.
