A harvest of Pinot Noir, clones MV6 and 777, much of it hand picked off fully mature vines up to fourteen years of age, are collated from good Yarra Valley sites which can yield the quality of fruit requisite of Yering Station. Grapes are treated to a cold soak for the extraction of colour and tannin before inoculation to choice cultured yeasts. Batches are vinified on skins in traditional five tonnes open fermenters over the course of a fortnight, followed by transfer to a selection of new and seasoned 228 litre French oak barriques for the completion of malolactic and eleven months maturation. Alcohol 13.5%
Crimson colour, cherry robes. Bouquet of red and black cherry fruit complimented by brooding earthy undertones, hints of violet and lavender, briars and licorice elements over subtle savoury spice. Velvet textured palate that's rich in black cherry spice flavours, savoury varietal rhubarb and cherry tomato characters are surrounded by vanillin oak. A lovely concentration on the middle palate is supported by sleek and supple tannins.
