Product Description

Located in the lower Yarra, this 1.6ha vineyard is planted to MV6 clone on Schwarzmann rootstock. The vines were planted in 1997 on a thin layer of grey loam over clay at an elevation of 85-126m. Today Coldstream is Mac's warmest Pinot vineyard, owing to the westerly aspect. Hence it is the first picked every year. Due to the increased exposure, this wine has always delivered greater fruit generosity and texture than his other sites. While this is again apparent in 2012, the wine looks more refined and refreshing than ever. The wine's modest alcohol (13 per cent) belies the fleshy generosity of the wine's sweet berry fruit. This texture is well balanced by lithe tannins and freshness imparted, to some extent, by 10 per cent whole-bunch inclusion.
