Product Description

The Primavera vineyard is at Woori Yallock, in the cool southern volcanic hills of the Yarra Valley. The Nocton vineyard –where grapes for the Fatal Shore pinot were grown –is planted in the calcareous and sandstone soils of the Coal River Valley near Hobart. The vineyards are about the same age, have a similar clonal mix and the wines were made almost identically –half of the grapes were de-stemmed, half fermented as whole bunches, then matured in barriques (25 per cent of them new) for eight months –and yet they couldn't be more different. The Primavera is all vibrant, juicy, crunchy red fruit, a cascade of raspberries and cranberries and fine, dusty tannin, while the Fatal Shore is denser, darker and plusher, with plump black cherries and chewy tannins.
Financial Review, May 2020

Dark cherry, plum, spicy biscuit oak, dried rose perfume. It’s fleshy, mouth-filling, though not particularly heavy, thick and silky tannin, even raspberry acidity, and a long insistently silty, slightly ashy tannin finish. Plenty to grab onto, yet it’s still identifiably Pinot Noir.
