Cherries, raspberries, rhubarb and a touch of spice all find a place to create a vibrant, full and generous wine with a velvety and fleshy texture.
Bursting with flavour, this is a supple wine with youthful juiciness. A blend of pinot noir grapes from four vineyard sites which truly captures the essence of the Yarra Valley. Each vineyard brings a different element to the wine, with the overall theme being bright fleshy fruit.
The four vineyards are:
- Roundstone Estate, Steels Creek
- Upper Ngumby, Yarra Glen
- Gist, Christmas Hills
- Willowlake, Gladysdale
Every parcel of fruit is kept separate in the winery before and after fermentation. The wine is kept in barrel for six months before the best of all the vineyards is brought together to blend a deliciously succulent wine.
"Tasted these a while ago and thought I’d posted reviews; was surprised to find no mention of the Nikkal wines on the site. This one is Yarra Valley pinot noir from a good vintage, from a range of vineyard sites. Here we go: my notes simply say: “Cherry, apple, violet and beet, woodsy spices about the edges. Neat, compact, attractive.” I think you get the drift. It’s well made and delivers good varietal flavour." - 90 Points, Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
