  • 2017 SMALL BATCH PINOT NOIR

    LONE STAR CREEK | UPPER YARRA VALLEY

    The 2017 Vintage

    Winter and Spring were both cool with plentiful rainfall. Summer was mild, which led to a late start to vintage under clear and sunny skies with cool nights - perfect weather for harvesting Pinot Noir. Flavour ripeness was excellent at low sugar levels.

    The Site

    Block A Pinot Noir - Lone Star Creek Vineyard, Upper Yarra Valley.

    Deep red volcanic soil over clay with excellent water retention, Northerly aspect. MV6 clone Pinot Noir planted in 1998. Hand-picked on the 16th of March, 2017.

    The Selection

    Four barriques (one new Dargaud & Jaegle) were selected from a parcel of fruit fermented in a small 1-tonne open fermenter with 20% whole bunches included. Bottled on 13th March, 2018.


    $60 per bottle
