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.
