Our Pinot noir is a beautiful garnet colour, with spice and red berry fruit aromas, which are also represented on the palate. The fine tannins are nicely balanced with the natural acidity, and a silky texture, producing an elegant wine suitable for drinking now or cellaring. It displays the typical robust characteristics of Derwent Valley gravelly limestone terroir.

This season was similar to 2008, so the quality of grapes produced this year were outstanding, producing lovely wines across the varietals. This particular Pinot is exceptional.

Our Pinot pairs well with cured meats and sharp cheeses, rich casseroles (slow cooked lamb or coq au vin), roasts (turkey, pork loin), beef steak, and mushroom or truffle dishes.

Alcohol content: 12.0% (7.1 standard drinks)
Size: 750 mL

More about this wine

2012 season

Summer temperatures were above average, with January some 2C above the long term average. There were 8 days over 30°C and two very hot days in late February where our thermometer registered 40°C. Autumn temperatures were average to slightly below average but the first week of April was particularly warm with temperatures up to 6°C above average.

Whilst our rainfall was slightly below average, our February rainfall was only half the monthly average, with March and April also below average, necessitating additional irrigation of the vines.

The Chardonnay was picked on 14 March for sparkling, the Riesling on 20 March and the Pinot on 30 March.

Preservative and allergen information

We use a small amount of sulphur-based preservative (224) in all of our wines and Verjuice to stabilise the wine and ensure a long life.

All of our still wines are packaged on a bottling line that may have traces of nut products. We do not use any nuts as part of our production process.

Our white wines may contain traces of dairy products (skim milk) remaining in the wine after the fining and filtration process.

Our red wines are vegan-friendly wines, as we do not use any animal products in their production.

Packaging and recycling information

Our sparkling wine is labelled with recyclable waterproof labels (designed to remain intact in ice buckets!) and biodegradable inks. The cap, cage (muselet), foil and glass bottle are fully recyclable.

Our natural cork stopper can be composted at home or via compost collection, or recycled through ReCork (available at select Dan Murphy’s stores across Australia).

All of our still wines are labelled with compostable paper-based labels for each varietal and a handwritten year; this allows us to eliminate duplication of labels for different vintages. The screw cap and glass bottle are fully recyclable.

We ship all of our wine using recycled cardboard packaging. Sparkling wine is packaged during bottling; still wine is packaged during order processing. You may receive different packages depending on availability. We reuse boxes from tasting events and within our storage facility.
