Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is such a cool cat. It's our bread and butter, our heart and soul. It's our hero wine out here, and we freaking love it. Subtle, perfumed. Just 100% totally drinkable and awesome. Smells of cranberry, boysenberry, cherry and earthy dried spices. Tastes like velvety dark fruits, with soft savoury tannins. Goes with Mushroom pizza, Charcuterie plates, Pasta with meaty ragu.

Fresh strawberry and rhubarb flavors show an appealing green edge, with plenty of juicy tension on the crisp finish. A note of matcha lingers. Drink now. 3,800 cases imported.

This is a likable wine that offers notes of ripe blueberries, plums and strawberries held together by a floral and earthy core. The palate is light-bodied and soft-edged. The fruit feels a little watery but there's enough acidity to prop it up.

Candied apple and maraschino cherry notes mark the nose of the fruit-forward 2017 Pinot Noir. It's a simple, light-bodied wine with minimal tannin and crisp acids. Drink it over the next few years.
