These select cooler-sited blocks have consistently been integral components in our Estate Pinot Noir blend, contributing prettiness, perfume and poise married with more robust elements provided by our MV6 clonal blocks. As an extension of our explorations into the possibilities of future ‘fits’ for our vineyard plantings, we are delving into trials and subsequent selection of suitable clones from select sites beyond the omnipresent and, so far, unsurpassed Yarra Valley ‘workhorse’ MV6 clone. This approach may well be a lifeline for extending the ongoing viability of this noble variety on the valley floor, in the face of a steadily evolving and warming climate.

This wine walks a tense line between sweet-fruited and savoury characters. It bears a brightness of colour with an intensity of varietal fruit.

Aromas: Black cherry and char, strawberry, myrtle leaf and terra cotta. Darker elements of bergamot, nutmeg, freshly ground coffee and damp earth. Palate: Flavours of Damson plum, sarsaparilla, Szechuan pepper, shiitake broth, miso & cocoa nib surf a supporting stalky note.

Clonal particularity accentuated by a gentle hand in winemaking delivers a promising stepping stone in a future represent for this clone in our closely entwined Yarra Valley floor climatic and clonal future. This wine is suitable for vegans.
