About This Wine

This Pinot Noir is from the Lone Star Creek vineyard in the Upper Yarra. This part of the Yarra is cooler than the lower half and usually last to be picked, allowing a slightly longer, gentler growing season. Perfect for Pinot Noir. Most of the grapes were destemmed, 20% were kept as wholebunches. A long three week fermentation with gentle punch downs only once a day, ensuring a very gentle extraction. Matured for 12 months in 20% new oak and bottles unfined and unfiltered. A broad array of flavours through bright cherry and raspberry through to beetroot and a little forrest floor layers. Supple tannins and bright crushed red fruit acidity. Great complexity and ‘togetherness’, very silky and positively drinkable.

Dominic Valentine has always been a bit obsessed with Riesling. He got serious in 2010 during a stint in the Rheingau, Germany. Working with some amazing producers such as Weingut Josef Leitz and Weingut Georg Breuer. Taking what he learned in the home of Riesling, he now explores the various expressions of Riesling within Victoria, Australia. He also has Giant Steps on his resume, ensuring his understanding and appreciation of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. 

Based in the Yarra Valley, Dom offers up some gorgeous expressions of Yarra Valley. For a winemaker that has proclaimed his specialty as Riesling, Chardonnay and Grenache, his Pinot Noir in our eyes is one of the best discoveries we've made in the last year!
