Our flagship Pinot Noir, taken from cooler Yarra Valley sites for freshness and bright fruit. Everything you’d want in a top-quality Yarra Valley Pinot Noir; red fruits shine up front with layers of savoury and spice supporting with elegance and depth of flavour; bright and finely structured.

Enjoy with roast duck, chicken or turkey, or play to the savoury characters with mushroom or olives.
