Winemaker's Notes:

When it comes to Pinot, Shoofly is convinced the best wines are coming from their eastern neighbors in the Yarra Valley. It's easy to see why - this wine shows the purity of fruit that is so easily lost with this fickle variety. The aromas and flavors mirror one another with light cherry, spicy floral notes and hints of vanilla. The silky texture envelops the palate while the balanced flavors welcomingly linger on the finish.
