Produced from what are amongst the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Yarra Valley, this
wine is poised, intensely perfumed, and voluptuous brimming with flavors of sweet
strawberry/plum richness, anise, and beetroot. While richly textured, the tanins are
silky, round, and mouthfilling to the end. This well balanced Pinot Noir has the rare
ability to gain from bottle age in proper cellaring conditions rather than diminish.
"A lovely young pinot; aromatic and spicy, with fine tannins and tremendous length."
Australian Wine Companion
"Yarra Valley (and neighboring Mornington Peninsula) may be Australia’s prime spots for Pinot Noir and Yarra Yering’s 2006 Pinot Noir does not disappoint. Medium ruby-colored, it offers up a super-expressive bouquet of smoke, spice box, roses, black cherry, and raspberry. Silky on the palate, it is intense and full-flavored while remaining elegant. Its flawless balance should allow it to blossom for several more years and drink well through 2018. "
The Wine Advocate
"Vivid red. Strong red and dark berry aromas are complicated by rose, dark chocolate, herbs and smoky minerals; this is Burgundian in its interplay of fruit, minerals and earth. Suave, sweet raspberry and blackcurrant flavors coat the palate and are energized by brisk minerals. Gains sweetness with air and finishes with a late jolt of bitter blood orange. I really like the mix of depth and energy that this wine offers."
