Winemaker Notes

The 2001 vintage in the Yarra Valley was considered demanding by many. Healthy spring rains replenished water supplies and promoted good early growth. The remainder of the growing season was hot and dry, allowing excellent flavor development.

Although the vintage period was difficult with the periodic rains, Sticks' vintages were harvested on the basis of flavor ripeness and acid balance and, as a result, were generally unaffected by the weather. This has allowed them to make wonderfully approachable wines with plenty of flavor.

Maturations was initially on light lees in new and seasoned French oak, then racked and returned to oak for extended oak maturation.

The color is garnet red with purple tinges. The bouquet displays cherry, plum and spice, enhanced by subtle oak. The palate possess rich and savory berry fruits, enhanced by velvet-like tannins and a lingering mid-palate texture. Medium term cellaring for 2-4 years will add complexity and enhance mouth feel.

Sticks, Yarra Valley, Australia
2002 Pinot Noir
Winemaker Rob "Sticks" Dolan crafts these wines from fruit grown on premium vineyards in Victoria's Yarra Valley. Rob Dolan's career began in South Australia, where he learned the art of making wine from the ground up. He developed and refined his skills under the instruction of two of Australia's most distinguished teachers. It was during this time that the budding winemaker and towering sportsman, known as "Sticks", was also a dual premiership player for the Port Adelaide Football Club.

In 1991, Rob Dolan became the winemaker at Yarra Ridge. The small family winery provided Rob with the opportunity to experiment, which enabled him to hone his winemaking skills. His efforts were immediately recognized on the international show circuit. Rob proceeded to plant his first "Sticks" grapes in the mid 1980's. The goal at Sticks is to provide today's drinker with immensely satisfying wines at affordable prices.
