About

The 2015 vintage in the Yarra Valley has produced some stunning wines. After more than twenty vintages in the region, Dave Bicknell did not miss the opportunity to make some of his finest Bicknell FC wines to date. The 2015 Applecross Pinot Noir was made in only tiny amounts. Birds having ravaged the vineyard just prior to picking meant yields were microscopic from the Gladysdale vineyard that Dave and Nicky manage. However, the fruit that was salvaged was first class. 100% whole bunches were used in fermentation, depth of flavour is sublime as is the concentration. This is a wonderful Yarra Pinot, one with the structure to cellar beautifully or be opened now and enjoyed after a good decant.

What it Tastes Like

Earth and black cherry flavours strung along an intricate web of tannin. Fruit is intense and inwardly focused on opening, but given time it unfurls in the glass to reveal potpourri dried flowers and herbs. So fine. So lovely.
