About

Tony Fikkers is flying at the moment. His vineyard selection in the Yarra Valley is impeccable and the winemaking choices he is employing are very sharp. This Pinot Noir comes from a single vineyard in Yarra Junction, a product of the glorious 2015 vintage which has been much talked about - and with good reason. This release showcases much of the savoury, herbal side of Pinot Noir. Whole bunches utilised to great effect, hands off management through the fermentation process, just letting the fruit run its own course. You will have to be quick if you want to try this wine, the 130 dozen release will be snapped up by those who enjoy the slightly grungier side of Pinot Noir in no time.

What it Tastes Like

"Has all the makings: the colour is good, the bouquet with dark (not black) fruits and a spicy backdrop, the palate combining bright dark cherry and strawberry fruits framed by a carefully crafted oak frame. The spice and forest floor elements will come through well over the next few years, gaining it higher points." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
