About

Making the 'Wesi', as Mac calls it, was one of those lightbulb wine moments for this wild-haired Yarra Valley champion. He says that this is the vineyard that made him see clearly for the first time, that his mission was not to be a great maker of Pinot Noir, but to be a conduit through which a vineyard could tell its story, regardless of the variety planted on it. "Amazingly we see all wines from this site look similar be they red or white." Wesburn just tastes like Wesburn, not just Pinot Noir. It is always one of his smallest productions each year and, along with the Woori Yallock Pinot Noir, one of the most sort after. With 95 points from James Halliday and Gary Walsh, the 2015 is one of the best releases from this vineyard to date.

What it Tastes Like

"Raspberry and dark cherry, perfume and spice wafting about, with some aniseed blowing cooler notes. It’s smooth and fine, with dense silty tannin, though feels light in weight overall. There’s a slight but pleasant tartness to the acidity, though it’s submerged under layers of spice and ripe red fruits. Finish is long and precise. Certainly the excess is gone, and it feels trimmed back to the bone, but its structure and ‘fine wine’ feel is the overarching theme. Top shelf." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
