The Brunnen vineyard is set amongst spectacular Australian bushland high on the hill behind Beechworth. Its high altitude and rugged soils make a perfect setting for high-class Burgundian varieties. The Chardonnay from this vineyard makes the Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown, as does the excellent Pinot Noir. This is a thought-provoking style of Pinot. Built in a savoury framework of herbal, undergrowthy mystery, the fruit purity from intelligent viticulture shines through. The 2015 release inspired a brilliant piece of prose from Campbel Mattinson who noted that the world of Tessa and Jeremy's Pinot Noir, "It’s a world worth stepping into." in his 93 point review. This is one of the finest examples of Pinot Noir to be found from the region and highly worth investigating if you like savoury yet delicate versions of this variety.

What it Tastes Like

"I both tasted and drank the wine prior to reading the release; indeed I first tasted it in a semi blind setting (I knew it was in the line-up, but I didn’t know which one). I liked it before and after the reveal. I’m interested to read that “two fruitier barrels” were declassified; this is a shot at savouriness, and/or complexity, with peppery spice notes littered through the drive of macerated fruit. It’s composed, it has some punch, but the strings are pulled as much by tannin and acid as they are by fruit; it’s a dance of many steps. It’s very young; its best lies ahead. It’s like sitting under a big tree and looking up at the branches and leaves, the fruit seaping through like light. It’s a world worth stepping into." - Campbell Mattinson
