About

The Sexton vineyard is located in amongst some of the Yarra Valley's most famous vineyards, alongside the plantings of Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills. Owner Phil Sexton selected this site for its potential to make top-flight Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and the vineyard is delivering on its promise. The 2016 Pinot Noir, made by the 2016 Gourmet Traveller Wine Winemaker of the Year Steve Flamsteed, is a structural style of Pinot Noir. A bed of impeccable tannin lays the groundwork for a wine with a bright future for the serious Pinot lover.

What it Tastes Like

The aromas open with blue fruit, fresh spices, mulberry and crushed violets. Beautiful perfume which belies the firmness of the palate. It drinks well now but there's plenty more to come. More blue fruit and cherry flavours. Nice shape and definition here. And obviously high quality.
