Premium Pinot Pack

Six great examples of premium Pinot Noir from around Australia.



About The Pack

For many wine lovers, Pinot Noir is the Holy Grail.

This pack showcases some exceptional examples of this coveted variety from Australian shores.

These are silky, seductive, ethereal wines of very high calibre. 

Here you can explore top-class, cellar-worthy Pinot Noir from Tasmania to Mornington Peninsula, all in one simple pack.

2018 Garagiste Cuve Beton Pinot Noir

A constant tinkerer and experimenter, Barney Flanders is always looking to understand Pinot Noir just a little bit deeper.

Cuve Beton is an investigation into the effect of concrete as a fermenting and ageing vessel rather than oak as is traditional for Pinot Noir.

The results surprised even Barney, himself.

The fruit is all from Merricks but it looks disticntly different to the straight Merricks bottling. This is more about flowers and pretty things rather than the earth and power you usually see in Merricks. The tannin here too is a highlight. Dare I say it, more 'Nebbiolo-esque' than Pinot in the traditional sense.

It's an awesome wine and bucketloads of fun to drink.

2019 Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir

The Dixon Pinot Noir is the composite blend of declassified Pinot Noir from various plantings on the Bindi vineyard (including the original 1988 plantings and the elite K Block vines).

It's a wine made to be more approachable in its youth than the single site wines, yet blended to show the same mellifluous texture and aroma that Bindi Pinot Noirs are known for.

Named for Henry Reed Dixon, Michael Dhillon's ancestor who first came to their home in Gisborne in 1853.

If you'd like to take a peak at the legendary Pinot Noirs from this small Macedon producer, this is the perfect place to start.

2018 Hoddles Creek 1er Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Now firmly ensconced as one of the Yarra Valley's most collectable Pinot Noirs, the 1er from Hoddles Creek never disappoints.

This immaculate vineyard in the Upper Yarra produces some of the region's finest fruit. Winemaker Franco D'Anna only releases it in the best vintages. With the 2018 release, he thinks he has made one of their best to date.

The 2018 is long and exceptionally well balanced. Lower yields and increased demand will mean that this will be only available for a limited time.

A wine of remarkable value and world class quality - if you're a lover of Pinot Noir then this is a must buy.  This is Australian Pinot Noir at its very best.

2018 Small Island Glengarry Pinot Noir

A hidden gem of the Apple Isle, the Small Island Wines are making plenty of noise with only a small range.

This is their single site Pinot Noir from the Glen Garry vineyard in the North of the island. Focused, intense and brooding, this is a Pinot Noir with a lot of charisma.

Oak set decidedly to the background, the fruit from this excellent vineyard front and centre. In Campbell Mattinson's 95 point review, he dubbed it, "Clear favourite of the three individual vineyard releases..."

Only tiny amounts made.

2019 Chatto Tasmanian Pinot Noir

Jim Chatto is one of Australia's most highly regarded living winemakers. Some of his recent releases may well come to be seen as some of the best wines of his generation. His winemaking ethos is simple and site driven: the very model of modern Australian wine.

Whilst the whole Chatto label has been founded on a single vineyard in the Huon Valley, in 2019 there's a departure for Jim, forced by smoke taint on his own fruit.

Tasmania is a blend of three vineyards in the north of Tasmania, two in the Tamar Valley and one in Pipers River.

It's classic Chatto in style, with savouriness and earthen aspects to the fore. It's a gorgeous wine for both drinking now and well into the future.

2019 Gentle Folk Piccadilly Pinot Noir

Gareth Belton's sub-regional expressions of Pinot Noir are clearly elevating above the pack in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills.

He says it's the most difficult of grapes to make. Well, he seems to have well and truly gotten his eye in this year.

The Piccadilly Pinot Noir is an exquisite, dark and earthen creature. It was brought to life with 100% whole bunches and other than a splash of sulphur at bottling, no other additions in the winery.

It showcases two great vineyards (Whisson Lake & Budenburg) from the cool reaches of Piccadilly and does them both proud.
