2016 Jamsheed Harem Series Pepe Le Pinot

Yarra Valley, VIC

Tip top little Victorian Pinot by an absolute master that’s not going to bust the bank.

Categories: Jamsheed
Juicy in the palate. Supple wash of spicy, just-ripe red cherry flavours, bright then finishes with steady, low growl of tannins. Lot of pleasure here.

About the Wine

The cheekily named Pepe le Pinot is an excellent introduction to the Jamsheed portfolio.

It’s sourced from a single Yarra Valley vineyard, Hyde Park specifically. In toe with the rest of his range, there’s a healthy amount of whole bunch on Pepe, and an extended maceration time on skins, for a tannin/colour boost.

It's a wine built for immediate enjoyment, not being stashed away in dark places. Pepe is as good a Pinot as we have seen at this price. If you like the slightly funkier side of Pinot at sub $30, Pepe is the guy for you.

About Jamsheed

Gary Mills is a modern star of Victorian wine. His Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Campbell Mattinson labelled him “a leading producer”, Jamie Goode called him “the new face of Australian wine” and Matthew Jukes went as far as to call the wine of Jamsheed “a revelation”.

With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah for his Jamsheed range, Gary has been one of the loudest advocates for the inclusion of whole bunch ferments and was ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards.

On top of his much sought-after Syrahs, Gary produces excellent textural white wines from varieties including Riesling and Roussanne, and is never afraid to innovate with his quirky and delicious entry level 'Harem' label. 

Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Like this smells of this wine. Red currants, faint mocha, briar, undergrowth, a wild, slightly feral scent but all becoming. Juicy in the palate. Supple wash of spicy, just-ripe red cherry flavours, bright then finishes with steady, low growl of tannins. Lot of pleasure here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
