About The Wine

"Champs de Cerises" is the French term for Cherry Fields, named for the single block in the Upper Yarra Valley that this wine comes from. This vineyard was once a cherry orchard, now winemaker Shaun Crinion considers it the jewel of the vineyards he works with.

This is Shaun's finest Pinot Noir from the outstanding 2017 vintage.

If you love supple red fruits, floral tones and a touch of spice in your Pinot Noir then walk this way. 

Shaun's gentle touch in the winery allows the vineyard to shine. The purity of fruit is a real feature of this wine, it's a class act Pinot Noir from one of the most keenly-watched Yarra Valley producers on the rise.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

A full nose of sweet strawberry and flowers, a dusting of spice and twigs. A super smooth glide of red fruits and a creamy, leesy, oak-spiced centre. It drinks beautifully right away. Supple, juicy and open for business. Pretty as a picture. Lovely. - Different Drop Wine Team
