About The Wine

The Nikkal wines are made by experienced Yarra Valley winemaker, Kate Goodman.

The Nikkal Pinot Noir comes from four vineyard across the Yarra Valley. From a lovely vintage in 2017, Kate uses whole berry fermentation to excellent effect here, bringing forth a bright and cheery Pinot Noir which is ripe for drinking immediately.

It's a lovely example of the approachability of 2017 Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley, the wines are open and generous in their youth.

Perfect for those looking for Pinot to pop and pour.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Tasted these a while ago and thought I’d posted reviews; was surprised to find no mention of the Nikkal wines on the site. This one is Yarra Valley pinot noir from a good vintage, from a range of vineyard sites. Here we go: my notes simply say: “Cherry, apple, violet and beet, woodsy spices about the edges. Neat, compact, attractive.” I think you get the drift. It’s well made and delivers good varietal flavour." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Cherries, raspberries, rhubarb and a touch of spice all find a place to create a vibrant, full and generous wine with a velvety and fleshy texture.

Bursting with flavour, this is a supple wine with youthful juiciness. A blend of pinot noir grapes from four vineyard sites which truly captures the essence of the Yarra Valley. Each vineyard brings a different element to the wine, with the overall theme being bright fleshy fruit.

The four vineyards are: Roundstone Estate, Steels Creek, Upper Ngumby, Yarra Glen,  Gist, Christmas Hills, Willowlake, Gladysdale

I keep every parcel of fruit separate in the winery before and after fermentation. I keep the wine in barrel for six months before I bring the best of all the vineyards together to blend a deliciously succulent wine.
