About The Wine

While he might be best known for his powerhouse examples of Canberra District Shiraz, winemaker Alex McKay has a deft touch with lighter, more delicate varieties.

The limited release Pinot Meunier is a great example of the light shade of his winemaking prowess.

The fruit comes from high up in the NSW back country, Tumbarumba is a true cool-climate region and Meunier loves it chilly.

Some whole bunches were used but not a whole lot else - it's just about a bouyant, delicious red wine that can be knocked back in the warmer months.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The wine combines the freshness, fragrance and brightness of cool-grown Pinot Meunier with a lively, spicy and savoury palate. The nose is delicately perfumed with light red currant and strawberry, soft smoky aromas, peppery spice notes and fresh thyme. Bright red fruit flavours burst from the mid-palate, which is framed by fresh acidity, complex spice and savoury, moreish tannins." - Alex McKay, winemaker

Additional Info

From The Producer

Season

Typical spring weather preceded a relatively hot and dry summer. The long, warm ripening in Autumn resulted in disease-free fruit of the highest quality.

Viticulture

Courabyra vineyard sits on a west facing slope on deep weathered granite soils near Tumbarumba, at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. Pinot Meunier is grown on a sloping block with East-West row orientation. The vines are cane-pruned and vertically shoot-positioned, with every leaf carefully placed!

Winemaking

Pristine grapes were hand harvested in mid-March. Approximately 25% whole-bunches were included in the ferment which was worked mainly with pigeage. After pressing, the wine underwent the malolactic fementation in a mix of new and older Allier barrels before bottling in June 2018.
