Fragrant aromas of cherry and blueberry with hints of spice. Medium bodied style with fine silky length, vibrant characters of cherry, strawberry and stalky savoury and spice notes.
Sourced from low yielding vineyards in the Lower and Upper Yarra Valley, all fruit is selectively handpicked prior to its delivery into the winery. It is made using a variety of handling and fermentation techniques, including the use of whole bunches. Each batch is then matured in new and used oak for nine months, prior to blending and bottling.
The Yarra Valley Pinot Noir is complex, silky and textural; the essence of the Yarra.
Accolades and Awards:
92 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front "I’d have no problem ponying up for this wine. It mines a beautiful pinot zone. It’s sour and undergrowth-y, splashed with herbs and run with sour cherry fruit. It’s dry, ripe, sour and steady, in a good way. Nothing feels compromised. Everything feels in a good place. Love the dry spiciness of this."
From the Winery
An un-seasonally warm Spring led to early budburst and fruit set. Canopies were healthy with yields generally above average. Dry, favourable conditions ensued with rapid fruit ripening and an uncharacteristically compressed vintage. Fruit quality was high, with the wines produced being generous in flavour.
Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries. Situated in the picturesque Yarra Valley east of Melbourne, the steep close planted vineyards of Coldstream Hills have become a signature of the region. So too have its wines, which reflect regional character, consistency and style.
