This wine displays fruit aromas of black cherry, sage and blueberries. A dusting of clove-like oak completes the bouquet.
With flavours true to the promised aromas, a highlight of this wine is its graceful core weight that carries from start throughout the long finish. Chalky texture provided by the natural tannin acid structure of the fruit, ensures a savoury balance matched to sweet fruited Pinot Noir character.

James Halliday's Wine Companion95
""Hand-picked fruit, 5 days' cold soak, wild-yeast open-top fermentation, 14 days on skins, mlf, 10 months in French oak barriques (33% new). Winemaker Scott Ireland's signature aromatics are all over this impressive youngster, with wild herbs, potpourri, violets, earth and, yes, red berries – alive and vibrant. Fills the mouth with flavour and doesn't let go. Beauty, form and persistence.""
""This is a bloody good wine. So complex, so silken, so interesting. It brings round after round of undergrowth, leaf, ripe red/black cherry, smoked meat and more. It has tannin, integrated. And yet a real juiciness to the finish. The main take-home here though is the wine’s complexity. It has so much going on.""

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.
Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.
There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.
The wine regions surrounding the town of Geelong are varied and diverse, from the subregions of the Surf Coast and Otways to the Bellarine Peninsula and Moorabool Valley.
Historically, Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria (in the 1800s) and in more recent times has undergone somewhat of a renaissance. In the last few decades, winemakers have been rediscovering the rich soils and a climate that is somewhere (some say halfway) between France's Bordeaux and Burgundy regions.
The region is known for boutique, family owned winegrowers producing quality hand crafted wines, more so than any bigger winery operations. Varietally speaking, Geelong is renowned for its superior Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Whilst these 3 are the staple of most winegrowers and makers, the more adventurous have been known to grow and make Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Merlot and even some of the more left-field types like Primitivo, Gamay, Carmenere and Langrein.
