Yarra Valley Bluestone Vineyard – 100% Pinot Noir
Winemaking
Pinot Noir is a very selective grape. It does not like the heat, but does like the sun. It likes warm days but more importantly likes cold nights. It likes to be on well drained soils, not flat landscapes. It is so demanding that only a few Australian regions can aspire to produce a Pinot Noir of any pedigree. The Yarra Valley has attained that status over the decades and we have set out to support that reputation by sourcing premium fruit from older vines for this wine.

The Blue Stone Vineyard is on the Warramate foothills in the Parish of Coldstream and the soil and altitude is very similar to our home vineyard, which is also on the Warramate foothills.

These mature vines have produced quite a powerful wine full of cherry and raspberry flavours. The fruit is cold soaked and fermented in premium French oak barriques (27% new) using wild yeast. This has created a savoury and textural palate with a very elegant finish. This wine will mature well for the next decade.
