Pinot Noir from two Gippsland vineyards, one of which is biodynamically farmed by Bill Downie and Patrick Sullivan in Baw Baw Shire, Gippsland, Victoria.
Here's what Bill had to say: "A blend of 50% Matthews vineyard at Berry’s Creek in South Gippsland and 50% estate grown fruit from our Baw Baw Shire vineyards. The Matthews vineyard was planted on red volcanic soil in 1998 and has always been dry grown. It is a cool, damp site and the vines grow dense, lush canopies. The resulting wine has complex berry fruit aromas including blackcurrant, raspberry and blackberry with subtle wood spice and earth. While it shows the red earth and dark fruit aromas we have come to expect from the Matthews vineyard, the Baw Baw Shire components provide the structure, weight and complexity. Drink 2020 - 2035"
