Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2006

External Review by Fame Wine and Tobacco:

The nose shows attractive blueberry, plum and strawberry fruit characters, with Pinot gaminess and spice. Toasty oak is evident, providing additional complexity. A medium bodied wine with supple texture and a fine tannin finish. Dark red fruit characters of cherry and blueberry dominate, with savoury stalkiness and toasty oak evident in the background. The wine has excellent structure and length and will reward careful cellaring.

Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has grown to be one of the Australia’s leading small wineries, with a reputation for producing an outstanding range of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Varietal and Reserve wines. Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour’s drive east of Melbourne, its steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with most of the wine literally being “hand made”. The fruit is hand pruned and partially hand picked; the wine is made mainly using small open fermenters (of three to four tonnes capacity for the red wines, while the whites are principally barrel fermented). Winemaking techniques and philosophies haven’t changed with the growth in production either; all designed to produce elegant wines with a long finish. Read less
