Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Medium red with purple hue. Nose: Vibrant cherry fruit characters are underpinned by savoury, gamey notes and spice. Attractive French oak is evident but does not dominate. Palate: Medium bodied in style, the wine has great texture, elegance and length. Fine chalky tannins provide structure to the palate and are complemented with hints of whole bunch stalk and fine grained French oak. Ripe fruit characters of cherry and raspberry are evident with gamey and savoury overtones.

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

Full of blackcurrant fruits on the nose, finely oaked on the palate, while releasing rich fruits on the aftertaste. Fine wine.
