Tasting notes on the wine:
Single vineyard pinot noir that was hand-picked, de-stemmed, and fully fermented in open-top fermenters (with a small addition of whole bunches). It comes to us from the Yarra Valley, known as the birthplace of Victoria's wine industry with vines dating back 170 years. Dark hues and a classic pinot noir nose with plum, spice, strawberry, and fall leaves. The palate is light to medium bodied and makes for an absolute classic with silky notes of red cherry and juicy plum. Pair it with roast chicken, pork, or your favorite pasta.
About the winemaker:
"The wine regions of the great state of Victoria are some of Australia’s most picturesque and historical. Today we can expect to see exciting wines and evocative wine styles as common fare. Hare & Tortoise represents the steady pursuit of fine, individual, regional wines of great drinkability & interest through patience, knowledge and a hands-off approach to winemaking." — Little Peacock
