Made with the same approach as the Reserve wine, this wine is produced from a different selection of fruit parcels and barrel combinations.
The 2018 wines are characterised by vibrancy and opulence. Our Estate Pinot Noir displays lifted raspberry aromas, with a hint of earthiness and subtle oak. The flavours combine full fruit with fine long tannins, finishing with the elegance and finesse that is the hallmark of TarraWarra Pinot Noir.
2018 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. A slightly warmer season with a mild autumn allowed lovely flavour development with good balance. Cool nights and warm days gave perfect ripening conditions, with the fruit in excellent condition at harvest.
The fruit was picked from various blocks with vines aged between 21 and 33 years old, grown on high north facing slopes to maximize sunshine hours. Northerly winds from Long Gully provide good air flow and favourable micro-climates across the Estate.
