CASE OF 6 BOTTLES
Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 - GOLD.
This highly acclaimed Pinot Noir from the Yarra is very herbaceous on the nose with smoky, cherry fruit and pronounced green bell pepper.
Purchased by Phil Sexton in 2013, the Applejack Vineyard was planted in 1997 by highly respected viticulturist Ray Guerin. Today it is meticulously managed by his son Mark. The vineyard is situated in the Upper Yarra Valley at higher altitudes of 300 metres above sea level, resulting in cooler growing conditions - ideal for Pinot Noir. The 12 hectare vineyard sits on a dramatic, east-facing slope of grey-brown clay loams, close-planted with MV6, 114 and 115 clones.
Very herbaceous on the nose with smoky cherry fruit and pronounced green bell pepper aromas. The youthful palate shows complexity with cherries, spiced oak and fine tannins. A wine with great potential to develop and shine.
