2016 Pinot Noir

Vintage Details

A very warm spring lead to an early and even bud burst across all varieties. Then the heat in December and early January gave us the earliest vintage on record. We picked one block of chardonnay at the end of February! Unheard of at Gembrook.

We are very happy with the resulting wines. The cropping was normal, unlike the small crops of 2014. Across all varieties, the wines have great tannins, and savoury structure. Here in the Upper Yarra Valley, our wines will be long lasting.
