April News Letter 2017 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir The 20th Vintage
Our first pinot noir release was from the 1997 vintage, the vines where just three years old then. The wine style has since evolved towards a more refined and elegant pinot, like nature, slowly but surely.
Some of you might feel slightly stressed at the moment, but don’t panic we have the perfect elixir for you, an overnight sensation that took 20 years in the making.
Autumn is the perfect time to drink pinot, with the back ground of yellow and red leaves on the trees, a casserole simmering on top of the stove; a glass of crimson red wine scented with earthiness ripe berries and forest floor.
The palate of the 2017 is generous and elegant oozing of red berries and fine oak tannins, the finish lingers into satisfaction. 2017 was a very good year in the Yarra Valley for pinot noir.
The Cellar Door will be open on the 5th of April 1st Sunday of the month for take away wine. Current social distancing rules will be observed and unfortunately no food will be served on the day. You can of course order your wine on line as usual, even if you live in the neighbourhood and it will be delivered. We do understand the principle of isolation. (I’ve been practicing it for twenty-five years.)

Since most of the wine making start’s in the vineyard, in was imperative to choose a site that would offer as much complexity and diversity as possible. Single vineyard wines are more at the mercy to their terroire than regional blend. To preserve the single vineyard characteristic at Wedgetail we employed a minimalist approach to wine making, which means less interference that leads to less additives, less pumping and filtering. The purity of the fruit is blended for an absolute delectation.
