This is Great……and Here’s Why!

95/100 Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot
92/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2021 vintage)
92/100 Nick Butler, The Real Review (2019 vintage)

Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot "Small volume, high quality vintage in the Yarra Valley. A wine that displays both intensity and fruit concentration with elegance and style. A combination of clones and sites has contributed to its complex aromas and intricate flavour combination. Bright cherry characters emerge with a little limestone chalkiness. Fine tannins thread long, while the oak is brilliantly managed. Winemaker Anthony Fikkers has coaxed everything from the fruit to create a superb Yarra Pinot."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Medium ruby-purple colour, bright and fresh looking; the foresty aromas reflect bunchy influence, while the mid-palate is fruit-sweet and delicious, with ripe fruit leading over superfine, subtle tannins. A medium-weight, accessible pinot that drinks very well now and should hold for a few years. Lovely textured wine." (2021 vintage)

Nick Butler, The Real Review "Bright, pale red colour in the glass. Vibrant red and purple berries, cherries and herbal spice. Oak is quiet. Sapid and serious, winemaking artifice unleashed to great effect. Excellent value." (2019 vintage)

Winemaker "Intense purple red in colour. Aromatics of blood plum, ironstone, thyme, and pomegranate. It has a well structured but also subtle palate; the intensity of the vintage can easily be seen but there’s also an elegance that Pinot Noir does so well. Additional flavours of morello cherry and Campari, and silky tannins from both skin and stalk make this a very complex wine."

Alcohol: 13%

Rising Vineyard is nestled in a valley on the outskirts of the beautiful township of St Andrews - set among unspoilt bushland and rolling hills in the Nillumbik Shire. This subregion is like no other. Nillumbik is derived from the Wurundjeri term for the area nyilumbik, which literally translates to dumb or bad earth, and our terroir is unique to the rest of the Yarra Valley.

At 245m above sea level at its highest elevation, the vineyard gently rises and reaches out of the valley on its east, west, north and south-facing slopes. Here the region’s stars, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, prevail. Small parcels of Shiraz, Semillon, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Savagnin and Sauvignon Blanc persist from original plantings in 1984.
