Vineyard - GI Region - Yarra Valley (Tarrawarra)
Payten & Jones Vineyard Pinot Noir
Vine age 25 years old
North South rows
Silty clay loam over a brown clay, high organic content
The vineyard dominates here, adding complexity to subtle oak. 100% carbonic fermentation for that red fruit hit. Matured with no sulphur to develop tannin and colour and only a small dose before bottling to retain freshness. 500L barrels and only two of them at that.
