Vintage notes: A cooler spring led into the summer months delivering moderate to warm temperatures. The combination of warm days, cool nights, low rainfall, and a long growing season resulted in a more structured yet fragrant pinot noir.
Vineyard notes: The Quarry Ridge vineyard sits at an elevation of 400m on the southern side of the Great Dividing Range just east of the Macedon Ranges GI. The vineyard is farmed sustainably (only very sporadic non-organic sprays as needed) and was planted between 1988 and 1998. An old bluestone quarry with mixed gravels.
Winemaking: Pinot noir grapes are hand-picked and fermented with 10% whole bunches. About 10% new oak is used for elevage, a combination of hogsheads, puncheon, and barrique. 10 months aging in barrel followed by 6 months in bottle before release. Unfined and unfiltered.
Closure: Stelvin ABV: 13%
LEGEND tasting notes: Pure pinot character on the nose: bright red berry fruit, Tasmanian black truffles, anise myrtle, and a light couching of spice. Palate is soft and consummately drinkable, but with a persistent and structuring acid line. Balance is near perfect: savory but juicy, bright but soft. Just a fully open and realized wine.
Label design: The artwork was originally created by friend Daniel Wallace for Matt and Tamara’s wedding in 1997. Local artist and friend Mel Nightingale developed Dan’s original drawings into the current labels. Earthworms, birds, snakes, friendship and love are the symbols for Silent Way.
