In stock
Victoria, Australia


William Downie shines brightly among the luminaries of the Gippsland wine movement, drawing upon his experiences from Burgundy, as well as renowned Australian estates like Bass Phillips and De Bortoli.

This Pinot Noir stands as a dazzling testament to the essence of natural winemaking in Victoria. With its luscious, velvety texture and earthy allure, it strikes a harmonious balance between easy-drinking delight and contemplative complexity. A blend of organically-grown grapes sourced from the Mornington Peninsula and King Valley, it undergoes fermentation with wild yeasts and minimal intervention in the cellar.

Bottled without filtration or fining, it beckons to be enjoyed now, yet promises to evolve gracefully over the years to come, revealing new dimensions of its captivating character with each passing sip.

A blend of around 70% Mornington Peninsula and 30% King Valley Pinot Noir. The season was mild and the resulting wines have great aromatics, balance and finesse.
