Warramate Wines was established in 1970 on a spectacular north-facing slope overlooking the central Yarra Valley.
Today the wines are made by Yarra Yerring winemaker Sarah Crowe having been purchased by Yarra Yerings owners in 2011.
The 5 acre plot of Pinot Noir was planted in 2000 and is entirely the MV6 clone. These vines benefit from the sheltering effects of aspect & bordering windbreaks.
The vines are generally spared over-exposure to hot northerly winds & late-afternoon sun in summer which aids in the development & accumulation of delicate, perfumed fruit characteristics.
All Warramate vines are farmed without irrigation.
A highly perfumed aroma of violets, the fruit profile of vibrant red and dark cherries.
A hint of stalk heightens the spice element sitting in the medium weighted silky characteristic of Pinot noir. A very refreshing elegant fruit palate.
Some stalk tannin and minimal new oak (20%) offer background structure and support the fruit.
