Whitebox Pinot Noir 2015 (Yarra Valley)
The Whitebox Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015 is bright scarlet in colour and brimful of varietal character.
Aromas of plum and strawberry dominate the nose, accompanied by subtle spicy notes.
The palate is rich and fruity with every component in balance - French oak, sweet fruit, velvety tannin and a long aftertaste.
Whitebox wines are fashioned with respect to terroir and tradition. Drinking well now, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many years to come.
SOLD OUT - Whitebox Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2017 vintage is now available here.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from our family-owned Yarra Valley vineyards in Gruyere and Coldstream.
Each parcel was fermented separately in traditional open fermenters, and given daily gentle plunging to ensure soft tannin extraction with maximum fruit flavour. Following light pressing the wine went through malo-lactic fermentation and maturation in new & old french oak and temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for periods varying from 6 to 18 months (dependent on wine structure), prior to assemblage of the finished wine. The winery is designed to utilize both traditional winemaking techniques and the latest technologies. The all red fermenters are elevated to a degree that must is gravity fed into the press, avoiding the need for pumping. Winery Notes
