Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges at 130 to 210 metres above sea level, alongside the vineyards of Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills, the Sexton vineyard is exposed and demanding. The topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Vigour and bunch yields are naturally low in this environment. Biodynamic vineyard management principles are being introduced with the purpose of further distinguishing the site and improving grape and wine quality.
This Pinot Noir is vivid ruby red in colour. Aromas of ripe strawberries and floral notes follow through to the palate. This wine is medium bodied with fine tannins and a flavoursome finish
