Proud Up The Mountain Pinot Noir 2018 750ml 13.5%
2018 STUART PROUD 'UP THE MOUNTAIN' PINOT NOIR
Yarra Valley, Victoria
Stuart Proud, both viticulturalist and adviser to wineries on soil health notes that the reason behind making the vineyard his main focus of attentions and then with minimal intervention in the cellar, leads to wines that 'truly reflect the place they came from'. This Pinot is from 18 year old vines from three different blocks at Gruyere in the Yarra Valley. Aromas of red florals, cherries and pomegranate fruit, dusty lightly chalky tannins with earthy undertones.
Located in the Yarra Valley, 65 kilometres northeast of Melbourne, the thousand candles farm is a historic, sprawling property that stretches over 1100 acres. It comprises of vineyards, cattle pastures, and native bush. They take the approach that the vineyard comes first and foremost. By looking after their soils using biological farming methods, along with minimal intervention in the winery they firmly believe the wines always show more depth, balance and complexity.
