Bill Downie established his own label in 2003 after several years living and working in Burgundy. He is fanatical about the quality of his fruit and where it comes from, so where possible sources fruit from vineyards that use biodynamic and organic viticultural practices. By taking the best elements from the Burgundian producers he most admires and allying these to a more technocratic Australian approach, Bill has been able to develop his own style, making him one of the most sought after producers of Victorian Pinot Noir
Perhaps the most lifted and aromatic wine from the 2015 vintage. It shows blackberry, blackcurrant, violets, damp red earth and wood spice on the nose. The palate has more black fruit as well as spice and some herbal undergrowth. The wine is textured and long with subtle tannins.
