VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The pinot noir grape variety seems to be well suited to the cool climate environment of the Denmark sub-region of the Great Southern. The pinot noir fruit from Robertson’s vineyard typically displays floral and perfumed characters with an underlying dense cherry and raspberry fruit profile followed by a subtle savoury finish. All viticulture and winemaking techniques followed are done so with the goal of promoting the unique characters of Robertson’s vineyard. In 2015 an early spring brought about an unusually early start to ripening. Warm days and cold nights helped to retain natural acidity in the fruit.

Harvested in March 2015, the fruit was picked, gently de-stemmed and then cold soaked for 6 days. A parcel was whole bunch pressed and underwent natural fermentation in new oak, the remainder went to open fermenters and then to used oak. The wine spent nine months in Francois Frères and Taransaud pinot selection French oak barriques, 40% new, the remainder one and two years old.

THE WINE

A fuller styled pinot with perfumed aromas of red raspberries, cherries, subtle earthiness and spice. These characters follow through on the palate with a medium weight and textured mouth feel with soft tannins and a long finish. This wine is well suited to complement red meat dishes especially duck. Drink now or allow this to continue to develop in the bottle for up to 7 years.

After being introduced to Pinot Noirs a couple of years ago, Single File is by far the best I have tasted!

As a pinot lover I find Single File exceptional.Lovely fruit gorgeous aroma and well structured. You could pay double and not get the same quality as found here.

Found the 2011 in my local bottle shop and tried it on recommendation of shop assistant. Was an instant convert and have subsequently signed up to receive a regular batch from the winery.

Have had the opportunity to taste the 2015 Pinot Noir, and continue to enjoy this more full bodied style, which provides a refreshing change to Yarra Valley/Mornington Pinots. CJ
