VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The pinot noir grape variety is well suited to the cool climate environment of the Pemberton region. The pinot noir fruit from Eastbrook vineyard typically has strong varietal characters. All viticulture and winemaking techniques followed are done so with the goal of promoting the unique characters of the Eastbrook vineyard. In 2018 a mild spring brought about an unusually late start to ripening. Even temperature days and cold nights helped to retain natural acidity in the fruit and allow full flavours to develop.

Harvested on the 28th March 2019, the fruit was picked, gently de-stemmed and then cold soaked for 5 days. A parcel was barrel fermented and underwent natural fermentation in new oak, the remainder went to small open fermenters and then to new and used oak. The wine spent eight months in Francois Frères and Taransaud pinot selection French oak barriques, 42% new, the remainder one and two years old.

THE WINE

A fuller styled pinot with lifted aromas of sour cherries, 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 game meat dishes.

Probably my favourite Pinot Noir on today’s market. Incredibly easy to drink, a higher % Pinot but without the heavy mouthfeel and overwhelming “alcohol” taste you get from heavier Pinot. Currently finishing off a bottle of the 2017 vintage with beef sliders and it is just divine!

A good back-palate finish with slight pepper and acidity. Hints of burnt citrus, with a good finish of tannins, spicy and earthy. The oak is very subtle and for me softens the full tannin finish.

Subtle on the nose with a hint of cherry. Initial palate is smooth and lures one in to the experience. Cherries are forefront with some earthy spiciness. However, it is in the next few seconds to minutes that truly makes this wine a beauty. The fullness (although I would still put it at a medium body) explodes toward the back of the palate with berry/ cherry fruits well balanced with some earthy tones. A great pinot and I cannot wait to see how this develops further. Drink now, drink it next year, drink it much much later!!

This wine on the nose reminds walking through a field of sunflowers on a Sunday afternoon. With a first sip it reminds me soft cherries and earth overtones. the finish comes with a subtle peppery dark chocolate silk on the pallet. This is trully one of the best Pinot noirs in australia. Congratulations to singlefile winemakers for a beautiful well balanced wine. Cheers.
