2022 Singlefile Single Vineyard Mount Barker Pinot Noir

2022 Singlefile Single Vineyard Mount Barker Pinot Noir
Add To Cart


The pinot noir grape variety is well suited to the cool climate environment of the Mount Barker sub-region of the Great Southern. This pinot noir fruit from Moore River Vineyard typically has strong varietal characters.

2022 delivered a wet winter and spring being reasonably dry. Even temperature days and cold nights helped to retain natural acidity in the fruit and allow full flavours to develop.

Harvested on 24th March 2022, the fruit was picked, gently de-stemmed and then cold soaked for two days. A parcel was barrel fermented and underwent natural fermentation in new French oak, the remainder went to small open fermenters and then to new and used oak. The wine spent seven months in French oak barriques, 30% new, before it was prepared for bottling.


A medium bodied pinot noir with lifted aromas of red berries and spices as well as subtle forest floor aromas which will develop further with time in bottle. These characters follow through on the palate. The wine has a medium weight and a gently textured mouth feel with soft and subtly grippy tannins. The Burgundian oak sits nicely in the background. The wine finishes with good length of flavour and a long finish. It is well suited to complement game or light red meat dishes, and it will reward cellaring.

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.

A fresh and lively wine with a bright, light red colour. The bouquet is perfumed with earthly aromas and flavours. On the palate the soft tannins draw together a subtle spicy ness with red fruits, leading to a strong finish.This is a wine easily matched with food of rich flavours. We paired our tasting with quail cooked with mushrooms and a red wine, port jus. Delish!

Beautiful light cherry-red hue, touch of plum on the nose with tinges of cherry, a really smooth and delicate flavour, softly tannic. Went really nicely with roast pork and all the trimmings!

One of the best valued Pinot Noir's out there. I didn't find this too heavy at all. From the start you the nose get to enjoy a soft aroma of spices. A couple of sips and the palate is tasting some beautiful cherry and light plum flavours balanced by smooth tannins. This was thoroughly enjoyed on a winters night with some slow cooked meat. I will definitely be coming back for more.

Truly delicious Pinot Noir. Drank over 3 nights. Light colour - transparent, almost like currant jelly. Incredibly soft in the mouth with the slightest savoury notes/zests. Hints of apple and cherry. The flavour really lingers in your mouth. Great value - will certainly get again.

Beautiful colour almost glowing. Slightly fuller more red fruit driven Pinot with a hint of damp forest floor. Amazing with roast duck

Deep ruby in the glass. Vanilla, cherry and truffle on the nose. Medium bold palate with a long spicy end palete. Vanilla, chocolate, cherry and a very comfortable mildly tannic oak and leather finish. The finish leaves you wanting the next sip.

Rachel and I tasted this with a spicy Tasmanian Pinot and realised that this great southern Pinot offered a flavour profile that was instantly recognisable and a cosy place for aficionados of WA wine.

The Pinot had an instant impact with my family of 4 tasters who are are all Pinot lovers. As soon as I had decanted the bottle there was a beautiful smell of the fruit and a lovely clear colour. It had a good body and a lovely smooth taste. To our surprise it went beautifully with a spicy chicken soup we were eating.

The Single Vineyard Singlefile Pinot Noir has always been a beautiful wine which was why I was very pleased to see it was sitting in my tasting panel box.

It has a balanced acidity for coming from a cooler region with beautiful fruit characters of cherry, cranberry and raspberry with very well incorporated use of both old and new oak. Typically drinking a current vintage of a wine that has a 30% portion of new oak needs some time to have all of its components mellow out together. However, this Pinot Noir has always been beautiful to drink upon release.

Due to being a very balanced, smooth and easy drinking red that you could have all year round, especially if you briefly chill it in your fridge, it is a stunning wine to bring to any social gathering. It also would please a more critical audience as well due to how well the wine has been crafted.
