Pinot Noir 'Explorer' 3-pack

Unlike any other variety, a love affair with Pinot Noir is a rollercoaster ride – each dizzying high comes with a lurching descent. It can be exceptionally hard to find consistency and quality with Pinot Noir, and there is always a price tag attached to the best wines. Pinot Noir is known as the heartbreak grape because it is hard to grow, hard to ripen, hard to vinify, and needs expensive, good-quality oak to truly shine. Bad Pinot can be thin, astringent, sour, bitter, hard – just to name a few common adjectives. But good Pinot Noir is one of the best wine experiences in the world – seductive, silken, wildly aromatic; vibrant, velvety and seamless. That’s why we’ve scoured the best regions, styles and winemakers to create an array of Pinot Noir that is truly worth celebrating.

Williams Crossing Pinot Noir, Macedon Ranges

The cool, mist drenched Mount Macedon can produce simply magical Pinot Noir upon its hallowed soils. Two names in particular stand out; Bindi, and Curly Flat. Founded in 1993, Curly Flat use careful viticultural practises, including well-thought out biodynamics and an unfaltering attention to detail. Their Pinot Noir is one of the most collected wines in Australia. Williams Crossing is somewhat of a baby Curly Flat Pinot – a velvety and elegant wine, this homage to its older sibling is laden with black cherries, fine tannins, and aromatic, twiggy spices woven throughout.

Crittenden Estate Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula

Mornington Peninsula is one of the more recent Pinot Noir sites that rose to fame; the coastal surrounds and moderate temperatures making it an ideal spot to retire by the beach and plant a vineyard. The style of the Peninsula is quite voluptuous and broad, with a plushness of texture that begs another glass. Crittenden Estate’s offering is opulently aromatic, with lifted red cherries, floral notes and a smoky, truffle character giving a lovely savoury twist to the wine.

Precipice Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley is home to some of Australia’s greatest Pinot Noir; producing an elegant, structured style with a gorgeous aromatic lift. Far from uniform, the Valley has been carefully studied in recent years and divided into Burgundian style sub-terroirs, allowing even further expression of this noble grape. Precipice is a gorgeous, lifted Pinot Noir with vibrant acidity, showing red cherries, sour plum, and a lovely earthy, mineral undercurrent. With a supple texture, it is light on its feet without losing any character or intensity.
