‘Pinot Noir from three vineyards went into this wine in 2021, Harriet’s Vineyard, Boat O’Craigo and Willowlake. 2021 was a beautiful vintage in the Yarra, slow ripening, resulting in lovely aromatics. Extended time on skins has built some lovely texture. The resulting wine has aromas of sour cherry, rhubarb and strawberry, with hints of herb and spice from the wholebunch batches. The palate is well balanced, with moreish acidity, a dry and savoury finish, with some well matured tannin from the extended maceration.’
Rob Hall was a winemaker at the esteemed Mount Mary vineyard for over 10 vintages, and during that time it’s safe to assume he gained great insight into how to make top class Yarra Valley wine. After departing Mount Mary, Rob Hall launched his eponymous label, with a focus on making Yarra Valley varietals to be enjoyed in their youth at a very reasonable price point.
