Maligned by some and revered by others, Pinot Noir certainly is divisive, but we all love it at WD. The truth is, it’s a bugger of a grape to grow well, that’s in the handful of regions that can actually grow it well and it's harder still to turn into something worth drinking.

We have spent many an eve discussing life, the universe and everything with a bottle of Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula or, indeed, Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir at the table… and the answers to the questions posed are always more profound in the presence of this most noble of grape varieties.

An Adelaide Hills Pinot channelling the Yarra Valley! Plush perfumed fruit here leading a super silky palate. Blue and purple perfumes lead to a palate with more of the same, then made more serious with tobacco, black cherries and a fine line of tannins. A playful and quite complex... Learn More
