"From French, meaning Miller, the variety is a mutation of Pinot Noir. The leaves of this variety are covered with small white hairs, giving the appearance of the leaves being sprinkled with flour" - Oakridge
"Fruit-laden aromas with raspberry, strawberry and red cherries with notes of pomegranate and a hint of spice.
On the palate it is juicy, textural and expansive; sweet red fruit – red currants and cherries, spice, rhubarb and rosemary. These characters are all drawn together with a refreshing cranberry-like acidity. Sourced from the Willowlake vineyard in Gladysdale in the upper Yarra Valley. Handpicked and de-stemmed for 100% whole berry fermentation on skins for 3 weeks prior to pressing to old French oak puncheons for maturation." - Oakridge
“Bright and light, cherry/berry, sweet and spicy. Tannins are loosely knit and it has a neat little acid kick to the finish. It is juicy with a most thirst-quenching succulence. Is there a better luncheon wine?” – Jane Faulkner, Wine Companion
