Victoria is the ‘classic rock’ of wine regions. You know all the songs and you love to sing along to them. Loudly. It’s got the heartfelt ballads of the Mornington Peninsula, the sexy slow jams of the Yarra Valley and the funky, cool tunes that you find in Macedon, Ballarat and Gippsland. Victorian Pinot is always on high rotation on our playlist (or cellar) because we know it’s always a crowd pleaser.
Drinking Yarra Valley pinot is like listening to the first line of Bruce Springsteen’s I’m On Fire. When the first hit of red fruit slides down your throat, and the acid profile and tension reverberates through your body, you really feel that sexy slow jam.
Macedon and Ballarat
The cool kids of the Victorian wine regions. Whether it’s the classic styles of Bindi and Curly Flat from the Macedon Ranges or experimental deliciousness from Eastern Peake in Ballarat, all the wines made in these regions are quintessentially cool.
Earthy and full of soul, Bellarine Peninsula (and Geelong) is to pinot noir what Eric Clapton’s ‘Layla’ is to rock. Good times guaranteed
