WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Western Australian pinot noir style just screams Classical. Long, drawn-out notes, with depth of fruit and a distinct style that is timeless. There’s a hidden complexity to these wines (much like Beethoven), and the subtle aromas in the glass and the soft flavours on the palate always build to a vibrant crescendo.

Pemberton

Like the high notes in a Vivaldi song, pinot noir from Pemberton is all about high tones. Bright acid and ripe red fruited notes burst out of the glass and onto your palate.

Great Southern

Drinking Great Southern pinot noir is like listening to Vanessa Mae play Bach’s ‘Toccata and Fugue in D Minor’ – it’s not until a few stanzas in that you realise she’s playing an electric guitar and the whole game has changed. The wines from Great Southern are exciting spins on classic styles.
