'Veelkleurig, gelaagd, complex, intens en lang'

Werkelijk schitterend om zo'n Single Vineyard Pinot te ervaren naast de Yarra Valley Pinot van Giant Steps. In alle facetten van de wijn worden er twee of drie tandjes bijgezet. De veelkleurigheid van het geur- en smaakpalet, de gelaagdheid en complexiteit, de intensiteit en lengte, en misschien meer nog dan alles de uniciteit van het gebodene. Dit is geen brede expressie van de regio maar een zeer individuele expressie van één wijngaard. De Primavera Vineyard, in 2001 aangeplant in de zogeheten Upper Yarra Valley, het hoger gelegen, koelste deel van de streek (Sexton en Tarraford liggen in de Lower Yarra Valley). Het zou me niets verbazen als dit over een jaar of wat de nieuwe favoriete Pinot Noir is in huize Schell.

"From the Primavera vineyard at Woori Yallock, planted in 2001 on the same red soil as Wombat Creek. Both destemmed (55%) and whole-bunch components. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. A very bright crimson purple. So pure and perfumed with briary cherries, ripe redcurrants and freshly cut roses. Poised, juicy and energetic, the wine has so much tang and crunch, you barely notice that this is also structured finishing with long, gently puckering tannins. A wine with immediate appeal, but also one that will reward at least another 7-10 years in the cellar." (James Halliday, 97/100, Special Value)

Down the hill by approximately 100 meters from the Wombat Creek Vineyard and planted on the same deep red basalt, the 2021 Primavera Vineyard Pinot Noir was made with 50% to 60% whole bunch and constructed from clones MV6 and 115. It is the leanest note of all of the wines in this collection, but my favorite wine: crunchy, strawberry, red apples, cranberry, redcurrant, red cherry...and abundance of red. The fruit is open and seductive, but it has a gentle herbal edge, like rose petals (specifically David Austin's Boscobel rose), musk sticks and Turkish delight. This is satisfying. Fleshy. Plump. Beautiful.

Red-fruited, nutty, almost raspberry, pomegranate aspects, pips, florals, star anise. It seems slight and lifted, strict and precise, on the whole, but its exuberant fragrance and that slight sweetness to the fruit helps promote an impression of generosity. Talc-powdery, ultra-fine grained, velour tracksuit-esque tannin is another high quality marker, as are the whispers of stalk and briar. This is from a vineyard planted by Lou Primavera 25 years ago at Woori Yallock. Excellent release, no question.

Medium red-purple, bright colour; pronounced spicy, floral and dark-cherry aromas with a lick of smart oak; the palate is rich and full in profile, with abundant softly drying tannins and a bold, up-front structure. A generous pinot, of focused intensity and a long carry. It's refined and aromatic but also powerful, a wine of considerable charm. (Woori Yallock, 230m alt, 35 barrels made)

There’s a very approachable feel to this pinot, with aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants and sweet hard spices, such as star anise. The palate has a polished feel, with a plush texture and a plump blueberry and black-cherry core. Drink over the next six years.
