Lightfoot Sons Myrtle Point Pinot Noir

Lightfoot & Sons Myrtle Point Pinot Noir 2017

Gippsland, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
All Lightfoot & Sons’ Myrtle Point wines are made exclusively from grapes grown by the Lightfoot family, at their Myrtle Point vineyard. Located between the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and Bass Strait, the region’s cool semi-maritime climate has proven to be an ideal environment for producing Pinot Noir, and cool-climate Chardonnay and Shiraz.

The 2017 Lightfoot & Sons Myrtle Point Pinot Noir Pinot Noir is an elegant, structured wine, reflecting low-yield viticultural practices and the cool semi-maritime climate. Lovely aromas of cherry and violets are complemented by some more savoury, earthy notes. On the palate these elements are balanced with well integrated French oak and fine tannins, both adding complexity to the wine.

Brothers Rob and Tom Lightfoot are the second generation to manage their family’s vineyard in the remote Gippsland Lakes region where they specialise in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz.

Located between the Dividing Range and Bass Strait, the region is Victoria’s most easterly viticultural area. The heart and soul of the family business is their Myrtle Point Vineyard positioned high on an exposed plateau of Terra Rosa soil above a limestone bluff.

The wines are made by Tom Lightfoot and Alastair Butt. Alastair brings more than 25 years of winemaking experience to the winery, working previously at Seville Estate in the Yarra Valley and Brokenwood in the Hunter Valley. Tom worked a number of vintages in wineries throughout Australia and the USA (making Pinot Noir in Oregon) after completing a Viticultural Science and Wine Production degree. Tom now manages the Myrtle Point vineyard and assists Alastair in winemaking.
