Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Riorret ('terroir' spelt backwards) is an impressive collection of single vineyard Pinot Noirs made by Steven Webber and the team at De Bortoli. All vineyards used for the Riorret wines are grown as biologically as possible, with a strong focus on healthy soils and encouraging natural predators in and around the vine canopy; hence their subtle presence on the labels.

The highly acclaimed Lusatia Park vineyard is found at Woori Yallock in the upper reaches of the Yarra Valley. This 2017 Riorret Lusatia Park Pinot Noir is another beautifully aromatic Pinot Noir that oozes class. Offering excellent depth of flavours; dark cherry, plum and strawberry, this has impressive complexity and the structure to further develop and soften with time in the bottle. A Yarra Valley Pinot Noir of the highest quality that comes with our highest recommendation.

"95 Points. Lusatia Park pinot noir from an excellent vintage. Not that we want to get ahead of ourselves. It’s a sinewy beast. It has flesh and fruit sweetness but peppery, twiggy characters abound. I don’t have the winemaking specs but you’d imagine that there’s a fair amount of whole bunch influence here. There are jellied characters too, and a swoosh of svelte, creamy, cedarwood oak. It’s still coming up, still finding its feet and growing into itself. But I have no hesitation in calling the quality on offer here ‘high’.

REGION: Lusatia Park

VINEYARD: Located at Woori Yallock in the upper reaches of the Yarra Valley. Extraordinary north facing vineyard recently purchased by the De Bortoli family from Kate and Stephen Shelmerdine. Planted in 1985, close vine spacing, lots of manual work in the vines, deep red basalt soils. Typically produces highly aromatic red fruited Pinot Noir that is seriously charming.

WINE ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 13.5%, pH: 3.67, TA: 5.2 g/L

CELLARING: Delicious drinking now but will develop into a wine with even more gravitas and complexity in 4-5 years.
