The Gruyere sub-region of the Yarra Valley where Tokar Estate sits, produces a more savoury, dark fruited and structured Pinot Noir than other parts of the Yarra Valley.
Our Pinot Noir is made from the fruit of the two Pinot blocks at the entrance of Tokar Estate, planted in 1996 and 1998. The main difference between the blocks is the orientation, Pinot A faces West whilst Pinot B faces East. From one we get structure and power and the other provides prettiness. Both blocks are Pinot clone MV6 and are spur pruned on VSP trellis.
This modern Yarra Valley Chardonnay was estate grown from mature vines in Coldstream. The fruit was picked with a mix of golden and green berries. From the green berries we get the lemon/lime acidity and drive. The golden berries have received more sunlight and they deliver stone fruit flavours.
The grapes were hand picked and pressed with the cloudy juice going to barrel (500L French oak Puncheons) for fermentation using wild yeasts. Malo was not encouraged with this wine and the wine remained in barrel with the yeast for six months. This time in barrel has given the wine complexity and richness whilst keeping the wine fresh and youthful.
With flavours of nectarine, lime and hazelnuts, this wine makes a wonderful match with your summer seafood and salads.
