The Yarra Valley is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate regions, capable of making classic styles from a wide range of varieties. The Yarra Valley offers Sparkling Wine, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pinot Noir takes pride of place amongst the red varieties in the Yarra Valley. It has won the reputation of being one of Australia’s renowned Pinot Noir regions. Many appreciate its haunting delicacy and surprising length of flavour. The strawberry/plum spectrum of fruit flavours are the most common to be found in Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.
With its origins lying in the esteemed wine producing region of Burgundy, France, Pinot Noir is often described as the most sensuous of all wines. The Maîtresse (French for Mistress) Pinot Noir represents the true seductive nature of Pinot Noir.
The Maitresse is ruby red in colour with slight purple tinges. The perfumed nose shows aromas of savoury cherry, plum and spice with hints of subtle oak. Spicy berry fruit flavours are supported by silky tannins with a finish that will make you long for more. An enticing wine that embodies Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.
