Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France, where it is renowned and revered. The name is derived from the French word for “pine” and “black” alluding to the varietals tightly clustered dark purple cone-shaped bunches of fruit. The true character of Pinot Noir is expressed when it is grown in cool climates such as South Gippsland.

South Gippsland is regarded in Australia and around the world as a region ideally suited for the growing of Pinot Noir, the finesse, the elegance and the lightness achieved in this region are all characteristics associated with this complex variety.
