Current Vintage: 2020

Vintage may vary during the year. If you are looking for a specific vintage, please get in touch.

From a long and cool growing season, the 2020 Toolangi Pinot was hand-harvested from 2001 plantings (MV6 clone grapes on the bottom of E Block). The fruit was naturally fermented as whole berries with a five-day cold soak and a total of 14 days on skins. It was pressed to French oak (eight per cent new) for nine months and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Again, this is absolutely outstanding value. It's a bright, perfumed, layered yet juicy Pinot redolent of both a fine vintage and the new approach that Kaspar Hermann has bought to the Toolangi winemaking.

Region

The Yarra Valley is Australian cool climate wine. Sophisticated pinot noir and chardonnay take pride of place here accounting for approximately 70% of all wine produced, but the great new world Syrah being produced in this region is exciting and absolutely something to watch.

The distinct upper and lower subregions and plethora of microclimates in the Yarra Valley mean that the region produces a diverse range of styles - a pinot from the warmer climate Lower Yarra Valley will be different from a pinot from the higher altitude, cooler temperature Upper Yarra.
