A collaboration between Matt Harrop and his brother Steve. Steve is a musician and record producer- he bought his vintage analogue Soundcraft 2400 desk from U2 in Dublin. He also grows his own Pinot Noir in the Waitaki Valley under the Sublime Label.

Since 2016 the Amen break Pinot Noir has been grown at the extraordinary Zebra Vineyard in Bendigo. Soil here is very weak, loessial and alluvial river terraces.

The ambition with the Amen Break Pinot has been to produce wines with lifted aromatic, textured mid palates and refined, lithe tannins. Hand harvested and naturally fermented. A mixture of clones that are both destemmed whole bunch pressed with no new wood.

Lovely lifted red fruits, some pomegranate seed, lovely textured mid palate and long fine extract at the end. Evenly ripened, beautifully poised wine. Noticably absent is the heaviness of extract or overburden of wood. Pure, delicious Pinot for drinking now or into the future. PWS
