The Silent Way Pinot Noir is grown at Kilmore all sourced from the Quarry Ridge Vineyard. Planted from the mid 1980s, it's a very cold site, D5V12 and MV6. Lots of rock here- the western boundary was mined for bluestone many years back. Not officially macedon Ranges- about 1 km west of the Macedon GI boundary. A super cool sight so warmer vintage like 2018 suit it well.

Hand harvested fruit was fermented naturally with 10% whole bunches, pumped over daily.20 days on skins, pressed then settled for 5 days then racked to oak for a natural MLF. Only 5% new wood.
Campari notes, black fruits, some cocoa dust and sweet red cherries. Palate is sweet fruited, evenly ripened and shows good powerful flavours- black cherry, some earthy notes and ripe positively structured tannin. This is a firmly structured, sweetly fruited Pinot- showing the positive effects of a cool site in a warm season.

And don't forget this is named after one of the game-changing jazz tracks by Miles Davis. PWS
