Payne’s Rise is a boutique winery based in the prestigious Upper Yarra Valley, specialising in small batch wines produced from carefully selected, estate-grown fruit from their vineyard in Seville. The ethos behind the vineyard is to produce classic, fruit-driven wines with a complexity that reflects the unique expression of their cool-climate Upper Yarra heritage. Wines are made by celebrated winemaker Franco d’Anna.
Hand-picked, destemmed, straight to fermenter, cold soak for 3 days, aged in new (20%), 1 yo (20%) and 2-3 yo oak for 10 months, no fining or filtration. The cloudy, cherry-red appearance is nothing to be concerned about, indeed it's an indication that all the pinot goodies have not been fined or filtered away. A vibrant, youthful look and scent of fresh cherries, raspberries, cranberries with floral musk, dried flowers. Juicy-fruited, the palate works the mouth with energy.
