From the rolling elevations at the Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills, winemaker Anthony Fikkers crafts wines that express both the power and grace of this unique part of the Yarra Valley. Sourcing small premium parcels of fruit from emerging varietals in the vineyard, Anthony's aim is to produce wines of beauty and clarity that are surprising yet authentic. Free and unrestricted in his winemaking approach and with a philosophy of minimal intervention, each wine is allowed to express fully its origins.
Small volume, high quality vintage in the Yarra Valley. A wine that displays both intensity and fruit concentration with elegance and style. A combination of clones and sites has contributed to its complex aromas and intricate flavour combination. Bright cherry characters emerge with a little limestone chalkiness. Fine tannins thread long, while the oak is brilliantly managed. Winemaker Anthony Fikkers has coaxed everything from the fruit to create a superb Yarra Pinot.
