Giaconda Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

13% abv

Combine red fruits of cherry and raspberry with subtle whole-bunch notes and the fresh morning perfume of damp rose petals, it’s an orchestra of aromas and flavours. Clean and lingering on the palate, yet round and textural whilst exhibiting a light frame supported by fine savoury tannins. An essay in controlled power, complexity and authenticity – one of the best expressions of pinot we have achieved at Giaconda so far, comparable to some of the greats from ’89, 92 and 95. Winemaker notes

“”Long and layered, slowly unfolding earthy, meaty scents of small berries, citrus oil, sweet cherries and underbrush. Becoming smooth and velvety, its pristine palate effortlessly combines small berry, plum and cherry flavour with tight-grained polished oak and slatey tannins, finishing with drive, balance and a savoury aspect.”

Giaconda is one of Australia’s most famous names. The Beechworth winery was established by Rick Kinzbrunner in 1982. A mechanical engineer by training, he became interested in wine in the early 1970s and spent the next 10 years traveling to wine-growing regions to learn as much as possible.

Rick was the first to establish a vineyard of any consequence in Beechworth when he first planted in 1982, but today there are over 30 based in the area. This little-known inland region is in north-eastern Victoria, in the foothills and within sight of the Victorian Alps, approximately midway between Melbourne and Sydney.

Giaconda is best known for its Chardonnay, but also produces Shiraz and Pinot Noir. The wines here are hand-crafted by Rick and his son Nathan, who do everything themselves and only take on help at harvest. Some of the most desirable wines in Australia, and indeed the world, Giaconda’s wines are in regrettably short supply, as they only produce 30 to 40,000 bottles a year.
