You can earn and use Qantas Points at Kogan.com
Colour – Pale crimson with red hues.
Nose – A complex nose – showing earthy aromas of forest floor and roast beetroot, over a core of cherry Pinot fruit. Hints of red
fruits are evident, as are graphite and green olives. These are all nicely framed by spicy French oak.
Palate – The wine is light to medium bodied, supple and textured – red berry fruits follow on from the nose. The palate reflects
the warm vintage conditions – with fine grained, structural tannins preceding a long cherry, earthy finish.
Hubert de Castella’s passion for the Yarra Valley saw him establish St Huberts in 1862. By the late 1800s it had grown to be the largest estate in the area. The wines enjoyed immediate and on-going success at wine shows both domestically and abroad. The
onset of the Great Depression, the increasing popularity of fortified wine and the emerging profitability of dairy farming saw the vineyard revert to grazing in the 1920s. It wasn’t until the 1960s that the Yarra Valley again rose to prominence as a wine
region and St Huberts was once again one of the pioneers.
St Huberts Pinot is usually designed to be a ‘fuller’ style Yarra Pinot, with more depth and concentration than many of our local brethren. Fruit is sourced from warmer sites – particularly on the Lower Yarra Valley flats. Typically MV6 clone is the base, often 114 and 115 added for their riper ‘fleshy berry’ characters. In the winery, a percentage of whole bunches in the ferments, wild yeast, a little barrel fermentation, some time on lees, and a lick of good French oak add complexity to the wines. Most importantly the wines have to look varietal – look like Pinot (not dry red), and show regional character.
Vintage may vary. Every effort is made to ensure the current vintage is displayed, however variations can occur.
