Boat O’Craigo Black Spur Pinot Noir
Hand-picked and sorted from our Healesville vineyard. The nose is alluring with aromas of fresh red berries. The palate continues with the red berry theme and has some savoury and spice notes. The wine was allowed to mature for 9 months in a mix of new (30%) and seasoned French oak. Oak was selected that highlights the berry fruits, adds palate weight and lengthens the beautiful silky finish. A lovely example of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.
Our winery’s distinctive name echoes that given to a farm in the town of Craigo in Scotland
Where our ancestors settled alongside the docking point for the ferry that crossed the North Esk River. The Boat O’Craigo name and tradition have drifted across seas to settle and book-end Victoria’s burgeoning Yarra Valley with two magnificent vineyards, one in Healesville and the other in Kangaroo Ground. One red, the other white.
As with the ferry’s docking-point, it is here at the gateways to the Yarra Valley that the physical journey of our travels ends, although the journey of the senses is only just beginning.
