Rob Hall Pinot Noir
Rob Hall Pinot Noir is a blend of vineyards. Willowlake cooler southern end of the valley, and Harriet’s vineyard south of Healesville, it lies somewhere between the other two in it’s geography and climate. An excellent drink in front the tellie. Soft tannis and an elegant finish.
I grew up in Healesville, and did a little bit of summer work in vineyards, starting in ’91. In ’99 I started working in wineries full time. I only occasionally look back and wonder ‘what was I thinking?’
My first few years in wine were spent at Yarra Ridge and Punt Road, grunt work mostly.
From 2002-11 I was fortunate to serve in the role of winemaker at the revered Mount Mary Vineyard. Despite 10 vintages there, it went by in a flash. The first few years were nerve-wracking, in my opinion I was too green for the role, I wasn’t going to knock it back though.
Then 3 years at Kellybrook Winery, a great experience with a good friend, and simultaneously starting my own label, before taking the leap into fulltime self-employment in 2014.
