The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2018 Whitlands Pinot Noir

$29.00 Cellar Door

We have made Riesling from the Croucher Vineyard at Whitlands for 5 years now, and when offered the chance to secure a little of their very cool climate Pinot Noir I jumped at the chance. A warm vintage called for a significant percentage of whole bunches I thought, so we opted for 75%. A two week maceration followed pressing and maturation in old French puncheons, for 8 months only to preserve freshness and aromatics. It is an alpine spice chest! Thyme, lavender, dried pine needles and nutmeg are immediately apparent, then the soft, red fruits flood through. Gentle stemmy grip to close. Super fragrant, super delicious. Drink now.
