More about this wine from Yarra Valley, Australia
The Yarra Valley is the name given to the region surrounding the Yarra River in Victoria, Australia. One of Yarra’s first wave of modern-day wineries, Warramate was founded in 1970, which may not be as old as some of the 15th-century wineries we work with in France, but in Aussie terms, these are old vines! The style is resolutely traditional, with crisp acid and a wiry backbone. Then there's cedary oak, tart cherry fruit, and a long and crisp finish.

Warramate Wines is a small, independently owned vineyard founded by Jack and June Church, who first started planting vines in 1969 after an extensive search throughout Victoria for a plot that would be suitable for their dream vineyard. The family business has steadily grown over the decades and took home a major award for Australian Winemaker of the year in 2017. The sippin' is easy on this Pinot compared to some overly jammy Aussie juice, so don't be surprised if the bottle gets emptied quickly.

Eating...

This Pinot Noir is perfect with a classic hamburger, but we got cray with a loaded Aussie burger topped with lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, onions, bacon, grilled pineapple, a runny fried egg, pickled beet, and chili mayo sauce. The food coma is coming.
