The aroma is enticing with intense plum, cherry and strawberry fruit with a hint of spicy oak. The fresh fruit momentum continues on the palate with vibrant plum and dark stone fruits finishing with some firm acid, beautiful tannins and integrated oak.
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were picked from single vineyards located in North Eastern Victoria. Grapes were crushed during the cool of the evening to retain their varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout the winemaking process. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a dense, rich colour and allowing for gentle and maximum flavor extraction.

"Since its inception in 1968, McPherson Wines has been on an uncompromising quest for quality and a commitment to the very finest in wine-making techniques... My father, Jock McPherson, worked in wineries in the early days of the industry in New South Wales. From him I learned the joys of winemaking, along with an honours degree in the use of colourful language. In 1974 I began winemaking in my own right, and have spent my working life to date in the wine industry.
In 1993 I established vineyard holdings in the Murray Darling region near Mildura. This region principally surrounds the mighty Murray River, the source of much Australian folklore due to its beauty and majesty. I had my eye on the red brick soil of the Goulburn Valley in Central Victoria, and acquired 350 acres which offered great promise for cool climate red wines which today are used to grow the grapes for the Chapter Three and Basilisk wines.
In early 2000, McPherson Wines opened our world class bottling facitily in Victoria. Located next to the winery just outside the town of Nagambie in Central Victoria, we bottle our own wines along with premium wines from wineries all over Victoria."
