Rees Miller 2004 Wilhelmina Pinot Noir
Winery/Brand: Rees Miller
The pinot noir is made from the oldest vines on the estate. A distinctly balanced and savoury pinot with black cherry fruit, fine tannin and earthiness. The wine lingers on the palate with flavours of savoury spice, mocha and earth. Ideal with game dishes.
"The Rees Miller Estate is a compact little operation on the highway to the snowfields, just outside Yea. It is an unfussed, hospitable little farm with a cellar door built in the time-honoured "tin shed" style. Wines from other vineyards in the area are also available here, a great example of regional cooperation. The climate is cool but the good summers can provide ideal ripening conditions for making wines that are out of the Aussie mainstream, more European accented. This is a challenge that Rees and Miller accept, making exotic Shiraz and Shiraz-Viognier that are strongly reminiscent of France’s Rhône Valley. Chardonnay is made with a similar Gallic slant."
