William Downie is a young winery that has quickly developed a reputation as one of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir producers. The winery is based in Gippsland in eastern Victoria and also produces wine from vineyards in the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula.
Perhaps the most lifted and aromatic wine from the 2015 vintage. It shows blackberry, blackcurrant, violets, damp red earth and wood spice on the nose. The palate has more black fruit as well as spice and some herbal undergrowth. The wine is textured and long with noticeable, chewy tannin. Classic South Gippsland!
