2017 Precipice Willow Lake Vineyard Pinot Noir
How much will it set me back?
What's the winemaker have to say?
Winemaker: Marty Singh is the man behind Precipice Wines.
Marty has been a fixture of the Oakridge cellar for longer than anyone can remember. Through his years observing the craft of Dave Bicknell and others at Oakridge, Marty has formed his own opinions on winemaking style. Precipice is his chance to put those ideas into practice.
He now sources small parcels of fruit from renowned Yarra Valley vineyards and turns out wonderfully pure and delicate wines.
With a new house, winery and vineyard underway in the Yarra, it won't be long before we see some home-grown wines from Marty. But in the meantime, his delicious offerings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from surrounding vineyards will have to suffice.
Winemaking: The new wave of boutique Yarra Valley winemakers are doing wonders in expressing the unique terroir and character of the region's best vineyards.
This Precipice Pinot Noir comes from the famed Willow Lake vineyard in the Woori Yallock sub-region, and is put together by the skillful hands of Young Gun of Wine nominee Marty Singh.
Marty's time under Victorian winemaking stars Dave Bicknell and Adrian Rodda has served him well, and his wines have elegance, finesse and vibrancy about them. This was all hand-picked and gently de-stemmed, with no whole bunches and no new oak resulting in a really pretty Pinot.
There's a lot of buzz around 2017 Yarra Valley Pinots and this is another belter from a producer on the rise.
