Seville Estate Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Softness and balance, two factors we look for in premium cool climate Pinot Noir, throw in complexity and concentration and we know we are onto a winner. You’ll be onto a winner if you indulge your hard earned on a case of this palate-awakening Pinot. It’s made with old World techniques so you can be sure it’s earthy and savoury with a gamey complexity to the nose. Soft fruit palate with fine tannins and real persistence this is worth hunting a duck for or going on a duck hunt to your nearest Chinese.

Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Noir, one of the Yarra's most esteemed varieties, is produced at Seville Estate using classic Burgundian techniques. The aim in the winery is to create an earthy, elegant style with gamey, toasty flavours. Low cropping levels ensure the intensity of the fruit flavours, and maturation in French oak creates added complexity.

Seville Estate Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Like all three Seville Pinots, the colour is of utmost clarity and brilliance; no badge of honour of a slightly hazy (turbid) unfined/unfiltered pinot; the bouquet is fragrant and complex with red cherry and spice, the finish long and fine.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
This pushes a lot of pinot-fancier's buttons. It's undergrowthy and gamey, cherried and dry, with a clear, twiggy, resonant finish. It's the kind of pinot noir you'd like to be able to quaff down with gay abandon - there's something very more-ish about it. It's got just the right mix of seriousness and fun. Some might find the finish a little too gamey and dry, but you'd have to be very picky.

Similar colour to Reserve; a more fruit-forward, juicy style with cherry and strawberry fruit; good balance and length; delicious

Bright, clear colour; has immediate varietal expression, with cherry, plum, spice and a touch of stalk; delicate French oak support.

Spicy, vibrant and stylish; complex, ripe plum flavours, but does show some heat (14.5° alcohol) on the finish.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Trendily bottled unfiltered, not an easy task with pinot noir, but seen by some as a passport to authenticity. By the standards of pinot, the colour is quite deep; the bouquet has a complex array of smoky oak, plum and a touch of stem. The palate follows suit, with complex dark plum and a hint of game.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Good colour, clean cherry and plum fruit, and sympathetic oak handling lead into a palate with harmonious mouthfeel and balance, sustained by sweet plum and spice fruit. Oozes development potential.
