No acid additions. No fining. No filtering. Just pure organic Beechworth Pinot Noir. It has really come to life since we tried it six months ago. Wonderful pinosity on the nose shows floral rose petal and bright red fruits echoing the light to medium-weight palate. Red cherries, a wisp of wild strawberry, and tart cranberry infused with hints of ’twiggy’ light herbal savoury nuances. Very pretty indeed. Gorgeous!

Tasted blind in a line-up of twenty Pinot Noir, and liked it immediately. But my oh my. What to do when it’s not CM or MB reviewing these wines! Characterful wine dancing to its own tune. Sweet cherry, liquorice pastille, mint and amaro herbs, slight cedar wood in support. It’s medium-bodied, succulent and laced with cool herb perfume, fresh and fine and dusty in tannin. Strange to say, it has a kinship with many an Alto Piedmont wine, which gets me in the zone straight away. And the finish is long with the zest of orange, cherries and pine perfume. Very different from most Australian Pinot Noir, but in a very good way.

Producers notes

We make a range of wines from Beechworth, the King Valley, and occasionally the Alpine Valleys as we've been waiting for our own property to reach maturity. The Thorley wines are solely from our farm. The Brunnen vineyard is a tiny parcel of vines across the road from us owned by our neighbours, which we've been working with since 2014. The Obstgarten wines are from a high altitude Riesling vineyard in Whitlands, King Valley. Our Prêt-à-Blanc, Prêt-à-Rosé and Prêt-à-Rouge wines are all blends, assembled with an eye to easy drinking.

Every one of our wines is made with hand-picked fruit. The wines ferment with only indigenous yeast (the waxy stuff on the outside of the grape) and if the wines go through Malolacatic fermentation, then that is spontaneous. Where possible, we'd like the only addition made to our wines to be preserving sulphur dioxide. Once our own vineyard is old enough to be mechanically cultivated, we will undertake conversion to organic viticulture there. 

We spend a lot more time in the field than in the cellar, so our winemaking practises are pretty simple. We don't fine, and only filter our white wines.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
