St Hubert’s take fruit from the lower Yarra here. Winemaker is Greg Jarrett uses a blend of clones: the 114 and 115. Spends 8 months maturation in French oak barriques (around 30% new).
St Hubert’s, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2021
Okay, stepping up in the serious stakes here. Soaked cherry flesh with plenty of brown spice, gamey flesh and forest floor earthiness. Plenty of pinosity. Grippy tannin over delicate fruit with plenty of drive. Quality Yarra example.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
Wine tasted at Treasury Premium Brands 2022 Portfolio tasting, at which I was a guest.
