Two Clowns Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2018 750ml
Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
The most Romantic and well loved grape in the Two Clowns family grew up in the Yarra Valley. Aromas of red berry fruit leap out, with touches of oak and a slight hint of smoke.
The mouth feel is fleshy with full bodied flavours of black current and mulberry. A wild heart of oak creeps up and strengthens the spine.
Lush and soft tannins.
After a warm January, the Yarra Valley experienced near perfect conditions for the latter part of ripening. Moderate days and cool nights resulted in fruit with optimal ripeness and flavours at lower sugar levels. Smaller yields were in hot demand, offering exceptional concentration and flavour. We are so excited to say that what has been produced is wine of exceptional balance and strength that will be a vintage to cherish.

The whole bunch component has fallen into place very well against a back drop of lovely red fruits, fine yet substantial tannins and balanced oak. This is how we would love all our wines to be at this stage of life. Drinking really well now, showing a clear representation of terroir and showing promise of a great future. Matured for 8 months in 11% new and 15% 2nd fill Allier barrels.
