Wines like this don't come around very often.

I'm talking about a premium Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, from a 10/10 vintage with beautiful complexity. A wine that James Halliday at release praised for its 'dark fruit and multi-spice aromas' with a 'savoury bent giving the texture, complexity and drive only the best Pinots have'.

I can't think of the last time we had an aged Pinot Noir like this, let alone from one of the country's greatest makers. What a treat! A very limited treat however, as this wine can't last long - and once it's gone, that's it forever.

This is the best that's out there, an extremely rare wine that has only come our way thanks to our deep connections with the wine industry. A unicorn wine that will NEVER come again.

Expert Reviews

94 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionWild yeast-fermented contract-grown grapes, neither fined nor filtered. The colour is still youthful; the bouquet has dark fruit and multi-spice aromas, the palate taking these to another level, with a savoury bent giving the texture, complexity and drive only the best pinots have.

How's it taste?

Lovely aged characters coming through in this wine, the brightness of red berry fruits still strong, but now complemented by some floral notes, violets and licorice. Silky smooth tannins.

How was it made?

This wine was made form the highest quality hand-picked grapes, grown to our exacting standards from selected local vineyards. Perfectly developed grapes from the 2010 season has resulted in this intense wine showing dark red fruit, plum and exotic spice aromas. The palate is rich with mouth-filling tannins leading to a long, complex and structured finish. Wild yeast fermented, minimally handled, unfined and unfiltered.

Who made it?

Diamond Valley was established in 1976 by the Lance family in Melbourne's beautiful Yarra Valley wine region. The aim and philosophy was simple – to grow the finest grapes possible, luscious, ripe and with excellent varietal character, and to handcraft these grapes into elegant and distinctive wines of the highest quality. Since the first release in 1982, Diamond Valley Vineyards has enjoyed outstanding success with its wines, yet has through choice remained one of Australia's smaller wineries. By adhering to the founding philosophy, the wines have been consistently excellent, amassing a tally of awards quite out of proportion to the size of the winery and justifying Diamond Valley's insistence on quality before quantity.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
