Garnet and ruby colours glistens from these from the Yarra Valley and Strathbogie
Pinot Noir grapes. Endless Pinot Noir shows seductive aromas of herbaceous forest
floor matched with cherries and strawberries Velvety tannins and an soft elegant oak
finish ENDLESS Pinot Noir will transport you back to Burgundy.
The Yarra Valley has been welcomed with open arms and has delivered both the quality and quantity
of grapes that Endless strives for. It was a relatively temperate summer with
an early start following the warm dry conditions in December . Likewise
Strathbogie was a dream vintage with no weather surprises. What has been
delivered is true to form, showing exceptional vibrancy and masterful balance.

Elegance and purity in our Pinot Noir is our Endless pursuit. We pick early to
preserve all the luxurious Yarra Valley and enticing Strathbogie flavours, and
de-stem without crushing. Pinot can only handle so much, the grapes are then
sent to a temperature controlled stainless steel vat where it is cold-soaked 5
days before allowing the temperature to increase to begin fermentation. Cold
soaking Pinot Noir or aqueous extraction before fermentation accentuates the
fresh clean fruit flavours and preserving the unique aromatics. We limit the
time on skins after ferment (alcohol extraction is more harsh) to no more than
10 days which helps with colour stabilisation. After fermentation the racked
wine was run to 100% French barriques where it develops its Endless grace for
