Australian Pinot. Exceptional quality. Cool climate. Good price. Those eight words don't normally go together. When they do. Bang. Lock it in. That's exactly what we did as soon as we got our hot little hands on Rouleur's Yarra Valley Pinot. Think punchy morello cherry, campari orange and bramble-like spice aromas.  A body of  juicy cherries, touch of whole bunch spice, bright acidity and fine tannins.  

 

Calling all you high rollers. Allow us to introduce one man band Matt East. He grew up in the Yarra Valley, tinkering with his own wine from a young age, dad growing grapes in the back yard. The Rouleur philosophy is tending to pick on the earlier side for a freshness that knocks your socks off without sacrificing flavour. Matt’s rolling/rouleur journey in wine took him from national sales manager for Wirra Wirra to now getting his handy dirty, (cue suit in the bin. Sales script ripped apart. KPIs and spreadsheets deleted.). Rouleur is a tilt of the hat to his dad - lost but not forgotten - and a nod to the road less traveled.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

Our 2021 Pinot Noir displays a touch more weight and complexity than prior vintage, but still remains true to style being finer boned with pretty fruit and bunch character that elevates the wine, providing more layers and interest.

 

On the nose there’s fragrant cherry and rosewater florals, backed by earthy sulfide and subtle stems from whole bunches used during ferment (40%). The palate has plenty of flavour and boasts long, dusty tannins backed by jubey red fruit and anise-like spice to finish.

A wine that drinks well now, but will evolve beautifully in bottle over the next 3 plus years.

FOOD MATCH

Pinot noir and food matching is an open field. Widely considered to be one of the more food-friendly red wines, you’ve got stacks of options to choose from. However… duck is the obvious one. Almost the most well known pairing (after steak and shiraz). Duck and Pinot. Simple. We live in Hong Kong, let's stick with that.
