The Wine: Boat O’Craigo ‘Black Spur’ Pinot Noir

The Boat O’Craigo Pinot is a beautiful expression of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. Lovely bright crimson in appearance with aromas reminiscent of light red fruits like strawberry, plum and raspberries. These fruit follow through to the palate with silky tannins creating a beautiful mouthfeel. MV6 clone, hand pickedfrom our Healesville vineyard. 20% whole bunch added back to ferment, to add texture and complexity. Allowed to mature for 9 months in a mix of new (30%) and seasoned French oak.

The Winery:

50 acres of vines, spanning across two stunning sites, enables Boat O’Craigo to produce outstanding estate grown wines across a range of noble varieties.

Healesville is the cooler, more sheltered vineyard site nestled in the foothills of the Black Spur Ranges has alluvial river gravel soils and has perfect growing conditions for our early ripening varieties including Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir being the only red vines.

Kangaroo Ground is a warmer site on the western edge of the valley with its rich black volcanic, basalt soil, North East facing slope, giving it maximum sun is the home of our Black Cameron Shiraz, Braveheart Cabernet Sauvignon and several other red varietals even Grenache.
