Are you Game? Pinot Noir Wine Bottle

As a family of hunters, farmers and vignerons we are passionate about sourcing our food from the wild, growing it at home and matching wild textures and flavours with unique wines. Our Are you Game? wines are an ode to socially conscious consumption and aim to bring awareness to meat with merit. Intensely aromatic yet light bodied and fine in texture, each wine is blended with a dash of an alternative varietal to add complexity and encourage discovery in food and wine.

Bright cherry red with medium depth of colour, this Pinot Noir exudes aromas of strawberries and cherries, balanced with savoury notes of bracken and earth. Flavours of raspberry are cut with fresh acidity found in cool climate Pinot Noirs.

Fermented with wild yeasts, matured for 5 months in new (20%) and old (80%) French oak, and finished off with a dash of Sangiovese (15%) . The Sangiovese provides complex dusty tannins in the wine, helps brighten the red hues of colour and also adds a savoury quality on the palate.

Wine Making

2019 was yet another record breaking warm season. Dry and hot conditions made for low yields and high quality fruit. Pinot ripens very quickly in these temperatures so with attention to detail we were able to pick at peak flavour without letting the fruit over ripen. Made from fruit from our two family vineyards, Upton Run and Billis in the Strathbogie Ranges.
