The 2016 Mandala Yarra Valley Pinot Noir Story

Pinot Noir is a red wine grape variety associated with the Burgundy region in France. The name derives from the French words for "pine" and "black", which reference the similarity between the clusters of Pinot Noir grapes and the shape of pine cones! The Yarra Valley is one of the best regions in the world for producing highly-sensitive Pinot Noir, which is one of the few exceptional wines to reflect the specific land and climatic conditions into the taste of the wine. Pinot Noir is Charles' first love, leading him to the Yarra Valley back in 1999, where he developed the Yarra Junction vineyard to plant Burgundian clones for premium Pinot Noir production.
