Bottle of Proud Primary 'The Eagle' Pinot Noir 2018 750ml

Proud Primary - The Eagle Pinot Noir 2018

$44.00

Region: Yarra Valley

Grapes: Pinot Noir

Organically farmed Pinot Noir that does a very fine job of showcasing the quality and purity of fruit grown by Stuart Proud. Immediately ripe and plush, with layers of characteristic sous bois and subtle minerality on the finish. Well balanced and equally adept as either drinking or thinking wine.

As an experienced practitioner of sustainable farming practices, Proud firmly believes that great wine is made primarily in the vineyard, and we'd say his wines make for a pretty compelling argument.

MORE INFO

Stuart Proud is a farmer first and foremost, and one of the country’s leading practitioners of biological and sustainable farming methods. An impressive history in the vines over the last 25 years naturally led him to begin producing his own wine in 2010.

Proud’s holistic approach in the vineyard is the star of the show at Proud Primary Produce, with winemaking well in the background. “At the core of everything is farming and soil health. Nothing else happens if that isn’t done well.” This passionate and focused growing has lead him to make wines that speak of the soils they come from and the influence of each season.

His wines are savoury, pure, textural and full of personality, made with minimal intervention and additions. Only some gentle plunging and pump overs are done during the fermentation process to ensure fruit purity is retained. Minimising the need to intervene with the ferments is the whole philosophy behind making the vineyard the main focus.
