Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia
The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.
All of the fruit is sourced from Fowles estate vineyards in the super cool-climate Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria at an elevation of over 1,600 feet. The fruit for this wine was harvested from our family vineyard Upton Run high in the Strathbogie Ranges over several days in late February to early March. .
This Pinot Noir was fermented in sweep-arm stainless steel fermenters to maximize gentle flavor and color extraction, while preserving primary fruit flavors. This wine was fermented using wild yeast to enhance the complexity and texture of the wine. Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
