Stu Proud 'Up the Mountain' Fresh Red 2021
Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria
Stu Proud is a wine maker and viticulturist. Dedicated to using biological and sustainable farming methods to create minimal intervention wines that truly represent the vineyard site and the season they were grown in.
This Pinot is an excellent example of small-batch, minimal-intervention wines. Sourced from 18 years old vines from three different parcels in Gruyere, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel with wild yeasts then aged in older French barriques for a further 6 months.
It’s a bright, vibrant wine, elegant on the nose with rich red fruit aromas and florals with some earthiness too. A great Pinot for summer drinking, taking a chill perfectly, so grab a bottle and head up the mountain with Stu Proud, but be warned, you might want to stay there!
