Purveyors of fine grape juice
2018 William Downie Baw Baw Shire gippsland, australia
$72

Born and raised in Gippsland, William has been making wine in various places for 15 years.
His wines have, until recently, been made from purchased fruit from the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and South Gippsland. As of 2017 he and Patrick Sullivan lease 5 vineyards in Baw Baw Shire and farm them organically. William and his wife Rachel also own a property in Yarragon called Guendulain Farm which includes a vineyard, orchard, vegetable garden as well as producing pork, lamb, beef and poultry.
For my money he is one of the best Pinot Noir makers in the country, and this wine speaks to that. Plush, elegant and extremely refined. Seriously good drinking.
