The 2023 Cathedral is a blend of around 25% Mornington Peninsula, 25% Alpine Valleys, 25% Mt Gambier, 15% Henty and 10% Upper Goulburn Pinot Noir. The season across southeastern Australia was cool and wet early, leading to another season of poor flowering and low yields. The second half of the season, however was warm and dry giving wines of great depth, aroma and tannin.

Winemaking remains, as always, very simple. The grapes were left to ferment naturally with no punch downs or pump-overs and no temperature control. After three weeks maceration, the wine was pressed to tank where it remained for malolactic fermentation and maturation.

The wine shows bright raspberry, pomegranate and red currant fruits as well as cherry pit and rose petals. The palate is fine and chewy with more red fruits as well as cinnamon, mace and clove characters. It is precise and well defined. While the wine is not intended for long term cellaring it will benefit from 3 to 5 years rest.
