2018 Payne’s Rise ‘Mr Jed’ Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
Tim and Narelle Cullen established their vineyard in 1998. Their property is in a prime spot, next to Oakridge and Dominique Portet. They run all forms of the business, except making the wine, which is done by Franco D’Anna from Hoddles Creek. The latest PN has aromas of paprika and smoked meats. The palate has sappy, spicy characters, mulberry fruit flavours and minerally back bone.
