Marchand & Burch Villages Pinot Noir

The fruit for this Pinot Noir is sourced from the Mount Barrow vineyard located in the eastern, elevated end of the Mount Barker subregion in the Great Southern, it is a vibrant young middle weight wine that has all the potential to evolve and integrate into a fine Pinot Noir over time. Enjoy its youth and exuberance or cellar for further pleasures and insight.

Bright, translucent ruby in the glass, this elegant and energetic Pinot Noir shines with elevated floral and red fruited notes. Savoury earth and spice tones mingle with red cherry, raspberry, rosemary, hibiscus, vanilla, and potpourri on the nose. Soft, silky tannins gather towards the front of the palate, giving way to a smooth texture and rich fruited mid-palate. A lively, lingering acidity points to this wine’s cool climate origin. Impressions of red berries and floral tones remain on the palate, forming a pleasant and dry finish.

Marchand & Burch Wines

The Great Southern is Australia’s largest delineated wine region by area, stretching nearly 200 kilometres both north-to-south and east-to-west along the isolated south coast of Western Australia. Only a very small portion of this larger area is under vine, the remainder being occupied by forest or farmland unsuitable for viticulture. To bring some vinous focus to its vast remoteness, the five main wine producing areas have been officially classified into subregions.

The Mount Barker and Porongurup subregions are of primary importance for Marchand and Burch’s production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These two adjacent areas lie 40 kilometres north of the Southern Ocean, with a cool maritime climate strongly influenced by the inland movement of cold ocean air. This moderates the temperature during the growing season, allowing for longer ripening and the development of complex flavour profiles, which then translate from grape to wine.

The vineyards in both these subregions lie above some of the world’s oldest recorded geology, and imposing granite outcrops are a signature feature. With very little soil disturbance or erosion over many centuries even the soil material itself is highly distinctive. This striking contrast with Burgundy was particularly meaningful and exciting for Pascal Marchand and he convinced Jeff to focus their collaborative energy on these vineyards in the pursuit of an ultimate expression of “new world” terroir.
