Bill established his own label in 2003 after working between Australia and France for several years as a winemaker, where on returning to Australia he started making Pinot Noir from three different sites; Gippsland, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. Here the wines were similarly vinified, allowing for pure expression of soil and climate in each of the wines.
Bill’s wines emphasise purity, time and place, and what you see across his entire range is that the wines taste of where they come from. In a pure, uninhibited fashion, you can taste the saline minerality of the Mornington Peninsula through to the dense, rich, red volcanic clay of the Yarra. The grape varietal (Pinot Noir) becomes less of the focus and more the vehicle for the wine from the vineyard to the glass.
