Pale crimson red in colour. The bouquet shows savoury notes notes of raspberries and juniper, from a cracking vintage, whole berry ferment to produce perfume and that carbonic spice with a savoury structured palate. The red and black fruits are led by spice, herbal and savoury notes which follow through to a finish of delicately candied with red fruits – very moreish!

Behn (Payten) and Troy (Jones) are two Healesville High School Graduates producing minimal intervention wines in the Yarra Valley. Behn’s dad Pete runs the vineyard side of things and has a long history working in organic vineyards and takes the philosophy into the vineyard. The Payten and Jones home block is in the upper elevations of the Yarra Valley and planted exclusively to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The home block is dry grown, a rarity in the Yarra Valley which means a crop is not guaranteed every vintage. We reckon drinking these wines is like experiencing a band live, as opposed to listening to a studio recorded track.There’s minimal intervention, a bit of ‘raw’ processes, and nothing filtered or cleaned up in any way. The wines aren’t 'squeaky clean', they are a bit 'edgy', even a bit 'raw'.
