ABOUT THE FEATURE WINES

PRC is a collaboration of three great wine mates of North East Victoria. It stands for wines co-crafted by Pete Graham (Domenica, Beechworth), Rowly Milhinch (Scion, Rutherglen) and Chris Catlow (Sentio, Beechworth).

1. Handpicked fruit from the same row of vines is divided among three winemakers.

2. Each parcel is made independently and intuitively in each of our small wineries.

3. A year later we come back together to blend the resulting barrels, creating a finished wine.

PRC Chardonnay 2016

A focused, modern Chardonnay. Grapes were sourced from one of the country's most revered plantings of Chardonnay: Lusatia Park in the Yarra Valley. The vineyard produces elegant fruit and the 2016 vintage showed excellent concentration of flavour.

Rated 94 points, Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front):

"It’s fine and elegant but boasts ample fruit power. It’s chardonnay to the nth degree... Overall style, spot on."

750ml, Alc 13%. 110 dozen produced.

PRC Pinot Noir 2018

Unmistakably Gippsland, this Pinot is earthy with a delicate dark cherry profile. Made with grapes handpicked at the Lightfoot family's Myrtle Point Vineyard, a site producing wines of elegance with fruit profiling as delicate and aromatically expressive.

The shared winemaking vision was to craft a wine of structure and a degree of intensity. A small number of whole bunches and stems were included in ferments, with wine maturing in French oak for 16 months, 15% new.

750ml, Alc 13.4%.
