William Downie

Victoria, victoria Australia

Bill Downie established his own label in 2003 after several years living and working in Burgundy. He is fanatical about the quality of his fruit and where it comes from, so where possible sources fruit from vineyards that use biodynamic and organic viticultural practices. By taking the best elements from the Burgundian producers he most admires and allying these to a more technocratic Australian approach, Bill has been able to develop his own style, making him one of the most sought-after producers of Victorian Pinot Noir.

The Yarra Pinot is carefully selected from vineyards situated in Denton View Hill in Yarra Glen. The soils here are grey clay loam over granite and it is the only vineyard in the Yarra planted on granite. The Gippsland Pinot is made with fruit grown on red soil in a vineyard planted in 1990 with a density of 6,500 vines per hectare. The Mornington Pinot is selected from fruit grown on the red volcanic soils of Merricks, the 20-year-old vines are planted at a density of 2,500 vines per hectare. Taste the three side by side and marvel at their differences!
