One of Australia’s favourite pinot noir’s
Our crowd favourite, the red wine that is enjoyed by many. In fact 6Ft6 Pinot Noir is the fourth highest selling pinot noir in Victoria. Why? Because it’s so versatile, matches to most wine tastes and most meals. No need to buy three different wines to match with the salmon, pasta or lamb ordered when out to dinner, pinot has you covered.
With a later flowering in 2019 due to a cooler than average spring, the 2020 vintage was always going to be slow to start. The poor flowering conditions also contributed to a lower number of bunches and smaller berries. This held true throughout the season, with low yields that were spread throughout all varieties. Preventative action in the vineyard really helped us protect our crop. The overall result is a really low yielding year. ‘Quality over quanitiy’ sums up vintage 2020, the quality of the fruit and wine is exceptional.
When 6Ft6 launched in 2003, its mission was to provide an incredible value pinot noir for its quality, allowing more people to enjoy good quality wine at an accessible price point and that philosophy still drives us today.

- Quality control Our 6Ft6 pinot noir is single vineyard, which in layman’s terms means we don’t purchase grapes from other properties, allowing greater quality control over our wine.
- The fruit 6Ft6 Pinot Noir consists of a variety of clones and having this vast variety makes the wine, well-balanced and easy to drink.
This is a classic pinot with bright cherry and red plum flavours, just a hint of earth, a nuance of vanilla and dark chocolate upon a silky-smooth palate. A fresh and fruit-driven wine that is typical of its variety, exhibiting that beautiful spicy cherry ﬂavour we have come to know and love from this grape.
