2022 Xavier Goodridge Pa Pa Pinot Noir


Tasting Notes


Pairs well with


100% Pinot Noir from Yarra Valley in Victoria. 13% ABV.

Lively red fruit on the nose; bright n ripe cherry, raspberry and cranberries follow through on the palate, gentle tannins; there’s a slight spice and earthiness that keep you going back for more.

Xavier Goodridge crafts idiosyncratic expressions of Pinot Noir born in Yarra Valley and on his organically farmed vineyard in Gippsland’s Maffra in Victoria. In collaboration with exceptional growers from the Yarra, Mount Gambier and Henty, he sources the highest quality grapes for his Pa Pa range. With the light touch in the winery, Xavier lets the wines speak of the land.

Xavier’s winemaking style supports his philosophy of letting the vineyard's work shine through in the finished wine. For him, winemaking is the ‘easy part’, as he believes that the foundation for great wines is laid in the vineyard itself. His light touch approach means the wines ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeast to express their natural characteristics without manipulation. Wines are raised in large-format oak, allowing them to mature gently and gracefully.

Xavier’s wines captivate the senses with their purity and lively energy.
