The Pyrenees region of Victoria is renowned for producing elegant cool climate red wines of great finesse and it is Pyren Vineyard’s endeavour to mirror this reputation from its 27 ha vineyard situated in Warrenmang. Established in 1999 with varieties that highlight the strengths of the Pyrenees, the property is developing a notable profile – Floral and earthen aromas, refined structure and the recurring appeal of ripe red fruits and lively acids.
The construction of an on-site winery in time for the 2010 harvest has allowed continued ideas to manifest in the search for utmost vineyard expression, whilst the challenge at Pyren is in the commitment to push limitations. The concept of perpetual room for improvement gives owner/winemaker Leighton Joy the drive to push for exciting and improved wines.
