Sticks Pinot Noir 2021
Established in 2001, Sticks has been the Yarra Valley's quiet achiever for over 20 years now. That said, our years of quiet determination haven't gone unnoticed; these days, we stand as one of the Yarra Valley's most well-known wineries, crafting the wines the Yarra does best. After setting up stumps in the Yarra Valley in 2003, Anthony Fikkers has worked for a swag of Yarra Valley wineries including Giant Steps, De Bortoli, Mac Forbes and Medhurst, and somehow found time for stints in France, Italy and Germany along the way. He’s a man with plenty of cred, the highest of skills, the sharpest of wits and the purest of palates.
Sticks Yarra Valley is beautifully situated on a single site in the picturesque Yarra Valley, an hour’s drive from Melbourne. The Winery and Cellar Door, which are nestled in to the base of the Christmas Hills, have unparalleled views of the Estate vineyard and Great Dividing ranges.
Red fruits, cherry, rhubarb and a dash of smoked paprika. Simple flavours of raspberry and a little peaty undergrowth, clean acidity, fine powdery tannin, and a modest finish. It’s an unassuming kind of wine, and easy enough to enjoy. - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, on the 2020 vintage
