Payten & Jones Valley Vignerons Pinot Noir
Made by Troy Jones and Behn Payten, two guys who grew up in Healesville and have spent their lives working in the industry there. The “Valley Vignerons” series of wines are sourced from growers but the vineyards are managed by Ben’s Dad.
This wine is great because it was made without any additions, no sulphur. Carbonic for some spice. 10 years to get their heads around making Pinot … they’ve nearly got it – this year was their best.
