Giaconda vineyard was established by Rick Kinzbrunner, a mechanical engineer who became interested in wine in the early 1970's. Rick then spent the next ten years working in the industry, travelling and following his passion for wine. After a brief stint in New Zealand, he studied at Davis University in California and worked at some of the most respected wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys (namely Stag's Leap, Simi and Matanzas Creek). In Europe he worked for the Moueix group in Bordeaux, co-owner of the fabled Chateau Petrus.

After returning to Australia in 1980 to take up a position as assistant winemaker at Brown Brothers in Milawa, Rick purchased land in the nearby Beechworth wine region - at the foothills of the beautiful North-East Victorian Alps. Planting commenced in 1982 and the property is now devoted solely to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. A separate planting of Nebbiolo has also been established close to the Beechworth township at Red Hill. Total area under vines at the Giaconda Estate Vineyard is now 4 hectares. Annual wine production is approximately 2,500 dozen bottles.

Damp earth, rose petal, red to black cherry-spiced with cinnamon, star anise and a hint of clove. A powerful underbelly of savoury tannins carry the exotic red fruit compote on a lingering journey. Structured like an classic old-fashioned Burgundy with a structural integrity that will see this evolve into an stunning wine, given several more years in the cellar. Our advice - give it time as the wait will be well worth it.

Alcohol: 13.8%
Closure: Cork
Cellaring: 3-12 years

"Beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, hint chinotto fruits, fine chalky/al dente textures. Wonderful voluminous Pinot Noir with superb concentration and mineral torque. One of the finest of the 2021 Australian vintage."Andrew Caillard MW
The Vintage Journal
2021 Estate Pinot Noir
"Long and laye slowly unfolding earthy, meaty scents of small berries, citrus oil, sweet cherries and underbrush. Becoming smooth and velvety, its pristine palate effortlessly combines small berry, plum and cherry flavour with tight-grained polished oak and slatey tannins, finishing with drive, balance and a savoury aspect."Jeremy Oliver

2017 Estate Pinot Noir
"Artfully balanced and focused, this exceptional pinot reveals a deeply floral and earthy bouquet whose heady perfume of dark cherries, plums and charcuterie meat undertones reveals cranberry-like nuances. It’s long and elegant..."Jeremy Oliver
