ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Silent Way Pinot Noir
Silent Way Pinot Noir shows bright red berry fruit, black truffles, anise myrtle, and a light couching of spice. The palate is soft and consummately drinkable but with a persistent and structuring acid line. Balance is near perfect: savory but juicy, bright but soft. Just a fully open and realized wine.
About Silent Way
Silent Way is a plot of land 550 meters above sea level in Victoria’s icy-cool Macedon Ranges region, purchased in 2007 by Matt Harrop and Tamara Grischy with their three children, Jai, Ivy, and Sofia.
Matt and Tamara have established themselves as wine royalty in Australia. Tamara, a native of Port Douglas in Queensland, is the Head of Auctions at Langton’s, Australia’s most prestigious fine wine marketplace. Tamara has contributed to Langton’s Classification – the premier celebration of the great wine estates of Australia – for the last 20 years.
Matt, a New Zealand native, studied winemaking at Roseworthy College, Australia’s first and most notable
viticultural school. He cut his teeth at Grosset and Brokenwood, two of Australia’s most renowned wineries, before finding his affinity for the Macedon Ranges as the founding winemaker at Shadowfax, where he worked for nearly 20 years. In 2017, Matt became the winemaker at Curly Flat, considered one of Australia’s great cool-climate chardonnay and pinot noir producers.
In all their free time (sarcasm!), this husband and wife team has nurtured their own vines to produce the wines of Silent Way. Silent Way is named after one of the couple’s favorite albums, recorded by Miles Davis in 1969, and generally regarded as one of the most inventive albums of all time. A Miles Davis quote adorns their website: “Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.” Matt and Tamara feel similarly about winemaking: “You got to get to know a vineyard for a long time to express the best of it.”
