THE PINNACLE OF PINOT NOIR

95 points (gold) - James Halliday, Wine Companion 

Named after our niece, the third generation of the Austins family wine tree, the Ruby May Pinot Noir represents the pinnacle of fine wine within our collection.

Hand selected fruit from the finest vineyard blocks and the final blend using only the best of the best barrels. Drink now or cellar to enjoy in the years to come. 

Using 33% whole bunch has given this wine a greater intensity than the Delilah Pinot Noir, making it ideal to pair with roast lamb, duck or your favourite stew.

 

Limited stock remains. 

James Halliday tasting notes:

Pinot Noir | 2014

Custom Collection Ruby May Geelong Pinot Noir

James Halliday - Published 01 August 2017

Hand-picked, chilled overnight, mostly destemmed, not crushed, 33% whole bunches, 4 days cold soak, open-fermented, plunged three times daily, matured in French oak (33% new) for 12 months. Unexpectedly, the whole bunch component provided the fleshy red fruits needed to provide balance and mid-palate vinosity. Complexity is a given, as is the length of the palate.

    How can I track my online order?

    You should have received a tracking link via email when your ordered was dispatched. If you didn’t receive this, please contact us and we can track your order for you.

    How much is shipping?

    Spend $99 or more and you’ll receive shipping on us! For all other shipping within VIC, NSW and QLD, flat rate shipping is $10. For all deliveries to WA and NT, flat rate shipping is $20. Unfortunately, we can’t ship overseas (sorry o/s friends!).

      How do I choose the right wine?

      All our wines are semi-dry to dry styles. Each of our wine product pages have tasting notes for your reading pleasure. If you’re still unsure, reach out via social media for a personalised recommendation.

        My wine was damaged when it got here, what do I do?

        Bummer! On the rare occasion, our wine can be damaged in transit, like most other online products. If this is the case, send us a photo of your wine and your delivery address and we’ll get your wine resent.

          I’m getting married/hosting a large event – can I get your wines at a discount for purchasing in bulk?

          You sure can! Contact us to receive a price ist.

            I want wine right now, where can I get it from?

            Our wine is available in over 2,000 retail outlets throughout Australia including Dan Murphy’s, BWS, Vintage Cellars, Liquorland, IGA Liquor, Cellarbrations and all good independents. Like always, please contact your local store directly to be 100% sure.

              What’s your privacy policy?

              We will never share your information with any third party. Who is a third party you ask… well, the first is you, and the second is us. So, we’ll keep everything between us. Read the full Privacy Policy here

                Where should I store my wine?

                In a cool place is great! A constant temperate of 14 degrees is the optimal conditions. The most important thing is to have no sudden fluctuation in temperature. So, under the bed, bottom of a cupboard, in a cellar, etc. Not in an attic.

                  Where is 6Ft6 wine made?

                  90% of our wines are proudly single vineyard (we source Prosecco and some Pinot Gris from the King Valley), meaning our wine is grown, produced and bottle onsite based out of our home in the Moorabool Valley. Read more about our vineyard here.

                    Who makes 6Ft6 wine?

                    Our Chief Winemaker, John Durham heads up our winery team, along with emerging young gun, Duncan Lowe. Learn more who makes up the team at 6Ft6 here.

                      How long will the wine last?

                      Tricky question as this is very wine dependent, although, luckily for us both, we make our wines ready to consume. For our red wines (Pinot Noir and Shiraz), you may gain some benefit from cellaring for up to 10 years in storage.

                        I own a business; do you wholesale your wine?

                        Yes, we love supporting businesses of all shapes and sizes. Please contact us for a wholesale price list. 

                          How do I make cocktails using your wine?

                          We’re glad you asked, as we’ve been busily testing recipes for you to try at home. Get the Little Black Book of Cocktails here

                            Are your wines vegan-friendly? 

                            Absolutely! We only use plant-based proteins (pea and potato) to clarify our wines. 

                              What if I don’t like the wine?

                              Unfortunately, we can’t refund based on taste (i.e. you typically like sweet Moscato though you bought a dry Chardonnay), however if you feel your wine isn’t up to its usual standards and not worth the investment, please let me know and we will happily provide you with a refund. Refer to our Good Times Guarantee for more information.

                              6Ft6 | Good Time Guarantee

                              We are very confident in the quality of our wines that we have this Good Times Guarantee. If for any reason you feel the quality of the wines is not up to standard, we ask that you do these following steps to enable a refund:

                              1. Notify us within 30 days of your delivery that you will like a refund. Any feedback during this time would be appreciated.
                              2. We'll send you a return shipping label and you can book in a pick up address and time that suits you.
                              3. Upon inspection of the goods returned, if they are in the same condition as to how they were sent*, we will issue a refund to you.

                              *’Same condition to how they were sent’ simply means – no damaged labels, wine must have been stored in appropriate temperature conditions (not in a freezer or in direct sunlight or in damp conditions). The shipment is to be sent back in the original box and include the empty bottle of wine you have consumed to ensure the package is shipped safely.

                              If you are purchasing a vintage for the second time after using your good times guarantee previously on the same vintage, this guarantee will no longer be applicable.

                              Our Good Times Guarantee is applicable to the quality. If you are unsure if you will like the wine, find your wine style here or please email or message us and we will be more than happy to help! Unfortunately, the Good Times Guarantee does not apply to change of mind or dislike due to personal taste. 

                              If for some reason the wine was delivered to you damaged, simply take a photo of the stock and we will send a replacement.
