The owners are Ian, Matt and Alex Pattison, Pierre Van Der Heyde and Ben Hobson, who bring different skills and experience to the business, plus the all-important hand of Dylan McMahon, co-worker with Matt Pattison. There is as yet another unseen: the Syme on Yarra Vineyard, an extraordinary east-facing vineyard that is 30+ years old, and from which Coldstream Hills has purchased pinot noir for many years. The Pimba partners believe this is one of the great syrah sites in the Yarra Valley, under the care of one of Australia's best viticulturists, Stuart Proud. Pimba is a one-variety, one-purpose business, to prove that the syrah can show as much poise, purity and character as any other expression of syrah/shiraz across the globe. Time will tell how far Pimba wines can go.
