McWilliam’s Bagtown Keith the Showman Pinot Noir

When J.J. McWilliam first planted vineyards in the region in 1913, Griffith (then named Bagtown) was far from civilisation, an area of great hardship, yet limitless opportunity.

Keith McWilliam “The Showman” invigorated McWilliam’s with daring bravery; turning a conservative agricultural company into a dynamic brand with style. This Pinot Noir is filled with aromas of bright cherry and smoky spice, followed by layers of strawberry and cranberry flavours.
