About This Wine

Whilst the nose is attractive the wine almost explodes with flavour on the palate. It is simply bursting with raspberry, cherry and plums as well as some smoky oak and again that autumnal note. There is a slinky-smooth velvety texture which elevates the wine to something really special. There is so much flavour that the structural elements are somewhat hidden however in the aftertaste they are certainly there with plenty of both acid and tannin present to indicate that the wine will improve with further aging, but you can enjoy the wine very much right now. Roast duck or quail with a supporting fruity sauce would be the best match.

Mornington Peninsula Wines

South of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region has a cool, maritime climate that is most known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production. Other varieties that have seen some success here include Pinot Gris and Tempranillo.

However, it does seem that Pinot Noir is their focus judging from the fact that The Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration is held once every two years. The event displays the region’s capabilities in making some of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir in front of local and international audiences.
