About This Wine
Onannon Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir is grown on three vineyards: Onannon’s original Red Hill site (23-year-old vines, MV6, 777), a site in Shoreham (20-year-old vines, MV6) and another in Balnarring. 10% whole bunches, no new oak. Unfined. In 2019 the fruit really sits in the front seat. It's darker than the previous couple of releases, blue moving into black fruits with some cardamom/star anise spice notes from the bunches. On the palate the fruit really attacks, again led primarily by darker fruits that at the moment seem to swallow the bunch spices. The wine finishes with sour cherry echoes and fine tannins. – Will Byron, Onannon
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.
