About This Wine
This Pinot Noir punches well above its weight. Intense varietal characters of berry and forest floor. Round palate balanced with fine, almost creamy tannin finish.
Pinot Noir is picked at 13.8 Baume. Two clones of Pinot Noir are grown on our Mornington Peninsula vineyard, MV6 60% and 115 40%. Care in the vineyard is matched in the winery, with grapes being fermented slowly with extended grape skin contact. The winery works day and night, hand plunging the cap of skins back into the fermenting juice. The colour deepens, the perfume rises, and the juice becomes wine, made fine and strong with tannins slowly extracted from the skins. The wine is matured in selected French barriques for 15 months, 15% of the oak being new. The wine is hand bottled with minimal filtration, ready to be enjoyed.
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.
