Region: Mornington Peninsula Grapes: Pinot Noir First Glance: Fine Boned, Aromatic, Red Fruits, Svelte
The Wine: Hand-picked and fully destemmed into one large fermenter. The wine was fermented for 10 days on skins with only a short daily pump over, to minimise the extraction. Once finished the pressed wine was racked to seasoned oak for 10 months, with a lick of SO2. Filtered with a final small sulphur addition before bottling.
Bright red colour with classic Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, and cherry as well as rose petals and cardamom. The palate is finely structured showing more red fruit characters and subtle oak with spicy notes of black pepper with vanilla and fennel seed. The 2021 Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir has great texture, weight and balance.
