This premium Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir demonstrates precise, intricate winemaking. As the name suggests, the vineyard planted at 9,500 vines/hectare (average in Australia is 2,500) which creates a concentration of flavour in the berries not often experienced. Only produced in very good vintages, this is ready to drink now or can be cellared for many years to come.

Elegant with power. Silky tannins & excellent length. A special wine with cellaring potential of 15-20+ years.
A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced wines.
Hand picked. Wild yeast fermentation. 10% whole bunch. Use of concrete fermenters. The wine spent 12 months in French Oak of which 20% was new.
