Pinot Noir Mornington Victoria
Picked off a parcel which yields a superior harvest every year, a closely husbanded copse of vine that's been trained to produce a minimal crop of stellar quality Pinot Noir. Treated to a traditional course of indigenous open ferments, filled to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for malolactic and eleven months élevage. Plenty of Pinosity for the enthusiast, character and complexity, spiced forest berries over a handsome layer of fine grained savoury tannins oak. Terrific balance and resolve, a lasting, impressive cherry stone finish.
Deep scarlet hues. Red cherry bouquets, apples delicious and sasafras nose, cocoa and caraway, French oak woven throughout. The palate is supple, seamless and lithe, its framework of velvet tannins in support of crunchy red fruit and fleshy cherry flavours. Terrific balance and resolve, a deeply satisfying bucolic style of Pinot Noir to match with delicate meats.
