Sandro Mosele is one of Victoria's most accomplished vignerons, his celebrated editions of Kooyong and Port Phillip estates are amongst the most cherished renderings of Burgundy styled Pinot Noir in the nation. Mosele has applied his art to a precious parcel of fruit, picked off a single, modest block of vine, grown to the fully fertile soils of a lamb and beef stud, on the brisk, maritime blown coastals of Gippsland South. This is not Pinot for profit, Walkerville represents an aesthetic appreciation of fruit from the farmer, invigorated by the blessings of providence and consecrations of local livestock. A cornucopia of comely characters, forcemeats and fennel, pectins and pith, Walkerville make Pinot Noir as it should be, bucolic, pastoral, articulate of the land whence it came. Partisans and purists of bespoke presentations in Pinot, are quietly advised to pool their pesetas and avail themselves of a case or two Walkerville Pinot Noir, a mere few hundred dozen are made of each..

The generous personality of the Fonterutoli wines has been perfected over the years through a discipline of research and innovation. The excellent exposure of the vineyards, an exceptional soil and microclimate, yield complex, elegant and imposing wines. All work from pruning, leaf plucking, bunch thinning and harvesting is carried out by hand. Fermentations take place in cone shaped steel vats at 26°C to 28°C for maximum extraction of colour and tannins. Upon completion, batches are transferred to small French and American oak barrels for malolactic and ten months maturation. Components are handled separately until the final assemblage just prior to bottling. Alcohol 13.3%
