TASTING NOTES

The Mornington Peninsula is famous for its Pinot Noir wines and this is a fine example from a great vintage: deep colour, spicy berry aromas, a silky-smooth palate and fine tannin to finish.

 

SEASON

Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Mornington Peninsula harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too, catching some vignerons by surprise; many were picking in early February, about a month earlier than the long-term average.
