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.
There were no major heatwaves in the 2018 season; nevertheless, it was a warm season overall and the harvest was a little early. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. An extended dry, mild patch over January and February was excellent for Pinot Noir, helping create excellent depth of flavour balanced with lively acidity..
This wine is from select vineyards in Red Hill, Main Ridge, Tuerong and our own Capella Vineyard in Bittern, making it a true representation of the region and the season. The fruit was harvested by hand at the end of February, chilled overnight, then destemmed and vinified in open fermenters with hand plunging. About 10% was fermented in whole bunches to increase red fruit aromas and tannin complexity. The wine was matured for 11 months in a mix of new and seasoned oak barriques from a selection of Burgundian coopers.
