Pinot noir is a notoriously difficult grape to work with, but the Mornington Peninsula is blessed with a cool climate perfectly suited to creating world-class pinot noir.
Montalto pinot noir is commonly described as elegant and refined, with supple mouthfeel and finesse. We blush.
It’s true; we make every effort to ensure our fruit is the star attraction of Montalto wine but we also explore the benefits of a variety of cutting-edge winemaking techniques.
Pinot noir appeals to all palates, whether you’re a fan of fragrant, elegant pinot like our Main Ridge Block, or a powerful, muscular pinot like the Tuerong Block.
Or, if you like to have your cake and eat it too, the Montalto Estate offers the best of both worlds: a complex wine, made from the best parcels of fruit from across our estate, perfect to drink now or cellar for the future (that’s if you can wait that long).
Failing that, our exceptional Pennon Hill pinot noir offers fantastic value for a wine of such high quality. We don’t know how our winemaker does it, but we’re pretty glad he does.
