A classic example Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir. There’s the quintessential red fruits of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry, though here they are just teetering towards a darker blue profile. This generous fruit is balanced by savory characters of ink, parsnip and turnip, thanks to the whole bunch inclusion. The finish reveals a distinct regional characteristic with a hint of Campari, reminiscent of subtly charred orange peel. This wine doesn’t try to revolutionize Pinot Noir; instead, it confidently embodies the traditional essence of the variety.

Simon Black, Chief Winemaker



Hand harvested grapes were sorted before destemming. Cold soaked for between 3
and 7 days prior to the onset of wild fermentation. 30% of the blend underwent 2
weeks carbonic maceration before being destemmed, with fermentation finishing on
the skins and a post ferment maceration of 7 days. After pressing, the wine was lightly
racked to French oak barriques (30% new) for natural malolactic fermentation and 11
months barrel maturation.
