- VIC - Mornington Peninsula
Hand-picked MV6 clone from a very low-yielding vineyard (1.2 tonnes per acre), cold-soaked for 5 days, wild-fermented at 28?C for 7 days, then 12 months in French oak. Bright, clear red-purple; a delicious red-fruited pinot with ocean breezes in its fresh and fragrant sails, the finish juicy, spicy and very long.

Winery Tasting Notes
A complex, fragrant and perfumed nose of violets, cherries, strawberries and red fruits with spice and cedar oak.
A feminine and elegant yet powerful wine displaying cherry and strawberry fruits, violets and spice with a cedar oak finish. A firm acid backbone gives the wine its overall structure and balance.
Enjoy over the next 4-6 years
