This area of the Nepean Block was specifically targeted for a reserve quality wine. The vines were cane pruned to produce no more than 18 shoots per vine. An open VSP canopy was carefully managed all through the growing season with some leaf-plucking on the southern side once the nets were put on after Christmas. No more irrigating was done after Christmas to encourage uptake from the deep rooted vines of nutrients required for these special flavour profiles. Bunch thinning, to one bunch per shoot was practiced to concentrate all available plant resources into the single bunch.

Expert Reviews

The best estate-grown pinot noir, with only 275 dozen made; destemmed to open fermenters, hand-plunged; matured for nine months in a mix of new and used barriques from Burgundian coopers. Light, bright crimson; both the fragrant bouquet and palate are complex, albeit with only light-bodied red cherry/strawberry spice fruits; has very good line and length. Rating 94 - Drink by 2019 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes


Very intense and precise pinot here with violet-like florals, sappy fresh forest aromas, muck, raspberry and spice - very taut and youthful, the oak is tucked in deep.


The palate has superb richness and intensity, really ripples with red fruit flavour and f nely layered tannins - the structure is impeccable, really reminiscent of the Burgundian repertoire of power with elegance. Kong cherry fruit fl avour and a lively cherry pip finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on The Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia's best cool climate wines because of the late ripening, the fertile soil and careful vineyard management.

Since those early days we have secured lease on 2 other vineyards here on The Peninsula. One on the Port Phillip side, close to the water and the other at Balnarring near the Westernport Bay. This has increased our vineyards to 60 acres. With these extra parcels of fruit it gives the winemakers an opportunity to blend from the different sites, mixing different terroirs.

Matt, the vineyard manager has gained recognition for his attention to detail and care of his vines. This has lead to other vineyards requesting his advice and operational skills. He is now caring for another six vineyards on The Peninsula.
