Overview

Plenty of fine pinot character and complexity with spicy forest berry, red cherry, cocoa powder and a handsome layer of fine-grained savoury French oak woven throughout. The palate is supple, lithe and even with layered tannins holding crunchy red cherry flavour in elegant, gently curved shape. Terrific balance and resolve – cherry stone finish.

Expert Reviews

Bright, light crimson- purple; the fragrant red fruits of the bouquet lead into a palate with good drive and length; the cherry and plum fruit has an intriguing, and appealing, shaft of fruit that immediately registers on the tip of the tongue; the supple palate carries the red fruits through to the finish, where gently savoury tannins are present, but not assertive. Rating 93 - Drink by 2019, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

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.
