Pinot Noir is best known for the light- to medium-bodied reds of regions such as Burgundy and Central Otago (and, in Australia, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills). It also forms part of the classic Champagne blend and is a key contributor to many of the best sparklings. Pinot makes excellent rosés too, with the variety’s delicate charms perfectly suiting this lighter style.
Fragrant ripe dark berries and raspberry notes with hints of spice and savoury elements, continue onto the palate. Soft tannins and well-integrated oak create a generous mouthfeel and balance to the wine, finishing with great length.

"Stylish, complex and engaging, the bouquet shows ripe berry, spiced plum, game and earthy mushroom characters with a touch of dried herb note. It is beautifully weighted and attractively fruited on the palate, delivering fine texture and seductive savoury undertones, elegantly framed by polished tannins. At its best: now to 2020." Sam Kim

A wonderful Mornington Pinot sitting firmly in the savoury end of the spectrum. Complex aromas of leaf litter and earth, mushroom and cured meats, all wrapped around a core of blood plum. The generous palate has dark fruits, and black tea characters with leather and spice, culminating in a long, layered and savoury finish. Outstanding.
