This Pinot is distinctly Geelong in character - dark cherry, satsuma plums and red berry aromas, savoury woodland earthiness with crunchy red berries and fine, firm tannins. It has an elegant mouthfeel and lingering fresh finish.
Our estate Pinot is a true and beautiful expression of Geelong fruit; it pulls you in with its aroma of mushroom, and earth, enticing with some exotic dark cherry and wet leaves. You can expect flavours of dark cherry with undercurrents of earth and spice on the palate. Flavour, body, and finish are built to drink on release or age.
This wine has a beautiful power; its flavour profile is dominated by rich dark cherry but retains beautiful acidity. The Hat Rock Vinyard's black clay gives it a great, dark, umami, brooding character.
The limestone base at the Suma Park sight gives this Pinot an almost oyster shell aroma and a moreish quality to the wine. It has an elegant richness that is pulled back into place by a minerality and brininess from the limestone deposits.
The Hillside Haven Vineyard is all about perfume; we love that the granite gives you such a beautiful lightness of touch. Think floral with dark cherries and raspberries, a whisper of balsam and wood spice with poised tannins and fresh acidity to close.
These grapes are sourced from the North facing Merricks, Mornington Peninsula vineyard on red volcanic ferrous eroded basaltic soils. It is elegant on the nose, expressing restrained raspberry and red cherry. The palate continues with red cherry fruit, grilled peaches and hints of herb and spice.
