It has aromas of earth, sour cherry, plums and some gentle cinnamon spice. All of these are backed by a lovely soft yet firm palate with nice clean acidity to join the tannins supporting the structure of this easy drinking red. It’s ready for consumption right now on it’s own and will do even better if matched up with something savoury such as tuna carpaccio or slow roasted duck. Serve it in big Pinot Glasses to get the most from this soft young wine. You will not find a better $13 Mornington Pinot Noir, guaranteed.
Where this wine comes from - Mornington Peninsula
Another gem that’s part of Melbourne’s ‘Dress Circle’, the maritime climate of Mornington makes it Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Paradise. Sea breezes ensure the vineyards remain cool, ideal for producing styles with elegance and finesse. Red Hill, Merricks and Balnarring is where the main action is, enjoying the see breezes coming off Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. There’s also a vast array of alternative varieties that enjoy the peninsula’s maritime climate. Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris certainly has made its presence felt, producing both clean crisp, easy drinking Grigio styles, as well as richer, riper Gris styles. The whites are made for seafood, while Mornington Pinot Noir is a must with traditional duck dishes – either Chinese style or French.
