Winner of Best Pinot Noir at the Australian Pinot Noir Challenge 2018

Handpicked Mornington Peninsula Collection Pinot Noir 2017 has been named the Best Pinot Noir in Australia at the Australian Pinot Noir Challenge 2018.  This is Australia's only show dedicated to Pinot Noir and it was awarded 97 points by judges, beating more than 250 pinot noirs, all from Australia.  There were many fancy, higher priced wines in the show, but it's always good when an independent winery wins such awards.


The winemaker behind the wine is Gary Baldwin, a colossus of the industry. Wineries such as Dalwhinnie, Stoniers, Devil’s Lair, Voyager,  Brookland Valley, Lenton Brae and Freycinet use Gary to improve their own wine.  But this Handpicked Pinot Noir has trumped them all and more.  It's from a collection of vineyards in Mornington, but with access to just 18H of vines, there's always going to be a tiny amount available.

This is a pinot noir for pinot devotees; it's full of soft red fruits, has a luscious mid palate with ever so elegant tannins.

What I also like is the price - $44.99.  Despite winning Best Pinot Noir in Australia at Australia's only Pinot Noir Show,  Handpicked Mornington Peninsula Collection Pinot Noir 2017 is keeping their wine affordable and that should be applauded.

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.
