10X wines are designed as easy drinking examples of what the Mornington Peninsula can produce. They may have been picked from younger vines or at slightly different times to achieve slightly different characteristics and, as a general rule, they see less new oak and spend less time in oak during maturation.
The end result is more approachable, more accessible and more immediately rewarding; the wines have a delicious freshness and clarity.
This is a Pinot that punches above its weight. Surprisingly restrained and elegant for what was a warm ripening season. There are layers upon layers of complexity here. Lifted aromatics of tart cherry, fresh tobacco leaves and candied ginger, the palate is supported by a fine acidity, gentle tannins & alluring savoury characteristics of dried red earth, leather and pencil shavings. Quintessential, on point, game Pinot Noir.
