Handpicked Collection Pinot Noir
Country: Australia, Mornington Peninsula
Tasting Notes: The Mornington Peninsula is famous for its Pinot Noir wines and this is a fine example from a great vintage: deep colour, spicy berry aromas, a silky-smooth palate and fine tannin to finish.
Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Mornington Peninsula harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too, catching some vignerons by surprise; many were picking in early February, about a month earlier than the long-term average. The 2016 wines have excellent colour, flavour and weight.
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Pairing: Serve with lamb – roasted rack in spring, butterflied on the barbecue in summer and slow cooked shanks in winter.
