Winery : Various
Pinots from Mornington, Yarra Valley and Geelong in our newly renovated Victorian Sample 6 pack.
2018 Mayer Close Planted Yarra V Pinot Noir: From a close-planted section of the vineyard, roughly 25% whole bunch. Diam cork and wax finish. Openly textured, perfumed, fine tannins, lingers. Mike Bennie 95 points.
2016 Principia Altior Pinot Noir: Darrin Gaffy was awarded 'Dark Horse Winery' in Halliday's 2019 Companion in acknowledgement of the quality that Principia has quietly achieved across the range of Pinots from Mornington sites. 'Altior' was awarded 5 stars, 95 points by Huon Hooke. Beguiling perfume, quince and vanilla with minerally elements. Smooth texture.
2016 By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir: Vineyard notes: 'Each vintage of Farrside pinot noir exhibits more masculinity, structure and savoury components, while deep meaty, spicy and mineral flavours also continue to evolve. A balanced array of red and black fruits, Farrside pinot noir is fresh and edgy with bucket-loads of character. This is a firm yet delicate wine with a long-textured finish.'
2016 Dexter Mornington Pinot Noir: Tod Dexter made his name creating some of the famous wines for Stonier Estate. This is delicious release combining a juicy/cherry fruit profile with ultra fine tannins and gently persistent flavours.
2016 Foxeys Hangout Pinot Noir: With their 'up-the-hill' cooler sites, this vintage was outstanding for Foxey's Hangout. 'The vines love a warmer year, and 2016 was it.' The Estate blend comprises fruit from the original Merricks Nth vineyard plus White Gates, Kentucky Rd and Kangerong. It is a mix of MV6 and newer clones. Medium to full bodied pinot with concentration.
