Pinot Noir, Distant Noises, Mornington Peninsula, Australia 2019
Regular price £16.75
We are extremely excited by the arrival of the wines which form part of the Distant Noises range, brought to life by winemaker Tom Carson. We know Tom very well through his work at Yabby Lake, where he was won a whole host of accolades for his wines. For this project, Tom set himself a very specific set of goals centring on the key objective of producing top quality Mornington Wines at prices rarely seen in this region.
In his eyes, he has achieved many of his goals at the premium end of Mornington, therefore the opportunity to create a more accessible range of wines that show off this fascinating part of Australia was not to be missed. And we certainly think that they hit the spot – precise, clean and sustainable winemaking highlighting the cool climate potential that Mornington has to offer.
Pinot Noir 2019
The grapes are all handpicked, hand sorted and then carefully destemmed in an extremely labour intensive process. Fermentation takes place in traditional open top fermenters, with the skins for 10 days before a maturation process of 10 months in oak barrels. Perfumed aromas leap out of the glass, most notably cherry and red berry fruits, complemented by a touch of spice and underlying French oak. The long, silky palate possesses real elegance, a plush, velvety texture and a finely poised finish.
