From the Langtons Outstanding category this small production wine from the Mornington Peninsula has escaped me over the years but there is no doubting its quality. I have since purchased some and will look forward to trying this after a year or two cellaring initially. Very promising.

Last bottle. Crying a little bit over here. Couldn't be more in love.

Unusual Pinot noir for Mornington Peninsula, I would say some whole bunches have been used. You can feel the green tannin given by the stems. Definitely will get better with some age. It reminded me of some Ponsot I tasted( which is definitely a good thing). Someone may not like this wine it is obvious

Very structured and elegant Pinot. Tries to resist the temptation to over deliver on fruit. It's there in the background of just ripe cherries. There is no herbaceousness. I am wondering what it could be if it was allowed to be an Australian Pinot.
