Mid Ruby red in colour. Somewhat closed on the nose - red fruits - cherries in particular. After a decant and an hour with regular swirling still a muted nose. On the palate savoury red cherry with medium minus acidity. At 5 years it would appear to have a huge future - this is my first of 4 bottles. Solid and latent on the palate - yet to open up but the quality is there. Main Ridge was the first licensed winery on the Mornington Peninsula in 1975. This producer not always easy to source.

Not good enough for the money and the reputation
The winery got sold not too long ago if I am not wrong
Hopefully they will adjust the way they are working cause so far since the handover it is disappointing

That is excellent down under Pinot. Nice bite. Well made. Aggressive tension but not elixir.
