Eagles Rise Pinot Noir 2017
- Elegant, lighter
It isn’t easy sourcing pinot from Geelong. There just isn’t that much of it to go around. A shame really, as the style is absolutely lovely. So when one comes around that’s this enjoyable at this price, you gotta jump on it. The wine presents with black cherry, some spice and a little bit of earthy funk. It’s fragrant and has settled nicely into its prime after a few years in bottle. And if the sun is high in the sky but you still fancy a red, you can’t go wrong putting a little chill on it. That’s versatility right there!
“Beautifully complex and fragrant, the wine shows dried cherry, leather, toasted nut and warm mushroom aromas on the nose, followed by a delightfully rounded palate displaying elegant weight and smooth texture. Well framed by fine polished tannins, finishing lingering and savoury.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Geelong is a little sung about region, which is a sad state of affairs. The variation in style but consistency of wine strength seen here is the region's strong suit, and whether it's a fragrant Pinot Noir from the Bellarine Peninsular, an aromatic white from the Surf Coast or a delicate Chardonnay from the Moorabool Valley, you'll want to go on holiday just to find out where it came from. With sixty vineyards to choose from, mostly with picturesque sea views and a VERY laidback lifestyle, you're spoilt for choice. Once vine age comes on a bit more, I've not doubt that more vignerons will put two and two together and realise that it's just across the water from the Mornington Peninsula. Early adopters will be pleased.
