If you know Mornington, you know Montalto. Not only is it one of the best spots to visit and enjoy a woodfired pizza on the back patio before a walk through the sculpture garden, but they make exceptional wines as well. This pinot, from the incredible 2017 vintage, would be amongst their best. It’s got a pool room full of trophies and gold medals to go along with an array of outstanding critical review. I could write about it’s characteristics, but I’ll leave that in the hands of James Halliday -
‘A highly aromatic wine displaying immense complexity. Blackberry and kirsch notes combine with graphite, cherry, and earthy undertones. There’s a whole-bunch floral and fragrant perfume hovering together with some subtle dried herbs, black olive and root vegetables. The palate is structured but shows restraint and elegance as the saturating fruits dissolve into the savoury finish.’
“This offers a rich array of ripe red and dark-cherry aromas with violets, baking spices and earthy nuances. The palate has great definition and detail, in tannin terms, with plenty of dark-cherry flavor. Drink or hold. Screw cap.”

The Mornington Peninsula is one of those places you dream of retiring - once you've made a cool $10m to get you into the Red Hill club. The sublime mix of temperate climate, expansive views, lush hills and pristine beaches is something not many would turn their nose up at. You can rest assured that every winery here has all the money they need, and although the wines may be relatively expensive, they're made as close to idealistic aspirations as possible. It's hard to find a bad wine. The usual cool climate suspects are the mainstay here (Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling) and they range from ethereal to weighty. Whichever end of the spectrum, they're all class.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
