Here’s another product of these odd times. This is a delicious, small production Mornington pinot that was meant to sit proudly on restaurant lists. With local restaurants unable to provide service, the wine needed a home. It’s everything you’d expect from classic Morno, with bright fruit in the form of strawberries and sour cherries, coupled with a bit of earthiness and funk. I’m guessing this will be a one-off for us at the ‘Fo, so get in while you can!
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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...
