Pinot Noir 2018 – Black Market Deal #35662
- Textured, savoury
- Mornington Peninsula
Get this, mofos. This wine has been matured in handmade Florentine terracotta amphorae. In an effort to innovate, these guys have looked to the past, ditched the oak, and made a wine like it’s 600 BC. Doing so preserves all the gorgeous fruit intensity of pinot, saving it from being smothered by overly vanilla-ey oak abuse. It matures in much the same way though, being airtight, it’s not an oxidative process. The result is a cherry-rich, sweetly spiced pinot that’s exploding with character and nuances that you may well have missed out on otherwise. This’ll cellar wonderfully, but it’s drinking damn well now too. Plus, it’s the world’s best talking point when your guests arrive.

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...
