Pinot Noir 2018 – Black Market Deal #38939
- Textured, savoury
- Mornington Peninsula
If you like your pinot, then this premium, single vineyard offering is as essential as it is moving.
Mornington, away from the hustle and bustle of beach-goers, is a quiet, introspective sort of a place. This wine reflects that. It’s a vineyard of red volcanic soils, nourished by natural rainfall. The winemaking is superb, no doubt, but pinot is all about place. Time and the elements have taken wilderness and sculpted a gem.
It’s darkly complex. Red and black cherries, and blackcurrants, interwoven with white pepper and spicy notes. It’s just a touch wild, but all the elements are remarkably clear. Patience will be rewarded with a cellaring potential of a decade.
Premium, yes, but not snobby. It’s just the Peninsula baring its soul.

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.
