Pinot Noir 2019 – Black Market Deal #39987
- Textured, savoury
- Mornington Peninsula
This is one of the most exciting Mornington pinots we’ve had at the ‘fo. Last vintage of this had the whole Dealer Team humming with enthusiasm. The fruit and winemaking is just THAT good.
It really is a stunning wine: quite Burgundian in style - a touch lighter, not quite as plush as many New World examples, and with bags of vibrant acidity that guarantees good ageing. But the flavour there is unmistakably Mornington. We’re talking redcurrants and cranberry, with a spicy edge and a trademark salinity that speaks of a region with the sea on three sides. The delicate fruit sweetness hints of grenadine cordial, but any fruit juice notions are reigned in immediately by impressively powdery tannin and a speckling of spice. This wine is built to age and will do so extraordinarily well. Serious pinot for lovers of wine as an art form as much as simply good drinking.
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.
“A blend of three vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula, the beautiful pinot offers bright red fruits, spicy oak and soft tannins. A must-buy for lovers of Victorian pinot noir.”

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.
