Main Ridge Estate Mornington Peninsula Half Acre Pinot Noir

From a famed little vineyard on the Mornington, this is a delightfully characterful pinot of fragrance, purity, delicacy and structure. In 2013 its purity of fruit is mesmerising, but it’s the line and persistence that elevate it to one of the great vintages from this special place. Magnificent aromas of rose petal unite with exact red cherry characters, supported by intricately integrated vanillin oak (50% new and 50% one and two year old barrels). Tannins are finely textured yet present the confidence of structure to propel long-term potential. $75 direct.
