A juicy and vibrant example of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) from the same team that makes the Garagiste wines. A flavourful fruit-forward expression of raspberry and cherry with the crunchy tartness of cranberry, this Pinot should be served chilled and immediately.
Fruit forward and inviting but by no means simple. Made using the MV6 clone with 60% whole bunch carbonic fermented in stainless steel. The balancing 40% (114 clone) is destemmed and fermented in stainless steel prior to MLF (Malolactic fermentation) in stainless steel.
