''It sizzles with savouriness. Wood spice and tangy cherry, smoky oak and orange rind characters lend this both an exotic feel and a lively disposition.'

  • Want the flagship wine from a well-known and highly respected Mornington Peninsula winery but don't want to pay the $60 a bottle cellar door price? Then look no further than this Mystery wine deal.

    It is the kind of wine that brought about this whole mystery hoopla in the first place. Branded, iconic and highly awarded, you can pick it up today for exactly half the price everyone else pays. Expect the Rolls-Royce treatment, with the heavyset and expensive looking bottle keeping hold of some seriously complex Mornington juice. It is savoury, smoky, funky and wild. 11 months oak ageing, sourced from a single-vineyard, and made using mostly destemmed fruit. Pinot offers don't come any better than this one.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes were destemmed and transferred to open fermenters without crushing and allowed to commence fermentation naturally with indigenous yeasts. It received a light hand-plunging during its 9-day maceration and was pressed to tank. It was racked off heavy lees after 48 hours settling to a selection on one & two year old French barriques for maturation over 11 months. Following racking to tank it was left to settle for a further 3 months before having a single light filtration prior to bottling.

    A specific area of vines on the blockk was selected for this wine. Historically they have found this area has produced some amazing flavour profiles, all MV6 clone. 

    TASTING NOTES

    Very intense and precise pinot here with violet-like florals, sappy fresh forest aromas, raspberry, a savoury graphite-like mineral edge and a pure red cherry fruit flavour. The balance is perfect and the wine delivers plenty of value for this reserve single vineyard barrel selected wine.

  • REVIEWS

    'It sizzles with savouriness. Wood spice and tangy cherry, smoky oak and orange rind characters lend this both an exotic feel and a lively disposition. Bass notes come via charcuterie and stewy plums. Tannin, it has plenty. It shows all the signs that it will develop very well.'
