Talland Hill Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021


Mornington Peninsula


Spicy with crushed white and black pepper, red fruits, and white mushroom. The palate is so vibrant and fresh with structured firm tannins. The acidity sitting underneath all this is very powerful and the persistent driving force of this wine.



Certified Organic and Biodynamic – the fruit is handpicked and destemmed into a 2 ton open fermenter as whole berries and left to start fermenting naturally. It is not touched until a 2-3 drop in baumé , which allows fermentation to occur inside the grape berries , increasing the aromatics of the wine. Once fermentation starts strongly,  the ferment is hand-plunged 2-3 times per day for 10 days or until sugar is dry . The wine is left on skins for post ferment maturation for another 10 days. It is then pressed off skins and racked to barrel.
30 % new oak and predominately Sirugue Troncais extra tight grain Medium toast and D’aquitaine Allier and Jupier tight grain medium toast oak barrels. In spring the wine is racked and returned to barrel. After a total of 16 months barrel maturation the wine is bottled without fining or filtration and minimal sulfur.

“Medium-full ruby/brick-red colour; a bouquet of dried herbs and dried flowers, twigs and earthy underbrush. The tannins are ample, superfine and soft, while the palate has good persistence and savouriness. Not a ‘pretty’ pinot but an excellent red wine, with charm and pinosity”. 96/100, Huon Hooke – The Real Review
