Young Gun Of Wine: “Deep Dive: Mornington Peninsula’s Best Pinot Noir”

⁠Last week @younggunoftheyear gathered an expert panel and set them the task of finding Mornington Peninsulas’ best Pinot Noir.

Our 2021 Polperro Estate Pinot Noir was ⁠⁠Dan Buckles’s wine of the day and also topped Simon Black’s list. ⁠

“The nose is a flurry of pinot fruits, raspberry, ripe cherry, dark plum and delicate violets,” wrote @mrdanbuckle. “Delightful fruit characters, purity and finesse here. Suggests very meticulous viticulture and detailed winemaking. Complexity will come with time, oak whispers in the background. Balance and integration make the whole experience seamless, nothing out of place. Lingering tannins like rolling a cherry pip in your mouth.” ⁠

@s1m0n_black⁠ saw “a wine of fragrance and purity. Blood orange, strawberry, rosewater/rose petal, cherry and violets and some fuji apple skin meshed with some attractive tiramisu oak qualities. On the palate, fresh fruits of the forest, wild berries, plum skin and some fresh OJ also in the mix. Medium-plus weight with a cool acid line on some attractive pumice-stone tannins. While it’s more in the mediumweight zone, it’s certainly not lacking presence.”⁠
