Port Phillip Estate Mornington Peninsula Balnarring Pin

Out of Stock

Cracka Review

The Balnarring property was acquired in 2007. Vines are all cane pruned and vertically shoot positioned. The 2012 Balnarring Pinot Noir represents 2.4Ha of vineyard.

Vibrant garnet in colour. Highly perfumed and complex with dark cherry, plum and violet aromas with underlying savoury notes. The palate exhibits a tight and focused core. Initial ripe strawberry and raspberry characters move into the deeper territory of black cherries, liquorice and a touch of tapenade, with a subtle meatiness adding complexity. Fine tannins balanced with a stony acidity lead to a long, powerful finish. Alcohol 13.5%

Expert Reviews

Mike Bennie (2012 Vintage) says
There's a boney vein of slate-like minerality throughout, but the gist is of a wine with true, ripe, pinot noir fruit flavour, carried in a light-to-medium-bodied frame and trimmed with soft, succulent tannins. It's wonderful drinking right now, shows the weight of vintage without overbearing. Just add duck.
