As a key figure in the establishment of Mornington viticulture, Garry Crittenden was instrumental in forging for the Peninsula the reputation as a distinguished producer of distinctive, regional wines. From the outset, Crittenden recognized the area's climatic suitability to Pinot Noir, exploiting it through meticulous land management and sophisticated vinification techniques. Fashioned from a mix of Pinot Noir clones, including MV6, 114 and 115, all grapes are hand picked off an auspicious north facing slope at Tuerong.

TASTING NOTES
Bright scarlet hue. Walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and supply elegant, yet complex and soundly structured. Each clone contributes unique characters. There is a faint but appealing stalky character which has nothing to do with stems in the ferment, speaking more about the smaller size of hand picked berries. The texture is rich and structured, soft tannins and bright cherry fruit resolve on a good acid finish.
