A new boutique producer with their sole wines a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir. According to their website, they are “located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula.” The vineyard was planted in the late 1980s with the first harvest in 1990. No mention on the website of the winemaker or the winemaking.
Family Vignettes Vineyard, Tailor’s Son, Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula, 2020
Medium garnet ruby. Proper Pinot Noir flex with dark cherry and strawberries, high toned bitter orange citrus, smoky char, brittle fallen leaf, black pepper and savoury kitchen herbs. Carries its dark red fruit with a savoury leathery, balsamic tone and a chary finish. Finely structured with easy poise. Missing a little x-factor for higher points.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
