2016 Pinot Noir 'Mosselini Vineyard', Taturry

From a 4.5 ha vineyard in the Merricks district of the Mornington Peninsula, this is produced using Burgundian winemaking techniques and minimal intervention. This Pinot Noir has an intense and complex aroma with great depth of character. Bursting with red and dark fruits, the wine is fine and complex with a long, juicy palate. There is excellent persistence on the polished finish.

Luke started working on the Mornington Peninsula in 1999 first amongst the vines and then, after a wine science degree, he became a winemaker at Red Hill Estate. Since starting out on his own recently, he farms the 4.5 hectare Mosselini Vineyard which is nearly 20 years old and is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah.

These are lovely, elegant and refined wines crafted using Burgundian winemaking techniques and minimal intervention. They have quickly found themselves onto some of the best winelists in Melbourne and Sydney and I urge you to consider them for your own cellar.
