Winery Note:


Deep and dark in colour, a true 'burgundy' hue with blood red tending to maroon. There is just a little cloudiness which is an indication that the wine has been bottled without filtration and fining in order to retain as much flavour as possible.


At this youthful stage the wine is very fruit dominant in aromas with raspberries and red cherries being the most apparent. Underpinning the fruitiness is some autumnal dried leaf and earthiness.


A chewy layered texture defines the palate which has abundant weight and intensity. The fruit is very much to fore when tasting the wine along the dried leaf with just a subtle hint of char from a little bit of oak. Overall it is already a very complex wine. The finish sees a firm grip from grape tannin and good crisp acid and both these factors will assist the wines aging potential.


Give this wine a decant to aerate the wine and soften the tannin. A perfect wine to match superbly with a soft creamy cheese.

Details

What started as a part time job to earn a few dollars during his university days turned into a committed obsession. Michael worked in the family owned winery, Kooyong, spending time out in the vineyard, in the winery and on the road and the net result was a desire to make this his career.Following the sale of Kooyong Michael went into business with his parents to form Ocean Eight taking on the role of Winemaker and General Manager.To complete his education Michael undertook several study tours of France, concentrating on the hallowed vineyards and cellars of Burgundy.

Whilst he makes Mornington Peninsula wines he has applied the most salient Burgundian techniques to take the wines to another level. In 2011 Michael won the highly coveted “Young Gun Of Wine” award. Leading wine writers Max Allen, Philip Rich and Nick Stock judged this competition.
