This Circe Pinot Noir is another hugely impressive Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir from the Circe partnership.
A bright, clean style of Pinot Noir with loads of vibrant red fruit flavours; cherry, raspberries and cinnamon are all on offer here. Complexity is added with around 60% whole-bunch pressed, and some well handled oak. A great drinking Circe Pinot Noir that is ready to be enjoyed now.
“93 Points. This 2015 release of a Mornington Peninsula pinot noir from Circe carries more than a passing resemblance to previous releases. It’s pure and spotlessly clean, with just-enough tannin, flavour and length to hold your interest throughout; and no more. It tastes of macerated cherries, roasted nuts, woodspice and twigs, and feels both flush with acidity and velvety to the touch. The word meticulous comes to mind. Tasted: Apr16 Alcohol: 13% Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2016 – 2021” – Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
Another great vintage for the Peninsula, with small crops and great quality. Darker than our Gippsland Pinot. Rich colour. Lifted cherry and raspberry fruits; rose petal perfume and cinnamon. Long, fine tannic structure.
Dan Buckle and Aaron Drummond met at Mount Langi Ghiran in 2007. After a vintage of Shiraz it was inevitable that the conversation would turn to any other varietal except Shiraz. With both of us growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, we were keen and curious as to what we could do with Pinot Noir from such great soil.
