About this wine
The very best Pinot Noir brings light fruit notes straight away, and the Distant Noises doesn't disappoint. Cherry, raspberry and lime abound, and the extra time in the barrel adds a slight dark chocolate to the finish.
Pinot Noir from Mornington Peninsula is a synonym of really excellent wine, so to find it at this price is very special indeed. The secret is the grapes are grown in the hills above the peninsula, with all the good stuff, and not of the land price inflation. It's so good that you'd be hard pressed to find a better burgundy anywhere near it's price.
