Press ReviewPress

A savoury and textural Massale... A shameless celebration of the restrained and savoury character of the vintage in notes of beetroot, bracken, forest floor, pink pepper, savoury herbs and freshly tilled earth, finishing elegantly textural.

Tyson StelzerJames Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2014

Redcurrants, rhubarb, stewed black cherries, pert acid, dry tannins, dark fruit core with good concentration and a sprinkling of spice over the finish.

Sandro Mosele is regarded as a “guru” or “gun” rather than a “celebrity” winemaker. Whatever he makes seems to gain instant cred and the wines just are.... instantly credible. This Pinot has the perfect combo (for this price) of Kiwi generosity and the Burgundy style. With big dark cherry fruits combining with beetroot characters, this shows its Mornington personality and a plump face early, but it’s all nicely shapes by persistent structure and a nice mineral tingle. It will be interesting to see if this develops a bit more and shows additional complexities – but it’s just going to be a bit hard to keep your mitts off it to find out!

David RidgeThe Adelaide Review

Winemaking

The 2008 vintage was characterised by an early start and above average yields. A hot week experienced in March had a pronounced effect on the fruit yet to be picked. Fortunately, the vast majority of our fruit had already been harvested. The unseasonably cool February greatly enhanced the aromatic qualities of wines harvested prior to the heat, making these some of the most expressive and individualistic wines made yet. 100% destemmed and fermented in open vats without innoculation. Matured for 12 months in French oak (15% new) Estate grown fruit is now supplemented by specially selected purchased parcels of fruit. The trellis type is Vertical Shoot Position (VSP)
