The Wine:

A beautiful, bright crimson/purple in colour, this Mornington Peninsula Pinot exudes intense aromas of red and black fruit, melded with soft Asian spices and some more complex savoury notes. The wine is medium-bodied, with gentle savoury flavours and a firmly structured palate that shows a beautiful purity of fruit.

The wine was aged for 10 months in used 300-litre French barrels and then racked once to tank. No fining or filtration took place and sulphites were only minimally applied after malolactic fermentation and prior to bottling.

Further Info:

Jane Eyre first made wines under her own, eponymous label in Australia in 2012, making three barrels of a Pinot Noir from the Mornington Peninsula. At that time, she was already making exceptional wines in Burgundy as a micro-negociant and now splits her year winemaking in both hemispheres. Australian journalist Nick Stock accurately describes Jane as “a thoughtful and determined winemaker, with clear ideas about the style of Pinot Noir she likes. She prizes fragrance and delicacy over artefact and ripeness.”

As in Burgundy, Jane buys the grapes for her Australian wines. The Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir hails from two vineyards in Merricks, with an average age of 30 years. The wine is vinified using 20 – 25% whole bunches in an open-topped wooden fermenter and spends three weeks on the skins, with several light punch downs. Jane then ages the wine for 10 months in used French oak barrels before bottling it without fining or filtration. The resulting expression is open and inviting, with lovely aromas of cherries and orange zest.
