Very intense and precise pinot here with violet-like florals, sappy fresh forest aromas, raspberry, a savoury graphite-like mineral edge and a pure red cherry fruit flavour. The balance is perfect and the wine delivers plenty of value for this reserve single vineyard barrel selected wine.
The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia’s best cool climate wines due to the late ripening, fertile soil and careful vineyard management. Winemaking at Jones Road starts in the vineyard; careful management of yields and hand-picking ensure that the grapes reach the winery in premium condition.
