Plenty of Pinot character but combined with darker fruits and spicy forest berry. The palate is supple, lithe and even with layered tannins holding the typical crunchy red cherry flavour finishing form the fine-grain savory French oak. Terrific balance and resolve with great line and lingering finish.
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.
