Pinot Noir from an exceptional producer, based in the renowned cool climate Mornington Peninsula - elegant with fine tannins.
When we first heard of Garagiste, we were told that you couldn't meet a nicer guy than Barney Flanders. It turns out that not only was that true but sometimes the nice guys do win out! With a string of eye-watering scores from Mr Halliday, Garagiste is one of the most exciting producers in the Mornington Peninsula, defined by their small-batch Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With focus on specific sites and sub-regions at the heart of what they do, coupled with the use of natural yeasts and no fining or filtration, it's little surprise that the wines display a detail and texture that marks them out as beautifully crafted.
Tasting Note: A powerful nose of plums, clove, cinnammon, cranberry and raspberry complimented by aromas of liquorice and clove. The palate is focussed, elegant and long with refreshing acidity and lots of fine intense tannin.
Critics: “All the wines are exceptional.” James Halliday (The Australian), Jancis Robinson 16.5/20 (average producer score)
