Crittenden Estate Peninsula Estate Pinot Noir 2018
Reviews of the 2018 Crittenden Estate Peninsula Pinot Noir“A lifted wine that dances on your tongue - a beauty.” ...was one judge’s comment. Spicy savoury nose and dainty herbal palate. Still taut with years ahead of it.
Winestate Magazine’s Annual 2020 Edition - Best Wines of 2019 "Ripe strawberries, then Ribena - a measured spicy dose to add savouriness to the nose, soft oak and a tease of bunch. Mushrooms and truffles on the palate, red fruits on back-up vocals. A lovely, serious young pinot at the price."

True to its name, The Peninsula range of wines represents the Crittenden family’s dedication to over 35 years of viticulture and winemaking in this cool maritime region. Parcels of grapes have been selected from various vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula to produce vibrant and aromatic wines which truly reflect their ideal climatic origins. 2018 vintage saw favourable weather leading to excellent fruit set. A larger than desired crop load needed some “thinning” to reduce potential yield. A mild to warm ripening period allowed the fruit to achieve optimal flavour ripeness. The 2018 Peninsula Estate Pinot Noir walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and more complex and structured. Each of the contributing clones, 114, 115 and MV6; bring a unique character to the wine. Ideal ripening conditions and minimal yields have also contributed a level of complexity and a bright ruby red colour which further enhance the length and ageability of the wine. The texture is rich and structured with soft tannins and a good acid finish. Vegan Friendly
