Garagiste, Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir 2018
About The Wine
Barney Flanders loves Pinot Noir, and his 2018 release of the value-packed Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir is another home run.
Made from a blend of fruit from Barney's outstanding single vineyards, with the best fruit from the Teurong and Balnarring Single Vineyard wines making their way into the blend this year. This represents the essence of Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noir.
Just 10% whole bunches used in the ferment this year with the emphasis squarely on ripe Pinot fruit, showcasing the impeccable vineyard management and winemaking of this Mornington guru. It's unfined and unfiltered, with plenty of savoury complexity to balance the finish.
Value for money wise, this is an Australian Pinot Noir star.
