A collation of harvests from across the peninsula combine to produce an exemplary Mornington Chardonnay of balance and finesse. Fruit is harvested and individual parcels may be destemmed or pressed as whole bunches into fermenters. Juices are cold settled and racked, vinification is initiated by pure strains of yeast. The ferments are transferred to a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques for completion, without any malolactic treatments, to retain bright natural acidity. Components are matured on settled lees, with a little gentle stirring over the course of several months, enhancing fruit flavours while adding an extra level of complexity and body, texture and length to the finished wine.
 
Brilliant green straw hue. A delicate perfume lift, showing lemon, pineapple and grapefruit with a touch of brioche. A persistent fine palate with a concentration of citrus and pineapple, creamy textures and integrated nutty oak, the fruit continues to emerge as the wine comes into balance. Enjoy as accompaniement to cuisine or serve as aperitif, but don't disguise Red Hill's delicate nose by over chilling.
Red Hill Estate Pinot Noir
Mornington
Available by the dozen
Pinot Noir has been the shining star of Mornington for decades. Red Hill take the pick of crop, assembling a variety of clones from several choice vineyards across the finer precincts of the Peninsula. Red Hill drinks very well at a young age and is best consumed quite soon after release, if you prefer the vibrant cherry, plum and strawberry fruit flavours in their prime. Red Hill also walks on the wilder side of Pinot Noir, treat her to a spell of breathing to develop the funky country game characters and piquant pastoral savouryness.

Red Hill presents the familiar perfume, elegance and length of Mornington Pinot Noir with plenty of sweet, juicy mid palate fruit. A sub regional assembly of fruit from Tuerong and Merricks North, Red Hill and Main Ridge, achieving a wine of complexity and depth. Bunches are destemmed for a cold maceration, gently pressed and allowed to finish primary fermentation before racking off gross lees. Further seeded for malolactic and transferred to a mix of new and prior use French oak barriques for a year, a component is held on skins for a few days prior to pressing. This selective handling maximizes the delicate and subtle Pinot Noir fruit characters, aromas and texture.
 
Deep, bright garnet red. Delicately perfumed lift, red and black berry spectrum, sweet spice and floral notes. A long fine palate with a strong juicy core of cherry, raspberry and a touch of blackberry supported by fine tannins, elegant levels of spice, subtle oak and balanced acidity. Primary fruit flavours will predominate when young with savoury, gamey, forest floor characters continuing to evolve.

The Cellar Door and Max’s Restaurant feature one of the most magnificent vistas imaginable, with the panoramic sweep including rolling hills, trees, Westernport bay and Phillip Island in the background. Ian Sutton, former President of the Australian Winemakers Federation, once described it as the ‘best view of any vineyard in the world’. Quite simply, the view must be seen to be believed.

Red Hill Estate's winemaker Michael Kyberd believes the understanding of your region, varieties and vineyards is the starting point. "If you are then able to question everything you do and develop your listening skills you are in a position to constantly refine what you do with an open mind". The signature of cool climate fruit is delicacy and refinement and requires a winemaker with a deft touch to coax out complexity without dominating the wines with artifice. Michael’s skills become obvious when trying the wines which he describes as "complex and concentrated yet with elegance and finesse and most importantly balance"

The Red Hill Estate vineyard and winery have been granted numerous awards for an ultra modern approach to pest and disease management. Tyson Lewis the vineyard manager is widely recognised for his efforts at maintaining an environmentally friendly approach to viticulture. He heads up the technical committee for the Mornington Peninsula Vignernons Association and his close links with the Red Hill Estate winemakers ensure total control of the production from grape to glass.

The Red Hill Estate home vineyard comprises 24 acres of predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The soils are deep, rich, red volcanic loams that require no irrigation while modern trellising systems ensure maximum sun exposure and the long growing season produces ripe fruit for making delicate yet intense wines.

In addition to the home property, Red Hill Estate also leases a number of vineyards and has long term contracts with a number of growers across the Mornington Peninsula. The long term nature of these contracts allows appropriate relationships to be developed with the growers and to provide a great degree of viticultural diversity. The many different latitudes, elevations, aspects and soil types of the Mornington Peninsula allow a broad range of varieties and styles to be grown including some stunning Shiraz. Fruit grown on some of the warmer sheltered sites as well as the most exposed parts of the vineyard produce Red Hill Estate's much lauded sparkling wines.

The largest of the managed vineyards is in Vineyard Lane, Tuerong in the warmer northern part of the peninsula. This vineyard has mostly gentle north facing slopes and has proven an excellent and very consistent source of quality fruit while our renowned Mornington Peninsula Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a small protected north facing vineyard of five acres at Mr Martha known as the Briars.
