2020 Philippa Farr Pinot Noir Mornington

From: $48.00

2020 Philippa Farr Pinot Noir Mornington – Growing up in Bannockburn, Victoria, on a small sheep and vineyard property, Philippa was surrounded by people whose lives revolved around vineyards. She had an appreciation for fine wine from an early age. In 2003, Philippa immersed herself in vintage life at Brokenwood, where after completing her 1st year of a Bachelor of Wine Science, she returned to work full time and study part time, completing vintage 2004 and 2005. Just to ensure her childhood upbringing on a sheep farm was not her true passion, she pursued a farming career in the following years. This is how she found herself in Gippsland, though the continuing thirst for wine experience saw her complete vintages at Bellvale, Bouzeron, Domaine Dujac, By Farr and Purple Hen.

The fruit for the 2020 comes from the same vineyard They have been working with for the last few years, The vines are 20 years old and really hitting its straps. It’s predominantly clone 115, with some MV6 and 114. This vineyard is well protected and a consistently delivering southeast-facing slope, made up of rich red loam over course gravel.

As the emphasis is on the region, Philippa’s comments repeat year in, year out of the Mornington wine. The 2020 is no exception. The fruit shines through on the nose of deep, dark berry notes and the palate of medium body weight is streamlined with the fine acid line.

With careful cellaring the wine will only get better for many years to come!
