Winemaker Notes

The wine has a Burgundy hue of blood red to maroon. There is just a little cloudiness which is an indication that the wine has been bottled without filtration and fining in order to retain as much flavor as possible. At this youthful stage showing regional characteristics of dark red cherries. A hint of vanilla and elegant earl grey tea & rhubarb follow through on the palate with soft tannin. A supple, richer style of Pinot Noir.

James Suckling
A ripe and fruity pinot with dried-berry and cherry character. Sea-salt and citrus. Full body. Dense and layered.

Ocean Eight Winery Image
Mike Aylward is a young winemaker who is wise beyond his years. Mornington Peninsula is also a young region, but Mike is determined to see if it can produce wines of the class and restrained power as those from his greatest influence – Burgundy.

Vineyard management is meticulous; yields are comparable to Grand Cru vineyards, and the winemaking is old school, unfined, unfiltered and gravity fed. The Chardonnay is pristine, bright, mineral, racy with a range of citrus and raw nuts; there is richness with tension in this wine. The Pinot is mouth filling, rustic, earthy with red cherries, rhubarb and brown spice. Ocean Eight wines have a modern new world intensity with a rustic, old world edge and complement the modern, high end cuisine that exciting chefs are championing in Australia and the USA.

Extending into the sea from just south of the city of Melbourne to form Port Philip Bay in the southern state of Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region naturally has a cool, maritime climate. A wide range of soils and topographic variations support a large diversity of wine styles within the small headland.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
