Owned by the Aylward family - founders of the renowned Kooyong winery- Ocean Eight was established in 2004 in the southern and cooler side of Mornington Peninsula. In their
state-of-the-art, temperature controlled, gravity fed winery, winemaker Mike Aylward produces stunning cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, taking influence from the great old
world wine regions of Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne. All the grapes for the Ocean Eight wines are sourced from the family’s 17 hectares of vineyard and their total production each
year is just 5,000 cases.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by a mild and dry summer, which presented excellent growing conditions for Pinot Noir. The grapes were harvested at the desired level of maturity
and the healthy fruit was of very good quality. This vintage has produced wines with the potential to age gracefully.
Planted in 1999, the grapes come from a 5.5 hectare block of Pinot Noir in the Mornington Peninsula. The clones are a mix of MV6, 114 and 115. Situated at an elevation of 65 metres
with a northwestern orientation, the vineyard has a great airflow, which minimises disease pressure as the canopy dries quickly. The soil is sandy loam which provides excellent drainage,
essential nutrients for vine health and imparts a minerality to the flavour profile.
The grapes were hand-picked, meticulously hand sorted and destemmed. A cold soak took place for three to four days, prior to fermentation which took place in an open vat, using natural
yeasts. Fermentation lasted for a period of four to six weeks, to maximise the aromatics. The wine was pressed to old oak puncheons of three to four years and matured in oak for 12
months. This wine was not filtered or fined prior to being bottled.
A modern style Pinot Noir full of elegant red fruits, red cherries and a hint of tea leaf, held together by fine tannins with a touch of bitter cherry on the vibrant finish.
