Producer Note
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.


Vineyard
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 north-western 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 minerality to the flavour profile.


Winemaking
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 topped one tonne vats, using natural yeasts. Fermentation lasted for a period
of four to six weeks, to maximise the aromatics. The wine was pressed to old, 500 litre
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.


Tasting Note

A modern style Pinot Noir with a complex nose full of dark red cherries, a touch of
vanilla complemented by hints of Earl Grey tea and rhubarb. The palate is beautifully
knitted together with soft, velvety tannins in a supple yet rich style.
