San Pietro Pinot Noir 2022 by Underground Winemakers Mt Eliza.

San Pietro Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is picked at 13.8 Baume. Two clones of Pinot Noir are grown on our Mornington Peninsula vineyard, MV6 60% and 115 40%. Care in the vineyard is matched in the winery, with grapes being fermented slowly with extended grape skin contact. The winery works day and night, hand plunging the cap of skins back into the fermenting juice. The colour deepens, the perfume rises, and the juice becomes wine, made fine and strong with tannins slowly extracted from the skins. The wine is matured in selected French barriques for 15 months, 15% of the oak being new. The wine is hand bottled with minimal filtration, ready to be enjoyed.

This Pinot Noir punches well above its weight. Intense varietal characters of berry and forest floor. Round palate balanced with fine, almost creamy tannin finish.

Local wine made in Mornington from vineyards in Mt Eliza.

Underground Winemakers commenced operations in 2005 when three wine and vineyard professionals found themselves surplus to their employer's requirements.

Fortune gave us the lease of an established Mt Eliza winery and vineyard with some of the oldest plantings on the Mornington Peninsula.  Our vision is to create vibrant wines true to the style and expressive variety offered by the Monington vineyards.

Our peninsula vineyards provide pinot noir, grigio, gris and chardonnay.  Durif is from Northern Victoria.  People often tell us nice things about our Sparkling Cuve and Moscato.

We also make a range of wines, including Grigio and Shiraz, available only at our Mt Eliza winery.

Since 2008 we have been producing wines for San Pietro.
