Back Beach Pinot Noir is produced by Portsea Estate from premium grapes sourced from single vineyard, low yielding vines in the Red Hill region of the Peninsula.
Aromas of rose petals, dark berry fruit. Soft and round on the palate with balanced freshness

On arrival at the winery, the fruit was chilled overnight. The following morning the fruit was de-stemmed directly into open pot fermenters. A four day cold soak (to fix colour and gentle extraction) took place before wild yeast fermentation commenced. Plunging and pump overs during fermentation aided extraction. Post fermentation, maceration for 3-7 days before pressing, settling and racking into barrel for maturation

Founded by film producer and director of Red Obsession, Warwick Ross, the Portsea Estate vineyard sits at the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula in south eastern Australia. Located on the century-old Tintagel property overlooking Bass Strait, Portsea Estate’s unique terroir derives from extensive limestone deposits and a top soil of calcareous sand and humus.
