"A much darker colour than the sibling single-vineyard wines, the Wallis is a more powerful and savoury rendition, boasting ripe dark cherry and gentle, foresty complexity. The palate is muscular and convincing, really assertive and direct, placing plenty of flavour straight down the middle - this has a promising few years development and will be fascinating to track. Terrific wine, weighty and rich. 95."  Nick Stock

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep and vibrant colour. A striking bouquet that offers the quintessential Mornington Pinot Noir experience, thanks in no small part to the MV6 clone that performs so well here. Dark and brooding on first glance, there is a lively aspect to the bouquet that suggests fresh dark cherries, spiced plums and a mere hint of the forest floor all framed beautifully with attractive oak spice. The palate is thickly textured, vibrant and fresh, with ample levels of silky tannin offering serious structure, and clearly showing intent; this wine screams ‘take me seriously’. If you have the patience to wait for two to three years, the evolution of this wine should be quite fascinating.
Production Notes
Hand picked 14 March 2007. Clone MV6 from the Middle Block on Wallis Vineyard. Yield 2.4 tonnes/ha (1.0 t/acre, ~14.4hl/ha).
Winemaker Notes
93% destemmed (7% whole bunch). Macerated for 5 days before beginning a 100% wild yeast fermentation. The wine was then pressed (total 20 days on skins) before being transferred to 30% new and 70% old French oak barriques and one hogshead. 100% MLF in barrique, and after 16 months of oak maturation, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect with a very slow roasted, fat breasted duck accompanied by spätzle and a jus gras. Serve at 14–17°C.

Vintage Notes
2007

A dry winter was followed by a cool spring and early budburst. Some vineyards were hit by frost and hail reducing potential crop load. Poor fruit set was reported throughout the region. Summer was warm with intermittent rainfall in December and January. A low yield with small concentrated berries.
