About The Wine

Dan Buckle’s winemaking journey has taken him from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne to Coldstream Hills, Langi Ghiran, Domaine Chandon, and now, back to his home in Mornington Peninsular with his passion project that is Circe.

This label was conceived during the Langi days with his partner in crime Aaron Drummond. “I wanted a creative outlet where I could do whatever I want. We wanted to get back to what the Mornington does best - which is mostly Pinot Noir”, Dan told us when he popped in.

The Peninsular is in his blood. Heard of the Buckle Vineyard made famous by Tuck’s Ridge? Well, Dan’s dad planted that vineyard in the 80’s. He’s one of “those” Buckles.

The 2015 vintage was marked by great quality and small quantity. The three Pinot vineyards he sources across the region were singing through ‘15 and the final wine hits the mark perfectly.

In his 93 point review, Campbell Mattinson remarked, “The word meticulous comes to mind.”

That sums it up nicely, we think.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s pure and spotlessly clean, with just-enough tannin, flavour and length to hold your interest throughout; and no more. It tastes of macerated cherries, roasted nuts, woodspice and twigs, and feels both flush with acidity and velvety to the touch. The word meticulous comes to mind.” - Campbell Mattinson
