About

This wine is so named for the ‘57 Studebaker President that Neil Prentice sold to buy fence posts for his Gippsland vineyard.

This is an earlier drinking style of Pinot Noir made from vines grown from seed by Prentice, his own unique Pinot Noir clone which was created in his vineyard. “I’m trying to make a really approachable, pretty style of Pinot”, he says, “We put the wines to barrel without settling them, which I think leaves better aromatics in the wine”.

This offers more delicate aromatics and floral characters than many Gippsland Pinot Noirs. It’s finely boned and beautiful to drink. All things considered, it’s an absolute steal.

What It Tastes Like

Little bacon and game on the nose which gives way to flowers, red cherry and a sweet lick of oak. It’s soft and supple with graphite tannins and a slippery mouth feel. Has charisma and personality too. Good gear. Great buying for the region, in particular.
