About

The Ophelia Pinot Noir is the creation of Nick Harrison, a fixture of the vineyard and winery at the iconic Ocean Eight in Mornington Peninsula for the last six years. Nick has sourced some top quality fruit for this release from around the region. The intent was to make a wine that showed well in its youth and would be ready for Pinot fans to dive into immediately. Mission accomplished. Ophelia has a distinctly lo-fi feel. It feels raw and unfettered, a very interesting, freeform version of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir that offers interest and drinkability.

What it Tastes Like

Cloudy, funky, chewy. It shows riper Pinot flavours of plum, black cherry and earth. There's a little wildness here, which just ups the drinkability. Fine, coco-laced tannins with a dusting of dried herb to the finish. Life and vitality with an edge.
