Garagiste Pinot Experience Pack

Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Three superb Pinot Noirs from benchmark Mornington Peninsula producer, Garagiste.



About The Pack

Barney Flanders' Pinot Noirs are powerful, polished and presented perfectly.

These single-site expressions of the Mornington Peninsula showcase the differences that site imparts of Pinot Noir. These are dramatically different, though all outstanding quality.

If you're a Pinotphile and not familiar with Barney's offerings, this is a must-buy.

2019 Garagiste Balnarring Pinot Noir

Here's another exciting chapter of the Garagiste Pinot Noir story.

The Balnarring Pinot comes from a little further down from the hill on the Mornington Peninsula than its Merricks brother, and it makes a fascinating comparison. It's a muscular, powerful, structural beast, with the natural generosity of fruit and more density than Merricks too.

This vintage sees the fruit come from a new vineyard source, the Silverwood vineyard.

It's been a few years since we've seen a Balnarring from Barney but we're glad it's back this year looking better than ever.

2018 Garagiste Merricks Pinot Noir

Barnaby Flanders knows good Pinot Noir.

He has developed an impressive reputation for producing top quality Pinot’s from Mornington and his 2018s are absolutely no exception. This wine is always scarcely available, and the Merricks Pinot is typically the first to sell out.

It’s full bodied for a Mornington Pinot but maintains amazing finesse and elegance at the same time. A muscular Pinot of indisputable quality.

Loads of unique personality, class and complexity paired with great drinkability.

A great wine from one of the gems of the Peninsula.

2018 Garagiste Cuve Beton Pinot Noir

A constant tinkerer and experimenter, Barney Flanders is always looking to understand Pinot Noir just a little bit deeper.

Cuve Beton is an investigation into the effect of concrete as a fermenting and ageing vessel rather than oak as is traditional for Pinot Noir.

The results surprised even Barney, himself.

The fruit is all from Merricks but it looks disticntly different to the straight Merricks bottling. This is more about flowers and pretty things rather than the earth and power you usually see in Merricks. The tannin here too is a highlight. Dare I say it, more 'Nebbiolo-esque' than Pinot in the traditional sense.

It's an awesome wine and bucketloads of fun to drink.
