It’s a standout release.
About The Wine
Barnaby Flanders knows good Pinot Noir.
He has developed an impressive reputation for producing top quality Pinot’s from Mornington and his 2019s 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.
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.
After leaving Allies Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.
Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.
They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.
