History

The Mornington Estate range was created to display the varietal diversity of the Peninsula.

Pinot Noir is the world’s most popular light-bodied red wine, which originates from France. It’s loved for its red fruit, flower, and spice aromas that are accentuated by a long, smooth finish. Winemakers love a challenge, and there is no doubt that Pinot is a challenging grape to grow, and even more challenging to make
