Garry Crittenden is a true pioneer in the Australian wine industry. He was the first vintner to see the potential of the Mornington Peninsula as a thriving wine region.

The Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested and immediately destemmed to small open fermenters without crushing. The must (juice, pulp, skins and seeds) were statically cooled to around 9 degrees Celsius and a protective CO2 layer was maintained to enable a “cold soak”for four days prior to the commencement of the ferment, to maintain the freshness and brightness of the fruit. The wine was then pressed and matured in old French oak barrels for 9 months. The malolactic ferment occurred naturally and was complete by mid winter.

The Crittenden Estates Pinot Noir is fragrant and aromatic with red berry and floral notes. On the palate the wine is driven by ripe, bright red berry flavours leading in to a long, juicy finish and fine tannins.
