All Gone

Today we sold the last bottle of the 2008 Moss Wood Pinot which we have had kicking around for a while. Delicious and quite a different kettle of fish to the Western Australian Pinot of the same vintage (this was their first east coast wine made on the Mornington Peninsula), I think that the fruit with its slower ripening was quite a bit more complex than the WA version, maybe thats why Mornington is all about pinot noir and the West is caught up in Cabernet, Slower ripening, later flowering and generally more difficult as a grape variety. Any way the final bottle of the 2008  vintage  makes our waiting for the new museum wines, that we have on the way quite exciting as they are almost all Pinot Noir, I am most excited about the 2005 Bindi.....

Any way here are some links about the Moss wood if you ever see it on a list I really recommend stumping up for it....www.mosswood.com.au

And a little link to Michael Dillion's web site if you are not familiar, he has a light touch with his winemaking and I really enjoy drinking his work www.bindiwines.com.au , did not like stepping on bindis when i was growing up, I remember them filling the bottom of my thongs and  the crunching sound when walking over the concrete on the veranda at home when I was living in the sticks!

if you google " jean" "basquit" "wine" this is the image that you get....... Hmmmm I was thinking something else may have come up...
