Ocean Eight Vineyard & Winery Pinot Noir 2016

The Oceans Eight Pinot Noir is a fabulous example of Mornington Peninsula Pinot. Full of gentle, earthy tannins and lively acidity the flavours of summer fruit pudding and soft cherry are delightful. Serve this delicious red wine with crispy duck pancakes or in fact any fowl dish as it will compliment the meat wonderfully.

Owned by the Aylward family - founders of the renowned Kooyong winery - Ocean Eight was established in 2004 in the southern and cooler side of Mornington Peninsula. In their state-of-the-art, temperature controlled, gravity-fed winery winemaker Mike Aylward produces stunning cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir taking influence from the great old world wine regions of Alsace, Burgundy and Champagne. All the grapes for the Ocean Eight wines are sourced from the family's 17 hectares of vineyards and their total production each year is just 5,000 cases only.

Vineyard

Planted in 1999 in a 14 acre block of Pinot Noir, in the Mornington Peninsula. The clones are a mix of MV6, 114 and 115. The soil is sandy loam which has excellent drainage and provides good nutrients for vine health and flavours - particularly minerality. The vineyard has an elevation of 65 metres above sea level and faces north west, with great airflow which minimises disease pressure, as the canopy dries quickly.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand picked, hand sorted and fermented cold over a period of four to six weeks to maximise the aromatics and using natural yeasts. The wine was matured in 15% new oak and 500 litre puncheons were used, the balance went into three to four year old barrels for 12 months. This wine was unfiltered before being bottled.

Tasting Note

A modern style Pinot Noir full of summer pudding fruit held together with gentle but distinctly earthy tannins and lively acidity carrying the finish and the bright red fruits forward.

Serving Suggestion

A wonderful match with crispy duck pancakes or coq au vin. Also accompanies tuna and is ideal for sharing platters

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
