When it comes to the Pennon Hill Pinot, it is all about the cherries with spiced red fruit aromas abounding. An ethereal lightness with freshening acidity overlayed with intense spice. Fine grain tannins prvoide a gentle grip with a soft warm and lengthy finish. Duck anyone.

Montalto founders and owners John and Wendy Mitchell initially planned a small vineyard by the coast. A place to relive earlier years spent holidaying with friends in Southern France. But John’s love of the outdoors, his interest in viticulture and corporate knowledge soon combined to grow Montalto into one of the Mornington Peninsula’s most popular destinations. Accolades such as “Best Winery Tourism Destination” from Gourmet Traveller magazine, soon followed. True cool climate characteristics abound in the wines, which have received multiple awards on the Australian Show circuit. Another 5 red star rated winery from James Halliday.
