Riorret Balnarring (2010)

The Riorret Balnarring is an outstanding Pinot Noir from the Mornington Peninsula. We let the land do the talking, allowing insects to protect the grapes and nurture the vines naturally. Rugged and earthy with ripe cherry and warm spice notes, this is a wholesome experience from start to finish.
