Nazaaray Estate Winery in Flinders is the Mornington Peninsula’s southernmost vineyard
and is one of the few wineries in the region to hand craft the nectar of the Gods on site.
This small batch single vineyard has just been awarded the People’s Choice Award at the International Cool Climate Wine Show 2017 held on May 26. Nazaaray’s Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 was voted the best out of 544 wines on show according to the votes of people attending the public tasting, and comes hot on the heels of the Estate’s ‘Silver’ award at the London International Wine Challenge where the judges described it as “a very elegant and classic style with well-integrated tannins, pencil shavings and subtle oak with cherry and spice”.
Pinot Noir was first introduced at Nazaaray in 2001 and as the vines have matured, so has the wine’s character. Wine maker Paramdeep Ghumman has spent much of his time learning the art of traditional Burgundian wine making and continues to refine and define Nazaaray’s Pinot Noir which is one of the most temperamental of grape varieties. His winning Pinot Noir is full of spice, complex flavours and fine tannins due to the vineyard’s cooler location at the southern-most tip of the Peninsula and the resulting long, slow ripening season of the grapes (multiple clones have been planted in the vineyard).
Experience Nazaaray’s delicious award winning wine while enjoying the wonderful vistas, wildlife and sunsets. Sit back on the viewing deck overlooking the Estate where kangaroos often bound by or explore one of the quirky 1930s vintage train carriages - or enjoy cellar door wine tastings from Nazaaray’s exclusive range. You’ll be sampling the same vino served at many of the top restaurants throughout the Peninsula and beyond – think Attica, Aubergine, Ten Minutes by Tractor, The Ivy, Merivale and Vue de Monde.
