The Ottelia Pinot Noir is made with fruit sourced from the Pudney family, whose vineyards are located in the Mount Gambier GI, situated on the Southern Ocean. The close proximity to the ocean creates a cool maritime climate which lends itself exceptionally well to the variety.

The vineyards are planted in a fractured, flinty limestone with an underlying ribbon of fertile soil with a hard limestone bedrock below. This profile creates a tough growing environment for young vines, however once established they grow remarkably well.

A complex nose of five spice and clove with a touch of Nori, complemented by bright cherry and Turkish Delight.
