Editors notes

Another award winning Pinot Noir from boutique 5 star winery, Brown Magpie. WINNER; Best Geelong Pinot Noir, Real Review Panel 2020

A lifted bouquet of spicy, musk, cherries and raspberries. There are now some strong bottle development characters appearing of forest floor and earthiness.

A long, full palate revealing layers of raspberry fruit, framed with tannins and finishing with a light grip. The longer the wine is opened the more the forest floor flavours come to the fore and dominate.

Critic Scores & reviews

  • Huon Hooke

    "Deepish red colour with a tint of purple, the bouquet is bold, plain and plummy, ripe-fruited and showing good concentration. The wine is rich and bold, ripe and well-structured with abundant tannins, and finishes with a well-sculpted grip. Long, resonant finish. Lovely fruit and freshness. A serious pinot."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Victoria

The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grapevines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well-known regions such as Yarra Valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for its outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Geelong

The wine regions surrounding the town of Geelong are varied and diverse, from the subregions of the Surf Coast and Otways to the Bellarine Peninsula and Moorabool Valley.

Historically, Geelong was the largest grape-growing region in Victoria (in the 1800s) and in more recent times has undergone somewhat of a renaissance. In the last few decades, winemakers have been rediscovering the rich soils and a climate that is somewhere (some say halfway) between France's Bordeaux and Burgundy regions.

The region is known for boutique, family owned winegrowers producing quality hand crafted wines, more so than any bigger winery operations. Varietally speaking, Geelong is renowned for its superior Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Whilst these 3 are the staple of most winegrowers and makers, the more adventurous have been known to grow and make Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Merlot and even some of the more left-field types like Primitivo, Gamay, Carmenere and Langrein.

About the brand Brown Magpie Wines

Brown Magpie Wines was established in 2000. It produces cool climate wines and is located at Modewarre near Geelong. Geelong now has more than 60 vineyards and is recognised as one of Australia's premium wine growing regions. The property consists of 20 hectares on a gentle, north facing slope: the cypress trees, planted on the Western and Southern borders, provide a warm, sheltered site. This is where rare brown and magpies live, hence how the owners, Loretta and Shane Breheny, came up with the name.

Brown Magpie Wines has nine hectares of grapevines, which were planted in 2001 and 2002. These grapes are picked in the cool of the morning and whole bunch pressed, and currently produce Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. All of the grapes are hand-picked and processed within hours of harvesting and the wine only leaves the vineyard in the bottle. The vineyard’s soils range from sandy loam to light clay, and the water supply is fresh rainwater from the dam and water tanks.
