Inspiration for this wine has been drawn from the great wines of Burgundy, many of which show a level of elegance and restraint that is seldom seen in new world Pinot Noir. Accordingly, The Zumma Pinot possesses a depth of flavour and a finesse that belies its new world origins.
Cherries, berry fruits and characters of fresh spice are abundant on the nose, while fine silky tannins, restrained oak and taut acidity provide the palate with great length and balance. This wine possesses a quality that truly reflects our long term dedication both in the vineyard and the winery and will certainly reward those who are patient.

"(2018) A smidgeon of whole-bunches (15%) in the ferment confers a gentle rasp to the tannin profile, melding effortlessly with the classy French oak (30%) to evince a slick authority. Already delicious, moderate cellaring will flesh out the sous-bois, truffled kirsch and root spice scents further."

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.
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.
The quality of Mornington Peninsula wines has skyrocketed in the past few years, and no grape variety has done so more than Pinot Noir wrote Huon Hooke back in 2012 in the Sydney Morning Herald. Rightly too, for the wines are superb and have been compared to the magnificent Vosnee Romanee.
The cool climate region to the South of Melbourne experiences a maritime climate ideally suited to the cultivation of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz (Syrah) and Pinot Gris. The maritime climate is greatly influenced by Bass Straight and Port Philip Bay high winds. The winds limit frost and humidity which in turn limits mould and mildews which can plague Pinot vines grown elsewhere.
