The fruit for the La Stagiaire Pinot predominantly comes from Garagiste's Balnarring and Tuerong vineyards, with a small proportion of Merricks and Red Hill. Aromatic and sweetly fruited, showing an abundance of dark cherry and poached plum aromas, with subtle clove and cinnamon spice complementing in the background. On the palate - again a mixture of poached plums and cherries, dense, vibrant balanced acidity, fine textured tannins with subtle spice on the finish.

(2017 vintage) Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir represents the Mornington Peninsula in all its glory. Garagiste never dumbs any of its wines down. Le Stagiaire has a friendly pricetag but it’s a seriously dry, savoury style. It’s tighter than a drum too. Cloves, twigs, graphite and sulphur usher black cherry and strawberry onto the palate. It’s a smoky, savoury, grown-up pinot noir. It makes you feel good about getting old.
