Vibrant, intelligent and unrestrained. Darker notes of blueberry, blackberry and plum, brightening and migrating to sour cherry at it’s end. Lightly spiced of cardamon, clove and licqorice, with very fine hints of tannin.
A contemplative drop, weightless and full of imagination - just like Aquarius, this wine barely has it’s feet on the ground.
Pair with fresh perspectives.

‘Onannon Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir is grown on three vineyards: Onannon’s original Red Hill site(23-year-oldvines, MV6, 777), a site in Shoreham(20-year-old vines, MV6) and another in Balnarring. 10% whole bunches, no new oak. Unfined.
In 2019 the fruit really sits in the front seat. It's darker than the previous couple of releases, blue moving into black fruits with some cardamom/star anise spice notes from the bunches. On the palate the fruit really attacks, again led primarily by darker fruits that at the moment seem to swallow the bunch spices. The wine finishes with sour cherry echoes and fine tannins.’

Aquarius, the truth seeker.
Cool and aloof. Light with possibilities, bright withintelligence and wholly unique.
Interested, opinionated and wonderful. A friend to everyone. Charismatic and eccentric, you possess a relaxed, self-assurance that others are drawn to. A non-conformist at heart, you delight in rocking convention and in your refusal to conform you are unapologetically yourself.
Generally a tranquil and gentle soul, you are motivated by helping others. Not through small gestures or services but through sweeping, humanitarian change. You possess an intelligence unlike any other; analytical and objective. There is a sharpness to your perception that sees through a different lens. You think bigger than others can even perceive. You innately seek the truth.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of surprise, innovation and technology. With your occasional erraticism and unpredictability, you are a mirror of its influence. This inclination rejects the archaic in favour of the new. Alert and inquisitive, you are driven by what is yet to be discovered. Attuned to higher spheres of thought.
You have so much to offer the world; light, kindness, intelligence and hope. Yet time alone is needed to recharge. As an airy, butterfly of a soul, your energy is delicate and fatigue only dulls the vibrancy of your presence.
