After 15 years of trials at his vineyard in the stunningly beautiful Jamieson Valley, John Eason made strides towards his ambition of producing a Pinot Noir in the style of the great French Burgundies. Mount Terrible Vineyard is on the Licola Road, 3 kilometers east of the beautiful township of Jamieson – Neville Shute’s idea of the best place to wait for the end of the world.  The 5 acres of vines are a thousand feet above sea level, on a gently-sloping north-facing river terrace. 

Estate-grown, hand-picked clones 114, 115, 777 and MV6, 3 days cold soak in an open fermenter with 10% whole bunches, post-ferment maceration, matured for 18 months in French oak. The full crimson-purple colour introduces a very high quality, ultra-fragrant pinot with the depth, complexity and length reminiscent of high quality Burgundies. Made with a sure touch.
