Ponda Estate Pinot Noir
Ponda Estate's small vineyard is situated on the Bellarine Taste Trail, 15 minutes from Geelong and five minutes from Ocean Grove. The low-yielding vines are managed by owners Peter Congdon and Tracey Frigo, who are committed to using sustainable and organic viticultural practices. Babydoll sheep and chooks work the block to sort out weeds/bugs and provide fertilisation for the vines, and each year family and friends gather to help pick the grapes and celebrate harvest.
Hand-picked, whole berry wild yeast-fermented in French oak, neither fined nor filtered.; the bouquet is fragrant with cherry blossom aromas, and the palate, has some really attractive dark berry/cherry fruit flavours with warm earthy tones and savoury palate.
