Soft and rounded, with hints of stone fruit, tangerine and pithy citrus, lemon tarts, both the pastry and filling, and a little spice and hint of oak. Made by Tom Carson of Yabby Lake, who has been awarded for quality Pinot Noirs (and Chardonnays) probably more than any other Australian winemaker.
The real beauty of Distant Noises though? It's the price! Tom has set himself the challenge of making premium Mornington Peninsula wine at a price that you rarely see for wines from this region. Why, in this venal old world, would he do that? Because he wants to. He's achieved pretty much everything else there is to achieve in wine. He's reached the summit several times over. Distant Noise is his chance to do that rare thing of making a cracking wine that is accessible to many, that gives as many people as possible the pleasure of the wines he makes.
