Scotchmans Hill was established in 1982 atop Mount Bellarine, an extinct volcano that forms the tip of the peninsula. The land on which the vineyard was planted had been given its name by a group of Scottish immigrants who settled in the area in 1885.
Today the winery is a modern facility featuring an 8000 cubic metre temperature controlled barrel hall that houses up to 1000 barrels. The winemaking equipment ranges from modern and progressive through to traditional, with the ultimate aim being to produce outstanding quality and highly individualistic wines
Scotchmans Hill have long been regarded as one of Victoria's finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir makers, while their Shiraz also regularly receiving high praise, with its depth of flavour, complexity and impeccable structure.
Pinot Noir is a signature wine of the Bellarine Peninsula, and this regionally expressive release represents the cool maritime climate in which it is grown. This rich, juicy and fruit-driven Pinot Noir already has a Royal Melbourne Wine Awards Gold Medal to its name. A complex wine with cherry, plums and savoury mid-palate. Earthy and sappy flavours are rounded out by cedar oak and a long, persitent and smooth finish.
