From one of the most exciting cult producers out of the Mornington Peninsula comes a stellar 6 pack of the finest 2021 Pinot's. With only 24 cases available this is one you dont want to miss. 

 

David Chapman of Allies Wines has been crafting some of Mornington’s most pure and profound expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot for years now. His most recent release including those from the near-perfect 2021 vintage are, according to him some of the finest he has ever crafted.

A chef turned sommelier turned winemaker founded the brand alongside Barney Flanders (now Garagiste). With uncompromising commitment to taking only the finest parcels of the best vineyards he can access Chapman has forged a reputation for representing the region in a clear tactile fashion.

In this pack;

 

Allies Assemblage Pinot Noir 2021 x2

“In my time... 20 something years or so, this is a vintage that stands out, the vintage is made up of the conditions and the readiness on my part to capitalise on the benefits of those conditions. In my mind the wines made in the 21 vintage, they’re the best wines that I have ever made. “ - David Chapman

The 2021 Assemblage Pinot Noir offers incredible value and an insight into the region and vintage. It is a composite blend of vineyards from across the Mornington Peninsula and is matured in vast French oak barrels called Foudre. These beautiful barrels have very thick staves and wine matures slowly, ensuring that the delicate aromas and flavours are not lost. No Whole bunch or new oak is utilised to achieve the utmost reflection of the vineyard. The resulting wine has piercing pure aromatics, a rich velvety mid palate and firm focused tannins. It delicious drinking now but even a few months in bottle will tame the remaining tannin and bring some further complexity.

Allies Tuerong Pinot Noir 2021 x1

"Overall it was an outstanding vintage for Tuerong. Consequently the wine is its typically ripe self but with an arresting vibrancy often missing in Pinots from Tuerong" - David Chapman

The Tuerong site is often known for it's generosity but in 21, a vintage that was long and cool the site has performed exceptionally well. Picked almost a month later than in the average year the resulting wine is packed full of generosity but still with an intense freshness that allowed for the fruit to spend more time developing complexity and structure.

Allies Merricks Pinot Noir 2021 x1

"One of the best Merricks in the 10 plus years I have been making this wine" - David Chapman

The Merricks site is one of the coolest in the Peninsula evidenced by the 1st April picking date. The vineyard saw a near-perfect growing season and as such expresses purity, balance and power in the glass. An outstanding expression and one that demonstrates the impressive nature of this vineyard. 

Allies Balnarring Pinot Noir 2021 x1

"Immediately obvious on tasting the fruit that there was real concentration here...a wine that will reward some keeping" - David Chapman

There is brooding darkness to this wine that Chapman sees in the best expressions from this part of the Peninsula. In stark contrast to the previous wines and in a way that drives home the humility that goes into Chapman's winemaking...it isn't about the winemaker, it is about the site. A powerful density that layers onto the palate like folded velvet. A wine that reminds us all the multitude of idiosyncrasies this great region possesses. 

Allies Red Hill Pinot Noir 2021 x1

"The most delicate and ethereal of the wines this year but no shrinking violet either" - David Chapman

The Red Hill site is one littered with sharp, steep slopes that face south, as such it is very important to understand not just the vineyard but also the vintage. Neglecting nothing in his assesment Chapman has found incredible parcels that have created a wine that can only be described as "hauntingly beautiful".

Allies is the consequence of an intense passion for wine from former chef and sommelier; Dave Chapman. What started as a couple barrels in 2003 of Pinot Noir from Tuerong, Mornington Peninsula has now grown to what Dave can manage alone. Expressing the many facets of the peninsula, he now bottles several Pinot Noirs from different townships. He has also recently purchased a property in Gippsland, with the wines becoming available in 2024.

Dave adheres to the French viticultural approach; ‘Lutte Raisonée’ (translated as reasoned fight). This sustainable and ‘old school’ approach focuses on soil health to allow vines to fight diseases themselves as well as integrated pest management and cover crops.
