Purchase Now

We are pleased to release the latest vintage of our Single Vineyard Pinot Noir from our low cropping estate block planted in 2001. First produced in 2004, and labeled “Peta’s” from 2009, the wine has remained true to style and reflected each growing season on the Bellarine Peninsula.

The 2013 vintage has produced a wine deep garnet in colour, with a perfumed bouquet of sweet raspberry, cherry and clove-like spice. The mid palate offers earthy cherry, ripe plum, spice and savoury whole bunch notes, firm acidity and fine ripe tannins and a long finish.

15% whole bunches, wild yeast fermented then  matured in French oak barriques (30% new) for 11 months.

Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 9 years.

Wine Review - 2013 Oakdene Peta's Pinot Noir
91 Points

'Wild yeast, small amount of whole bunches, 11 months in new and used French oak. Grown on a single Bellarine Peninsula vineyard. More than a little seductive. Sweet raspberry and cherry with musk and sweet spice. Perfumed and inviting. It has many savoury elements but they only have a feathery influence; this generally swings sweet and ripe though the mouth. Drinkability is high.'

'There are toasty barrel-ferment and buttery aromas here, plus a little bottle-age development. The palate shows some herbal character, and it's tangy, crisp and dry with good intensity, length and refreshing qualities.'
