Place: Gippsland, VIC
Variety: Pinot Noir
Fleet is the brainchild of Lisa and Justin Jenkins, two formidable hospitality forces that converged in South Gippsland—Justin’s childhood stomping ground—to produce wines from near and far. Releases are singular and, yes, fleeting—now more than ever as their superb wine has gained the acclaim it deserves.
2023 yields were down so a disappointingly small amount of this vivacious pinot was made. It abounds in red fruits and juicy blood plum, marked by a herbal underscore that carries a long, silken finish.
