Cheers TV: Mornington Peninsula Pinot

Those familiar to the Mornington Peninsula region know and love the area for its rolling hills laced with amazing wine and fresh produce. Join Dan Sims and Ben Edwards from The Wine Guide, as they sample the hallmark wine of the area, the Pinot Noir. The pair look at four wines – a miniscule selection from the 200 small-scale vineyards and more than 50 cellar doors on offer in the region. These Pinot Noirs have vastly different personalities; regardless of the fact they are almost all from the same vintage.
