Onannon is a young venture that’s grown up fast. In fact, there’s been some debate over when Onannon arrived. The tight-knit band of brothers released their first wine under this label in the very late noughties and James Halliday wasted no time in offering an avuncular slap on the back. He was in the know from day one, since Sam Middleton, Kaspar Hermann and Will Byron had all worked various vintages at Coldstream Hills. “Strictly speaking, I should disqualify myself from making any comment about them or their wine, but you would have to go a long way to find three more open-hearted and utterly committed winemakers; the world is their oyster, their ambitions unlimited.”
Now their 2014 Pinots have arrived and are set to add more fans to the fold. Along with these come a 2015 Pinot Gris from the Mornington Peninsula and a Rosé from the Yarra Valley. Read all about them here.
