Pale, bright yellow-green. Inviting aromas of white nectarine, mandarin and fresh cut pineapple. The juicy palate delivers flavours of pear, lime and a gingery spiciness. Approachable without lacking complexity, the palate offers good length with the roundness of the fruit underpinned by a subtle lemon pith edge.
Quartier means neighbourhood in French and the Quartier varietals are a celebration of diverse terroirs on the Mornington Peninsula. The fruit for this wine is sourced from neighbouring vineyards in Balnarring and Dromana.
The grapes are gently whole-bunch pressed directly into a combination of French oak barriques (5% new) and stainless-steel tank, where fermentation takes place without inoculation. After fermentation, the wine is aged on lees (without battonage) for 8 months. It is bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
