The lively bouquet delivers an interesting mix of aromas of pink lady apples and spicier notes of musk and Turkish delight. The palate shows flavours of fresh white pear and apple juice that combine with a layered and textural mid-palate that is underpinned by spicy phenolics.
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 a neighbouring vineyard in Balnarring.
The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in entirely old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
