A layered nose delivers notes of fresh-cut pineapple, cream, and stone fruits such as nectarine. Loose and fluid on the palate, the wine has a gentle broadness that offers flavours of lemon peel, nougat, and white peach. It tapers into a fine acid finish with a stone fruit phenolic edge.
Quartier means neighbourhood in French and the Quartier varieties 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 fruit was whole-bunch pressed directly into a combination of French oak barriques (8% new) and stainless-steel tank, where fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts. After fermentation, the wine was aged on lees (without battonage) for eight months. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
