Tasting Profile

May 2020

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.

The Vintage

Winter provided good average rainfall with approximately 200mm in total falling over June, July and August. Early September welcomed the beginning of budburst, leading to a cool Spring with very little rainfall. Cool weather continued throughout the peak growing months of October, November and December. Spring rainfall was slightly below average but sufficient to ensure the vineyards were in good condition leading into Summer. January was warm, with temperatures exceeding the long-term average, and dry, with almost no rainfall. Veraison commenced mid-January as typical. February was cool providing relief to the vineyards and consolidating veraison across all our varieties. Harvest commenced late February. Warmer weather returned at the beginning of March and conditions remained very dry and moderately warm throughout the harvest period. The viticultural and winemaking teams worked with great tenacity, it was a compact vintage finishing in late March.

The Vineyard

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.
