Straw in colour with a slight bronze tinge, the nose opens with lively aromas of pear and green apple, with floral scents of rosewater and honeysuckle together with spicy notes. The textural mid-palate displays delicate nectarine and biscuit flavours that flow into a crisp, almost spicy pear and apple skin finish.
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.
