Tasting Profile

November 2022

Opening with the classic aromas of green apple and lemon peel, the nose also shows more exotic fruit and spice notes. The palate has a soft core of juicy pear-like fruit, a rounded texture and a lovely phenolic freshness. Immediately appealing and pleasing.

Wine Pilot, February 2023

Ken Gargett

A lean yellow hue with notes of spices, pears, citrus and florals on the nose. Good concentration, good balance, a supple almost creamy texture, and an intensity which continues throughout. Excellent length and a fine example of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Gris which will drink well over the next four years.

I’m a fan of wines that feature, as part of their flavour profile, a keen line of grapefruit and this is one such wine. Pear, citrus and apple characters add extra bite and flesh, while flint notes add some flash. This for me is excellent buying and drinking.

The Real Review, March 2023

Aaron Brasher

Pale straw, lively and fresh in the glass. Pretty aromas of baked apple, pear, nectarine, and nougat. Fresh and punchy on the palate, citrus, green melon, pear, and stone fruit flavours dominate. There’s plenty of crunchy acidity and some grippy phenolics that drive the length and mouthfeel.

The Vintage

The cold and windy 2021 Winter saw approximately 185 mm of rainfall throughout June, July, and August, slightly below average. Windy conditions continued throughout Spring, with approximately 310 mm of rainfall throughout the period, well above average. This rainfall ensured soils were fully replenished leading into Summer. Cold soils and windy conditions affected flowering in early November, with many of the earlier ripening vineyards in the region experiencing a poor fruit set, thus dramatically reducing yields. The later flowering vineyards benefited from more favourable weather conditions in late November. Summer conditions were ideal, with mild to warm days broken sporadically by favourable rainfall, almost 75 mm in January, ensuring vines had adequate water leading to and through veraison, mid to late January. Ideal conditions throughout February meant ripening was slow and steady. Harvest commenced in early March. The weather remained mild throughout, and harvest progressed at an even pace. While yields were significantly lower than average, fruit quality was excellent with intense flavour concentration and refined acidity.

The Vineyard

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.
