Tasting Profile

February 2024

The wine reveals a medley of aromas, red fruits take the lead, with crushed strawberries, cranberry, and pomegranate offering a vibrant introduction. Subtle hints of green spice and earthy undertones add depth, complemented by a delicate touch of toasted oak that rounds out the bouquet.

The palate showcases a delightful spectrum of red fruit flavours, unfolding with a soft and juicy texture. Secondary notes of leafy herbs and spices lend complexity and depth. Silky tannins impart a velvety smoothness, while a bright acidity carries through to a refreshing and elegant finish.

The Vintage

Spring remained cold and wet, with 389mm of rainfall, making it the wettest Spring in 25 years. These conditions were challenging for our viticultural team. Waterlogged soils prevented access to the vineyards, with critical tractor operations delayed several times. Flowering commenced mid to late November amid continuing cold and wet conditions, which protracted our flowering period over several weeks. These challenging conditions prevailed until late December when we finally welcomed warm and sunny days. Fortunately, all our vineyards remained disease-free. Conditions for most of January and February were ideal. All our vineyards were healthy, albeit with very low crop loads. The mild conditions throughout late February and early March made this part of the season almost perfect for slow and steady ripening. Harvest commenced on 3 March and concluded on 14 April, slightly later than usual. Weather conditions were mild with temperatures below average and rainfall above average, providing gradual ripening throughout harvest with rain events being the only pressure. Our viticulture team worked steadily to deliver pristine fruit to the winery. Yields were lower than average due to the cool and wet 2022 Spring. Despite the low yields, fruit quality is exceptional.

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 was sourced from vineyards in Tuerong and Balnarring.

The fruit was fermented in open vats. Fermentation occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 16 to 18 days. The wine underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The maturation period was ten months in French oak barriques, puncheons (7% new), and large format foudre. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
