Our wines aim to manifest terroir: the integration of geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of various sites within our region, and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully, and without artifice. 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 was sourced from vineyards in Tuerong and Balnarring.

This 2019 is still sorting itself out but it all looks promising. It’s a slightly deeper/denser wine than the 2018, and its berry flavours are more black cherried than red. It has ample spice, as is the Port Phillip way, though it’s more bunchy and twiggy than it is peppery. That said, particularly through the aftertaste, there is a peppercorn-like character that is at least suggestive of black pepper. It all works pretty well and I’d imagine that it will improve slightly over the next 6-12 months. There’s a gentle stringiness to the tannin as well, a good thing.

Tasting Profile

It offers dark cherry and raspberry on the nose, with notes of baking spice, citrus, and anise following through. The palate is medium-bodied, and like the nose, it shows a combination of brighter red fruits and dark-toned black fruits. The wine is juicy and approachable while still offering structure and interest.
