"Quiet complexity. Spot on." Gary Walsh
Very pale tea rose. And very aromatic too. Heady florals, spicy red currants, maybe a hint of complexing sulphides. It’s textural, pinot gris-like moving from a sweet entry to savoury and dry in a thrice; but ultimately savoury, dry and polished. Really well made. 95 points. David Bicknell.

Pale, pretty, subtle red fruit and white cherry, a liquorice juiciness. It’s soft and flavoursome, gentle acidity, powdery texture, blood orange in the aftertaste. Quiet complexity. Spot on. 94 points. Gary Walsh. The Wine Front, October 2018
Where this wine comes from - Mornington Peninsula
Another gem that’s part of Melbourne’s ‘Dress Circle’, the maritime climate of Mornington makes it Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Paradise. Sea breezes ensure the vineyards remain cool, ideal for producing styles with elegance and finesse. Red Hill, Merricks and Balnarring is where the main action is, enjoying the see breezes coming off Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. There’s also a vast array of alternative varieties that enjoy the peninsula’s maritime climate. Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris certainly has made its presence felt, producing both clean crisp, easy drinking Grigio styles, as well as richer, riper Gris styles. The whites are made for seafood, while Mornington Pinot Noir is a must with traditional duck dishes – either Chinese style or French.
