Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip

Handpicked

Capella Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

This is a Chardonnay from Mornington Penninsula, which is a wine region I was unaware of (about 45 mins outside Melbourne). I was really blown away by this wine. Reminded me of a junior version of Cloudburst. Great balance, completely electric minerality......polished but not overdone. Best surprise wine I have had here (I am not posting the wines that have been disappointing). Restaurants here are too into the Arts series from Leeuwin, which is fine but a bit over rated. — a month ago

Peninsula Pinot Noir 2018

Fabulous for the price. For $30 you get spicy red fruit, some mornington funk/umami, and vg balance. Not long, or complex, but the basic flavour profile is punching massively above its weight. I’ve found my everyday pinot! — a month ago

Serrat

Fourre-Tout Yarra Valley Barbera Blend 2017

Made by Tom Carson of Yabby Lake fame in the Mornington Peninsula. Tom is also a respected Show Judge in demand around Australia. Serrat is his personal label with French wife, Nadege. They also import a range of Burgundies. “Fourre Tout”- the English translation meaning “Catch All”. This is a field blend of Barbera, Malbec, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo. Mid Ruby in colour. Plummy aromas with black and red fruits. Strangely can see the spicy Malbec on the nose more than the other varieties. I was expecting this to be a more frivolous red than it turned out to be. This had good structure and tannins - would benefit from a few years in the cellar. Went well with Chicken Pie. Footnote: Serrat is a Caledonian word meaning High Density Planting. Serrat has 8000 vines per Hectare producing less than a bottle per vine. Next in a few years. — 2 months ago
