Winery Tasting Notes


Deep straw in colour.


The nose is complex, layered and slightly funky with honeycomb, spice, exotic fruit and nutty aromas.

Food Matching

Serve with classic French dishes like coq au vin or a more modern dish of roasted organic chicken breast with rosemary and orange with grilled vegetables.


In order to produce the best fruit from this delicate varietal, T'Gallant selected vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula that were very cool, with damp clay loam soils, essentially a low stress environment. The gentle maritime climate encourages complex honey and smoky flavours in the grapes without fear of phenolic wine.

Winemaking Notes

The grapes were picked late in the vintage to allow rich honey flavours to develop. The fruit was whole bunch pressed into tank, then roughly racked a few hours later. Fermentation was then initiated without malolactic fermentation because of the naturally low acid levels. After fermentation was complete, four individual vineyard parcels were blended, before 3 months lees maturation in stainless steel.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

T'Gallant is a rustic elegant winery, nestled in the vine-slashed hills of the Mornington Peninsula, where Kevin McCarthy realised his vision for creating Pinot Grigio influenced by the cool maritime climate. His understanding of the suitability of the Mornington Peninsula to support strong and productive grapevines created a flourishing region. And sophisticated and complex wines.

The Cellar Door is rich with the history of Kevin's winemaking. The ambient revamped shed has represented extraordinary T'Gallant wine for 15 years, showcasing the evolving repertoire for which T'Gallant - and Kevin McCarthy - are renowned.

The Winemaker

Kevin McCarthy was the first in Australia to make premium Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris. Kevin's philosophy as a winemaker dramatically evolved when he arrived on the Mornington Peninsula in the late 80s. He directed his focus on viticulture, knowing this was the key to making the greatest wine.

Kevin contracted out many vignerons to grow Pinot Gris on the Mornington Peninsula as well as provided the management company that would harmoniously produce the superior vintages he desired.

The Winemaking

T'Gallant winemaking style is expressive. Natural warm fermentations ensure gossamer-like yeast aroma. Each wine is assessed regularly on its journey to the bottle. Reductive characters are blown off with air. Gentle fining when required uses natural proteins found in isinglass and egg white. Blends of vineyards occur after fermentation; however the knowledge of a vineyard's destiny has occurred many years before.
