Expert Reviews

96 Points - Campbell Mattinson - Hallidays Wine Companion - Posted 06 Oct 2016

Various slings and arrows of fruit and spice combine to create a sense of magic. Ginger, oatmeal, grapefruit and white peach characters slip into gloves of fresh fennel and smoky oak. At risk of stating the bleeding obvious: this is a beautiful white wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Fresh-cut new French oak offers aromas of grilled hazelnuts, vanillin and spice with nougat and ripe pears, grapefruit citrus and florals - very complex.

Palate

The palate has fine-etched acidity and savoury nutty barrel-fermentation flavours. A piercing and linear wine with restrained grapefruit flavour, finishing crisp and mouth-wateringly fresh.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on The Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia's best cool climate wines because of the late ripening, the fertile soil and careful vineyard management.

Since those early days we have secured lease on 2 other vineyards here on The Peninsula. One on the Port Phillip side, close to the water and the other at Balnarring near the Westernport Bay. This has increased our vineyards to 60 acres. With these extra parcels of fruit it gives the winemakers an opportunity to blend from the different sites, mixing different terroirs.

Matt, the vineyard manager has gained recognition for his attention to detail and care of his vines. This has lead to other vineyards requesting his advice and operational skills. He is now caring for another six vineyards on The Peninsula.
