Overview

‘Quartier’ means neighbourhood and the Quartier varietals are a celebration of diverse terroirs on the Mornington Peninsula. Faithful to our minimalist winemaking philosophy, the Quartier varietals highlight the pedigree of the fruit.

Arneis is a white variety indigenous to the Piedmont region of North-West Italy. Arneis means rascal in local dialect.

Expert Reviews

There is no question the variety performs best in cool climates; here Sandro Mosele has overlaid the varietal fruit with a textural complexity, but leaving the quince fruit intact. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

Quartier translates from the French as ‘neighbourhood’ with Arneis meaning ‘the rascal’ in local Piedmontese dialect. The neighbourhood rascal it is then and a very characterful one at that.

An attractive and pretty nose of stewed pear, lychees, almonds and jasmine. There’s a bit of fennel bulb action on the palate. Love the mouthfeel here. Creamy and slick but not oily. A saline, lemony finish pulls things together neatly on the back-end with a nuanced and friendly phenolic nudge aiding and abetting. Very good Arneis. Tempted to go higher but I’ll be conservative.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A bright limey straw colour.

Aroma

The nose is very much an early autumn compote, with poached pear at the fore then sweet spice, hints of bulb fennel, almond and fresh butter.

Palate

The palate is somewhat richer than several of the more recent vintages yet carries the usual white blossom and pear hallmarks, with a soft roll in the mouth and hints of preserved lemon and a sea spray/ briney element giving savoury interest to close.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Port Phillip Estate winery, James Halliday's 2012 Winery of the Year, is situated at Red Hill in the heart of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Owned by the Gjergja family, winemaking is overseen by winemaker, Sandro Mosele.

Surrounded by mounds of native grasses and indigenous spotted gums, the new Port Phillip Estate winery, designed by Wood Marsh Architecture, emerges from the landscape as a dramatic curved sculpture made of rammed-earth. Inside, a large cellar door and tasting room, and a light-filled restaurant open out on to an expansive outdoor deck. Underneath, state-of-the-art winemaking facilities - a barrel room, bottling line, wine processing plant, cellaring and offices - share space with six luxury accommodation suites, complete with private decks. Views across the vines to the sea are panoramic.
