Overview

Quartier means neighbourhood in French and the Quartier varietals are a celebration of diverse terriors on the Mornington Peninsula. The fruit for this wine is sourced from the vineyard in Tuerong.

Vintage commenced at the beginning of March presenting excellent fruit. A period of very warm days and nights then rapidly ripened the fruit causing the most compact Pinot Gris vintage the winemaker has ever made.

Expert Reviews

The lurid magenta-pink capsule and crayon label picture certainly send a message of some description. So does the colour of the wine, indicating barrel ferment and lees contact. Fruit, ferment inputs, acidity and even a touch of tannin are insolubly joined at the hip, making this a food style first and foremost. Rating 92 - Drink by 2016, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright warm straw colour.

Aroma

The nose is vibrant and bright showing classic varietal aromas of pear, apple and white peach with floral notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and white blossom.

Palate

The palate is round and full with lovely phenolic texture. Initial coastal orchard fruit and a hint of creaminess leads to a dry, briny finish with a touch of minerality. Eminently drinkable.

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.
