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.

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
Bright warm straw colour.
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.
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.
