Merricks Grove Vineyard, Mornington Peninsula
This picturesque vineyard is located in the middle of the Mornington Peninsula in Merricks North. The soils are a mix of volcanic and grey sandy loam, sprinkled with some red ironstone. The vineyard is carefully managed ensuring low yielding grapes with optimum flavours whilst maintaining the natural acid.
This vineyard grows some of the finest cool climate Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir on the peninsula. We handpick our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir each year from some of the best blocks on this vineyard.
Malakoff Vineyard, Pyrenees
Located two and a half hours drive northwest of Melbourne near Avoca, this vineyard produces intensely flavoured grapes with excellent natural acidity. The elevation is 300m and the soils are red ferrous clay with deposits of quartz and ironstone. The vineyard has low disease pressure and so synthetic fungicides are not used ensuring the sustainability of the land.
Our Malakoff Shiraz is wonderfully layered, textured and balanced with intense fruit characters, elegance and spice.
