Mornington Peninsula, Vic

As you'd expect from a peninsula, Mornington is cool and maritime, with vines getting a good blasting of cold in winter. Folks who know about climate and wine would know that would rule out your classic big, bold Aussie reds. Maybe, but good producers and a focus on medium-bodied wines and sparklings have put this area on the map.


Like those nice folks in NZ, Mornington winemakers let the weather work wonders with Pinot Noir, Riesling and Viognier. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are worth mentioning, and as is typical of cool weather regions, the wines are soft, complex and elegant.
