With its distinct maritime climate, the Mornington Peninsula wine region produces a vast array of quality wines and has rapidly built a reputation as Australia’s leading producer of high quality, cool climate wines, particularly Pinot Noir. With red volcanic soils and hills rising 300m above sea level, the region’s climate is dominated by the strong winds that constantly sweep across the land from both Port Phillip Bay and the Bass Strait. While rainfall is usually reliable, supplementary irrigation is often required during the growing seasons. A prolonged and gentle autumn usually results in fully ripe grapes with outstanding fruit flavours, high natural acidity and fine tannins. The Mornington Peninsula district has a reputation built around excellent vintages of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; you will also find Shiraz, the greatest concentration of Pinot Gris in Australia, and even some Tempranillo.
