Awards : Rated 95pts by James Halliday TROPHY - BEST MORNINGTON PENINSULA WHITE WINE OF SHOW International Cool Climate Wine Show Elgee Park is situated amidst the protected gentle hills of Merricks North and is considered one of the Peninsula's warmer sites. Established in 1972 by Baillieu Myer and family, the 4.5 hectare vineyard was the first in a new era of Mornington Peninsula vineyards. Limited wines are released each year under the Family Reserve Label. The oldest vines on the Mornington Peninsula, planted in 1972, produce wines of great finesse, depth & balance. Tasting note Colour: Pale straw Bouquet: Aromas of white peach, lemon citrus & hints of toasted oak. Palate: White stone fruit with citrus notes round out a beautifully balanced wine with fresh acidity. Matured in French oak for 11 months, adding texture and complexity. Food Pairing: Cellaring: Technical Details Variety : Chardonnay Vintage : 2022 Region : Mornington Peninsula, VIC Alcohol : 13% Maturation: A very cool and low-cropping year produced intensely flavoured fruit.

Partial malolactic fermentation was completed in spring. The wine had 10 months in French oak barriques.
