With Musk Creek and Tussie Mussie, Campbell and Christine completes the trio of Quealy’s premier league, leased Mornington vineyards. This site was established by Doctors Campbell and Christine Penfold in 1994 and is mainly MV6 (while some 114 and 115 were also planted, taking advantage of the premium clones that became available around the same time). Located on the coastal plain, it sits at a very low 30 metres of elevation behind the Balnarring village, facing north on an exposed site with alluvial clay and red soils washed down from Red Hill. It’s a site that, as Tom McCarthy tells us, produces “gorgeous, small bunches of glossy Pinot Noir”.  


Cropped at less than two tonnes to the acre, only the free-run juice from the fermentation was settled and racked into 500-litre puncheons (roughly a quarter new). Unusually for this producer, McCarthy used a portion of whole-bunch this year—some 30% across two ferments—bringing extension and shape to the palate and adding some spice to the canvas of fleshy fruit.

Reviews

"Smells of the Mornington Peninsula in autumn. Damp earth, woodsy and mushroom, spiked with tangy cherries. It's a lovely wine. Juicy and zesty and framed by its medium-bodied palate and velvety tannins. A delicious drink."
94 points, Jane Faulkner, Wine Companion
"Fragrant, herbal perfume with lots of floral things, whiffs of plum, turned earth and undergrowth. Super. Supple texture with a little nibble of dusty tannin, a good prickle of sour-sweet acidity, a long, flowing, spreading finish. Flavoursome, fresh and energetic. A silky feel to the undercoat too. Lovely stuff."
