Event description

Description

The Mornington Peninsula winemakers are heading to the UK and inviting you on a tasting tour of their region at Australia House in London. At this trade tasting, you can meet the winemakers, taste their new wines and find out the latest from the Mornington Peninsula.

Situated on the southern coast of Australia and only one hour south of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is surrounded by water on three sides. This cool climate, maritime region is influenced heavily by the cold waters of the Great Southern Ocean, and prevailing cool southerly winds.

The unique geography of the peninsula and the mild growing conditions produce wines predominantly made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, although some cool-climate styles of Shiraz and Pinot Gris are also produced. With smaller, family-run wineries dominating the wine scene in this small region, the focus is on single vineyard wines of quality, character, elegance and longevity.

The producers attending are a combination of winemakers, owners, legends and the ‘next generation’. The wineries are: Crittenden Estate, Kooyong/Port Phillip Estate, Moorooduc Estate, Ocean Eight, Paringa Estate, Polperro, Stonier Wines, Ten Minutes by Tractor and Yabby Lake Vineyard.

Five reasons not to miss this tasting

• A line-up of 50 wines from hero varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and rising stars like Pinot Gris and Shiraz
• Meet 9 Mornington winemakers and winery owners – their first visit to the UK en masse since 2016
• Discover the geographic and stylistic differences within the region
• Compare new releases with older vintages, and explore the unique personalities of single vineyards
• Make discoveries, try inventive new styles and seek out new arrivals to the market
