WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Limited Edition
 
The two wines were launched early March during a solo runway show for the opening of VAMFF at Heide Museum that showcased new capsule collections and an exhibition celebrating Gorman’s 10 years collaborating with some of Australia’s most interesting visual artists.
When Lisa Gorman expressed interest in collaborating on a unique wine project we asked our winemaker Pete Dillon, who is based on the Mornington Peninsula, to choose two special parcels of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit for the project.

A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

“A fresh and full-flavoured Chardonnay from a generous season.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 10 - 12°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 5-7 years

TASTING NOTES

A medium-bodied wine with delicious nectarine, peach and melon flavours freshened by a pop of citrus. It is rounded and generous on the palate, with subtle oak adding texture and layers of nuts and nougat spice.

COLLABORATION

We love building relationships with like-minded businesses and exploring the connections between wine and the creative process. Most of our collaborations happen organically and we’ve been working with both with Heide Museum and Gorman for a number of years.

WINEMAKING

The fruit is from two vineyards to the north of the region, including Handpicked’s flagship Capella Vineyard. The fruit was hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. The juice was fermented in barrel with wild yeasts. A selection of barrels completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged on lees in the same barrels, with regular lees stirring, for 11 months.

THE REGION

THE REGION

Mornington Peninsula

A maritime region about 50km south-east of Melbourne. It is surrounded by ocean and the climate is moderated year-round, with cooling ocean breezes in summer and relatively mild winters.

Soils vary from the red volcanic earth on the spine of hills running down the centre of the peninsula to grey clay loams on the plains.
