Melbourne Wine Tour – Mornington Peninsular
Firstly, Mornington Peninsula is a young wine region. The commercial wine production started only in the early 1970s. The region offers several large world known wineries. Also, it has many small, family-owned wineries. They offer unique wine styles specific for Mornington Peninsula. Mostly, the region is driving today by the bigger producers with vineyards in excess of 20 acres. Also, there are more than 100 small vineyards with less than 10 acres in areas.
Secondly, Mornington Peninsula has original red volcanic soils. Its hills are rising up to 300m above the sea level. The region is exposed to strong winds from both Port Phillip Bay and the Bass Strait. There are usually reliable rainfalls during the year. However, additional irrigation is often necessary for grapes growing periods. Grapes usually have outstanding fruit flavors with a high level of acidity and fine tannins.
As a result, the Mornington Peninsula wine region is famous for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It offers also some Shiraz, Pinot Gris and even Tempranillo.
