Mornington Peninsula
Wednesday, 30 June 2021 14:12

This region is where the stunning coastline meets the gently rolling hills. The Mornington Peninsula produces a wide variety of wines. There are now over 50 cellar doors and more than 200 vineyards spread across this beautiful region.

Fast Facts

Climate - Surrounded by Bass Strait, Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay, this is one of Australia’s true maritime wine regions. It experiences relatively high summer humidity, low stress, and abundant sunshine hours, and plentiful rainfall during winter and spring. The late ripening provided by a prolonged gentle autumn results in fully ripe grapes with outstanding fruit flavours, high natural acidity and fine tannins.

Soils - Soils range from the red volcanic soils of Red Hill, to the sedimentary duplex yellow of Tuerong, to brown duplex of Merricks and the sandier clay loom in Moorooduc.

Harvest - March/April – May

Wines - predominantly Pinot Noir & Chardonnay, with Pinot Gris and Shiraz the rising stars.

Geelong wines are the expression of a cool climate, rich soils and a unique history. Low rainfall produces a rich concentration of flavour, aroma and colour. From the maritime breezes of the Bellarine and the Surf Coast, to the dark volcanic top soils of Moorabool and dry, rocky outcrops at Anakie, sub-regional nuances add complexity to the wine styles.

Fast Facts

Climate – Cool with an extended ripening period and low rainfall averaging between 500mm-600mm per annum. Strong winds provide good airflow within the canopy, assisting in the natural control of vine disease.

Soils – Red-brown clay loams to Biscay black cracking clay, which forms a finely cracked surface crust

Harvest – Early March to end April 

Wines – Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinot Noir

Best's patriarch Eric Vivian "Viv" Thomson has been recognised for his services to the wine industry by being awarded an Order of Australia Medal in the General Division as part of this year's Queen's Birthday Honours. He's one of 570 deserving recipients.

In the past few weeks, several new board members have been appointed following the Wine Victoria (WV) Board meeting. Please welcome Roger Sharpe, Angie Bradbury, Richard McIntyre and Patrick Gambie. Over the next few WV newsletters, we'll be profiling each of them. In this newsletter, we meet Angie Bradbury.

Over the coming decades, Asia's demand for food will double and consumer preferences will change. Victoria will have a distinct advantage in meeting those demands because of our reputation for safe produce, our long record of excellence in agricultural research and innovation, our skilled workforce and our close ties with Asia. As such, the Victorian Government is specifically concentrating on China, India, the Gulf States and South East Asia.

The expansion of Victoria's wine industry has underpinned the growth of our regional economy. Already, many Victorian winemakers have a footprint in parts of China. They have forged relationships that, in turn, have opened doors for others in the industry.

It's early days for the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) – the Board that was appointed on 30 June is meeting soon for the first time, and I'm honoured to be appointed Acting Chief Executive Officer to lead AGWA during its early stages. I look forward to working with all levy payers and our partners, such as the State and Regional Associations.

As Victoria moves closer to the state election in November, Wine Victoria has been working with our membership and stakeholders to understand the ways we can partner with the Victorian Government to increase the profitability of the Wine industry.

Update from the Chair - Damien Sheehan

This month we welcome to the Board four new members who bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise across the areas of government relations and politics, tourism, industry communications, winemaking and viticulture.
