This wine walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and more complex and structured. Ideal ripening conditions and minimal yields have also contributed a level of complexity and a bright ruby red colour which further enhance the length and age ability of the wine. The texture is rich and structured with soft tannins and a good acid finish.�
Our small family owned vineyard is based at Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula. In 1982 Garry Crittenden was one of the first to plant vines in the region and at 28 years of age, the vine maturity undoubtedly confers something pretty special into the bottle. The vineyards at Crittenden Estate are no longer sprayed with synthetic pesticides, herbicides or other artificial chemicals. The Crittenden family is passionate about wine but are also passionate about the Mornington Peninsula.
