Consistency and excellence have been the secret to the Mornington Peninsula’s flourishing reputation for Chardonnay. It’s a status I’m sure will only be enhanced by the 2023 vintage.  This Pennon Hill Chardonnay is made in a ready to drink style, while maintaining the quality and esteem for which Montalto wines are acclaimed. Although made in limited quantities and largely reserved for our wine club members, we’re pleased to offer this wine as an online exclusive while stocks last.

Aromas of peach, white nectarine, and grapefruit meld with subtle notes of cinnamon and roasted hazelnut. On the palate the zesty drive of citrus compliments the generosity of stone fruit, delivering a focused and vibrant wine.

Simon Black, Chief Winemaker


Hand harvested fruit is whole bunch pressed directly to French oak barriques and
puncheons (23% new). A considered amount of solids is maintained in the ferment.
Following wild fermentation, natural malolactic fermentation brings the natural acidity
back into check and the wine is then left to mature on lees; stirred when appropriate
following appraisal to enhance flavour and texture. The wine is aged for 9 months in
oak prior to blending and bottling.
