Chardonnay is still the most widely-grown white variety in Australia. But while chardonnay is wonderfully versatile, Montalto and other winemakers on the Mornington Peninsula have a distinct advantage over many other producers: our cool climate.
Forget the oaky, buttery chardonnay’s of the past; the growing conditions of the Mornington Peninsula allow our fruit to ripen slowly, meaning there’s a freshness and natural acidity that’s so important to achieving a balanced chardonnay.
At Montalto, our aim is to produce chardonnay that gives a burst of citrus fruits, with a fresh and zingy natural acidity balanced by softer, creamier tones, along with savoury textural complexity and minerality.
Montalto Pennon Hill chardonnay offers exceptional value for such high-quality wine, while the award-winning Montalto Estate chardonnay is selected from only the very best fruit from our vineyards. This is a wine worth hanging on to.
Montalto Single Vineyard range is our premium collection, each as remarkable as the single vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula from which they are sourced. Now your only decision is which to sample first…
