As a key figure in the establishment of Mornington viticulture, Garry Crittenden was instrumental in forging, on behalf of the Peninsula, a reputation as a most distinguished region of articulate varietal wines.

Bright scarlet hue. Walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and supply elegant, yet complex and soundly structured. Each clone contributes unique characters. There is a faint but appealing stalky character which has nothing to do with stems in the ferment, speaking more about the smaller size of hand picked berries. The texture is rich and structured, soft tannins and bright cherry fruit resolve on a good acid finish.
