“The Grand Cru vineyard of the Mornington Peninsula”

Andrew Caillard, Master of Wine

Main Ridge Estate is an ideal site for producing exceptional quality wine.

Located on a gentle slope in a small valley, 230 metres above sea level, the seven-acre vineyard was planted progressively from 1975. It is thus one of the oldest, coolest and highest altitude vineyard sites on the Mornington Peninsula.

The 6,000 mature Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Merlot vines face north-east, sheltered by mature stands of surrounding trees. The rich red volcanic soil and deep-rooted vines ensure no irrigation is required. The maritime climate prevents frosts, and moderates extreme Summer heat, extending the ripening season, and aids the retention of natural acidity in the wines.

Nat and Rosalie White, Main Ridge Estate’s founders, saw the potential of the site and over four decades built an enviable wine-making reputation. Since 2015, with Nat’s support, James Sexton has successfully built on that legacy, sustaining the Estate’s traditions whilst gradually introducing new methodologies, solely focused on enhancing the quality of the wines.

2019 Main Ridge Estate ‘Half Acre’ Pinot Noir

The absolute pick of the litter… a pinot that melds a convincing mix of bright red cherry fruits with more savoury, forest and spice aromas to great effect. The palate is framed by assured yet finely detailed tannins. Pin-point purity.

2019 Main Ridge Estate Chardonnay

Beautiful release…softness, succulence, nice seasoning of oak…green apple and light nectarine characters and grapefruity acidity to finish…beautiful ease to drinking. What charm!

Main Ridge Estate is an ideal site for producing high quality cool climate wine. Located in a small valley at 230 metres altitude on Arthur’s Seat, our small 7 acre vineyard was planted progressively from 1975. It is one of the oldest and highest vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula. The north-east facing vineyards slope gently, sheltered by stands of mature trees.

The 5,000 vines are approximately 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and there are a small number of Pinot Meunier and Merlot vines. The rich volcanic soil and mature deep-rooted vines ensure no irrigation is required. Main Ridge Estate wines have always been made exclusively from estate grown fruit.
