Crittenden Estate

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

Our Review

Garry Crittenden was a pioneer on the Mornington Peninsula, establishing the family vineyard over almost 40 years and introducing a number of avant-garde pruning and canopy management techniques. Much has changed – and continues to change – in cool-climate vineyard management. Crittenden has abandoned the use of synthetic fertilisers in the vineyard, focusing on biological soil health using natural tools such as compost and cover crops. Pinot noir and chardonnay remain the principal focus at the top tier, but they also produce some remarkable savagnin made under flor in the Jura style. In 2015, winemaking returned to the family vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula in a newly built facility, with son Rollo in charge of the winemaking and general management and daughter Zoe overseeing marketing. Exports to the UK. -JAMES HALLIDAY
