Crittenden Estate was established in 1982 when Garry Crittenden planted his first vines at Dromana on the Mornington Peninsula, a then unknown wine region. His 5-acre planting took the region’s total area under vine to 10 acres – today there are in excess of 2500 acres of vines across the Peninsula. By embarking on wine production in the Mornington Peninsula, a region now renowned for its cool maritime climate, the Crittendens became pioneers of cool climate viticulture in Australia.
Pale gold and bright in colour, this has a restrained fragrance of fresh figs with citrus fruit. The palate combines tangy, fresh acidity that is indicative of cool-climate grapes, with a hint of savoury spice.
