Polperro Wine – Est. 2009 – Single Vineyard & Estate Grown Wines from the Mornington Peninsula

Our wine is estate grown, a single vineyard expression of our unique sites from the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. This regions distinctive attributes are as a cool maritime climate, bounded on three sides by ocean and the varied altitudes of the verdant hinterland, cooled by the salty winds and nurturing the ancient rich volcanic soils.

Sam Coverdale, owner and winemaker, along with his team, tends to every facet of vineyard management, wine growing and wine making. This ensures that the resulting wines demonstrate a clear sense of place where the elements of the soil, micro climate and the people who tend to the land come together to create something truly unique. We manage 8 vineyards, 3 of which are used to create our single vineyard wines.

Our Mornington Peninsula single vineyard range consists of Talland Hill, which is Certified Organic and Biodynamic, Landaviddy Lane (sub region Shoreham) and Mill Hill (sub region Red Hill) the highest vineyard on the Peninsula.

We grow, make and farm our vineyards using a philosophy of sustainability and regenerative agriculture, applying a mix of biological, biodynamic and organic practices.

Even Keel – Est. 2006 – Regional

Celebrates the individual strengths of Australia’s wine regions with a small production of elegant and balanced wines grown in regions best suited to specific varieties.

Even Keel’s small production of wines is established through long-term relationships with growers from individually selected vineyards in some of Australia’s best and most distinctive wine growing regions.

Whether it be Chardonnay from Tumbarumba, Pinot Noir from Mornington Peninsula, Syrah from the Canberra District or Pinot Noir, Sam focuses on wine making techniques that reflect the particular influences specific to each region.

All stages of fruit development, such as pruning and canopy management, are overseen by Sam to retain the integrity of each vineyard, reflect the season and nurture each wine’s personality. After the delicate transfer of the fruit to our winery on the Mornington Peninsula, a combination of traditional and modern wine making techniques are employed and carried out by hand to complete the process.
