A wine defined by its texture and the balance between mid-palate roundness and mineral precision. The generosity of the yellow apple, peach and lemon curd is complemented by luscious brioche and honeyed almonds. Delicious finish with hints of spice and flint.

Arriving at Polperro’s cellar door in the heart of Red Hill you can’t help but notice how close you are to the vineyards. It’s clear that what Polperro nails is hospitality. Staff are welcoming, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable and you can’t help but feel like you have been invited to a great party thrown by somebody who knows how to take care of people

Rich red fruit so well-defined and full of fleshy drive. The acidity is pleasantly assertive, supporting the opulence of red cherry and wild strawberry, and carving the path for a long finish. There are delicious nuances of white and pink pepper, as well as a lively touch of pink grapefruit.
Ines Salpico, Decanter – 94 Pts, Polperro Pinot Noir 2019
Polperro very much cemented as one of the great places to visit in the Mornington Peninsula and a winery with strong currency in their mesh of traditional and contemporary wine approaches. Kudos.

A quintessential Mornington Peninsula food and wine experience. The dining rooms offers panoramic views of the vines and native trees – a stunning contrast to the clean interiors.

Polperro is increasingly a producer to watch from Mornington with year-on-year refinement of it’s style. This has often impressed, but it’s new release has stunned.

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.
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 – Est. 2006 – Regional
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.
Even Keel celebrates varieties that are best suited to particular regions, on and outside the Mornington Peninsula. Once again, all stages of fruit development, such as pruning and canopy management, are overseen by Sam, Brent and supported by our team, to retain the integrity of each vineyard and 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.
Whether it be Chardonnay from Tumbarumba, Pinot Noir from Mornington Peninsula, Syrah from the Canberra District, Sam focuses on wine making techniques that reflect the particular influences specific to each region.
