The untouched vistas of the Mornington Peninsula Hinterland roar to rich life in this Chardonnay from Merricks Estate, one of the founding vineyards of the world-renowned region. Typical of the area that owners George and Jacky Kefford have helped shape, Merricks’ 2018 vintage melds two batches of berries grown on the distinguished boughs of 42-year-old vines, one wild-fermented and the other with skin contact. This winemaking ingenuity begets remarkable complexity, underscored by pillowy hills of creamy lemon curd, indulgent French butter, and velvety stone fruit. It’s expertly restrained richness indicative of Merricks Estate’s prestigious heritage, celebrated on the label with an 1821 lithograph that’s the earliest printed image of Victoria.

THE MAKER

Merricks Estate

One of the founding vineyards of the world-renowned Mornington Peninsula


Seventy kilometres from Melbourne, in the seaside paradise of Mornington Peninsula, lies a great swath of earth known as the Hinterland. As its name suggests, this is gloriously untouched space, replete with gleaming green hills, the warbling song of native birds, and quiet vineyards producing mighty expressions of grapes such as Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Pinot Noir.

One of these, the founding Mornington Peninsula winery of Merricks Estate, has been under vine since 1978, when the Kefford family planted 10 acres on the immaculate 55-acre property. Today, Melbourne solicitor George Kefford and his wife Jacky captain the ship, working with winemaker Simon Black to craft complex fine wines that honour the purity of the land while fostering sustainable habitats for local plants and animals. Classified as ‘Land for Wildlife’, Merricks Estate shelters a glassy lake whose banks protect a menagerie of Peninsula birds.
