This is the way to combine the swishness of oak, the sweet-sour tang of varietal fruit, and studs of spice and leaves. The statement it makes on quality is clear.'

It's a burnished, rusty, crimson, orange-like colour. It's textural in the mouth but not to an exaggerated degree. It treads lightly as it trips through the mouth, each step careful but fluent. It tastes of oranges and pears, woodsy spices and strawberry sorbet. Wood smoke too. It takes a few mouthfuls to adjust to its way of thinking."

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Mornington Rose, fermented in old oak. On the money. Lovely drink. Dry and savoury in part but the centre is juicy and fruit-filled. Tangerine, red cherry, fennel and dry spice. Another very good release.

Max Allen for The Financial Review May 10, 2017 There’s a pinot gris for every nuance of Asian cuisine ‘one of the Mornington Peninsula’s best pinot gris producers, Paul Scorpo, has just released a very different new expression of the variety – wild-fermented on skins, barrel-aged – that he reckons would go well with a rustic Italian lentil soup. Called Bestia, the beautiful copper-coloured wine (reviewed below) was inspired both by memories of his father’s winemaking at home in the shed in Coburg and by his daughter’s glowing reviews of amber-coloured skin-contact pinot grigio she’d tried on a trip to Italy five years ago. It’s a bloody marvellous wine – one of

Wine: Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration The eighth biennial Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration last month was bigger and better than ever. I’m reasonably sure I’ve attended them all – I was reminded that I was keynote speaker at the first event in 2001 – and I witnessed the way this year’s committee balanced the interests of the 35 Mornington wineries involved (who paid for the event), 31 producers from elsewhere in Australia, two leading estates from Burgundy, and the 220 people attending all sessions. Then there were the 23 panellists from the US, France, New Zealand and Australia drawn from the ranks of winemakers, researchers, wine

Gourmet Traveller Wine recipe match MAY 2016 Scorpo Rose 2015 with Chicken, sausage and prawn jambalaya WINE 2015 SCORPO ROSE Mornington Peninsula, A$35 This is a complex dish, its gusty flavours underpinned by base notes of onion, capsicum and celery with the usual spices adding kick. The trio of protein (sausage, chicken and prawns) are unified by the rice in this Southern take on a Spanish paella.  This crisp, flavoursome Rose integrates nicely with the recipe – its pinot noir base adding charm. The 2015 Scorpo exudes fresh raspberry and strawberry flavours, its fruitiness cut by a whisper of tannin in harmony with the jambalaya. Recipe: Chicken, sausage and prawn jambalaya SERVES: 6-8; PREPERATION: 20

2015 Scorpo Aubaine Chardonnay An archetype of modern Australian chardonnay, in all its rip-roaring deliciousness. It flows so well. It feels so soft. It has backbone but it coats it in velvet. White peach, green apple, fresh/juicy pears, all infused with spicy/cedary oak. It draws you in, keeps you there, and then sets you sailing on the finish. 94 points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front March 2016.

Best of Other White Wines & Blends 2013 Scorpo Mornington Peninsula Pinot Gris 2011 Rating 95 James Halliday’s wine tasting note. "In 2011 the conditions seemed to encourage complex sulphide aromas in pinot gris on the Peninsula, and this wine is no exception; struck match, bacon fat, candied lemon and lots of spice; the palate is racy on the one hand and richly textured on the other; simply outstanding pinot gris, regardless of origin." Best of Pinot Noir 2013 Scorpo Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2010 Rating 97 James Halliday’s wine tasting note. "Deep, bright crimson; an exciting and invigorating blend of red cherry, vine sap, spices and a suggestion of oak; the palate is simply electric, carving
