Scorpo Wines are distinctive, in that the wines are made to express the flavours of the new world, in the style of the old world. They reflect their location and the unique characteristics of the soil and climate they are grown in.
We chose Mornington Peninsula for the unique climatic conditions of the area, which are ideal for growing high quality cool climate varietals, especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.. The vineyard is operated under the principle that quality wines are made from low-yielding, hand-picked crops. And that the vineyard determines the ultimate quality of the wine. We farm sustainably. All grapes are handpicked and wild yeast fermented in concrete fermenters, old and new oak barrels and Stainless steel fermenters. Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Bestia, our amber wine, are open-vat fermented. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are fermented in old and new barrels, with batches of Pinot Gris, sometimes Concrete fermented. Each varietal clone is vinified individually to ensure that terroir differences are highlighted.
