Winery MAIN RIDGE ESTATE

Langton’s Selections Main Ridge Chardonnay, Main Ridge Acre Pinot Noir, Main Ridge Half Acre Pinot Noir The tiny Main Ridge Estate epitomises the dreamy aspirations of the small winemaker. This three hectare estate first established by Rosalie and Nat White in 1975, is an institution and revered by both winemakers and wine lovers. The vineyard is entirely planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Yields are very low and Burgundian techniques are applied to create wines of complexity and elegance. A former civil engineer Nat White studied applied viticulture and winemaking at Charles Sturt University. The first vintage in 1980 was vinified in Main Ridge’s newly constructed winery, the first winery to be established in the Mornington Peninsula! The Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented, with natural yeasts, in new French oak barriques and lees stirred without sulphur dioxide for 11 months. The Acre and Half Acre Pinot Noirs are batch vinified and bottled each to reflect the nua

The Acre and Half Acre Pinot Noirs are batch vinified and bottled each to reflect the nuances of Vineyard site. Six Pinot Noir clones are planted in the vineyard to increase aromas and flavour complexity. The wine is typically fermented with natural yeasts in 2000 litre open vats with gentle plunging by hand and maceration on skins. After the wine is pressed off, it’s aged in French oak barriques for 18 months. The Half Acre Pinot is a structured style while the Acre Pinot Noir is softer. These are all highly individual, thoughtful wines which evoke a love and feeling place. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
