Crittenden Estate

Mornington Peninsula

Red 5 Star Rated Winery – By James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2018

First planted in 1982, Crittenden Estate is one of the Mornington Peninsula’s few multi generational
wineries. A true Family business, the father and son team of Garry and Rollo Crittenden draw
from nearly 50 years of combined experience to produce the regional stars of Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay, as well as emerging Spanish and Italian varieties from around Victoria under their
Los Hermanos and Pinocchio labels. Garry and Rollo have purchased several pieces of additional
equipment to compliment that already held at the winery. Rollo’s desire to continually improve
and evolve will see the use of gentle Conveyor Belts instead of abrasive Augers and Must Pumps
in an effort to better handle the delicate tannin structure of Pinot Noir. Additionally, the facility’s
large cool-room is perfect for retaining aromatics in Chardonnay ferments, while the ability to
divide the barrel store into three separate sections will ensure ideal maturation conditions can be
maintained year round for all wines.

The contemporary packaging displays the personal style and panache of the Crittendens, with an
ethos of quality performing way beyond its price bracket.
