Crittenden Estate

Mornington Peninsula

Red 5 Star Rated Winery – By James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2022

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.
