Elgee Park Cuvee Brut 2017

Award Winning Wine

Elgee Park is situated amidst the protected gentle hills of Merricks North and is considered one of the Peninsula’s warmer sites. Established in 1972 by Baillieu Myer and family, the 4.5 hectare vineyard was the first in a new era of Mornington Peninsula vineyards. Limited wines are released each year under the Family Reserve Label.

The oldest vines on the Mornington Peninsula, planted in 1972, produce wines of great finesse, depth & balance.
