Scorpo Wines are distinctive. 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 produced in. The Scorpo family chose Mornington Peninsula as the site for the vineyard due to the unique climatic conditions of the area, which are ideal for growing high quality cool climate varietals.
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. They 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, their 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.
It is a passion that run through generations in the Scorpo family. combining old world practices with new world flavours, family heritage and viticulture expertise is a sure recipe to make great wine.
