About the Wine
Allies makes delicious single vineyards highlighting the different terroirs of Mornington but also the excellent Assemblage Pinot Noir and Chardonnay - his regional blends.
The 2019 Chardonnay is a blend of Tuerong and Merricks fruit, the cooler Merricks site adding steel and acidity to complement the plusher Tuerong style.
About Allies Wines
A former Chef and Sommelier, David Chapman began Allies in 2003, whilst working at Moorooduc Estate. The first wine was just few barrels of Pinot Noir from a vineyard around the corner in Tuerong. Today, there is a bit more but the quantity is limited by the number of acres Chapman is able to manage by himself. His mission is to handcraft rich, silky and perfumed Pinot Noir, showcasing the diversity of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula through wines taken from different township
