Allies Wines

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

Our Review

A former chef and sommelier, David Chapman began Allies in '03 while working at Moorooduc Estate. He makes pinot noir, emphasising the diversity of the Mornington Peninsula by making a number of wines sourced from different districts. David spends much of his time in the vineyard, working to ensure well exposed and positioned bunches achieve ripe, pure flavours and supple tannins. His winemaking focuses on simple techniques that retain concentration and character: no added yeasts, fining or filtration. Production of Allies wines is small and will probably remain that way, given that any expansion will limit the number of vines David can personally tend. Exports to Japan and Hong Kong. -JAMES HALLIDAY
