(Review is of the 2015 vintage)
Canberra District and Mornington Peninsula. That must be a first for regional blending, right?
Has a distinct briny and chamomile top note, not dissimilar to Manzanilla, along with red fruits, roses, almond and dried herb. Cool, lightly flavoured, fleshy almost chalky texture, perfumed and savoury – edgy even, you might say – yet fascinating. Less of an Even Keel, and more of a freshening, wild sea sprayed ride, I’d say. Finish is cool and composed, and you’re up for another sip pretty fast. Right then.
93/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
A fragrant nose of strawberries and cream, with a hint of ripe white peach. The palate is elegant with generous weight underpinned by clean acidity. A dash of white pepper and spice leading into a savoury finish.
Terrific vineyards, surf beaches and a close proximity to Melbourne mean the Mornington Peninsula is the perfect home for Polperro by Even Keel, and Sam Coverdale and his family.
Having grown up surfing the beaches of northern New South Wales and South East Queensland, Sam started out as a vintage cellar hand at Tyrrell’s at just 18 years of age, before completing degrees in Business from the University of Queensland and Wine Science at Charles Sturt University.
Sam joined Hardy’s, working across several Australian wine regions, then in Spain, Italy and France learning from the likes of Jean-Marc Lafage. Through this technical grounding and experience, Sam developed a strong sense of the wine he loves to drink and make – wine that plays to the strengths of particular regions and is true to the climatic conditions of each vintage.
He established Polperro by Even Keel in 2006 with a view to creating drinkable, balanced and elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass.
