Garagiste

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

James' Review

Barnaby Flanders was a co-founder of Allies Wines (see separate entry) in 2003, with some of the wines made under the Garagiste label. Allies has now gone its own way and Barnaby has a controlling interest in the Garagiste brand. The focus is on the Mornington Peninsula. The grapes are hand-sorted in the vineyard and again in the winery. Chardonnay is whole-bunch pressed, barrel-fermented with wild yeast in new and used French oak, mlf variably used, 8-9 months on lees. Seldom fined or filtered. Exports to the UK, Canada, Norway, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and China.
