T'Gallant

Victoria | Mornington Peninsula

James' Review

Husband and wife winemakers Kevin McCarthy and Kathleen Quealy carved out such an important niche market for the T'Gallant label that in 2003, after protracted negotiations, it was acquired by Beringer Blass (now part of TWE). The acquisition of a 15ha property and the planting of 8ha of pinot gris gave the business a firm geographic base, as well as providing increased resources for its signature wine.

About

T’Gallant is the sailor’s abbreviation for topgallant, the top sail of square-rigger sailing ships. Like the label’s winemaking philosophy, it represents the peak of an adventurous, free spirit.

Since pioneering Pinot Gris and Grigio in Australia in the 1990s in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, T’Gallant has continued a tradition of producing fresh, food-friendly Australian wines with vibrant personalities inspired by the Italian and provincial way of life.
