Overview

Overview

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

Nestled in the hills of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, T’Gallant pioneered Pinot Gris and Grigio wines in Australia in the 1990s – a brave move that defied all advice at a time when classic varietals dominated. Nonetheless people fell in love with them and the new styles flourished.

Today T’Gallant continues its tradition of producing fresh, food-friendly Australian wines with vibrant personalities inspired by the Italian and provincial way of life. And what better way to celebrate life’s charms than with a glass of T’Gallant sparkling wine.

Named after the daughter of our former General Manager, Grace is the original T’Gallant Pinot Grigio – fresh and flinty with citrus notes, a dollop of pear, and lovely length. Most vintages this wine is harvested predominantly from the T’Gallant Estate “Car Park” block - which produces wine like pure pear juice - blended with parcels from cool vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula's coastal plain.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Restrained and pure with a Nashi pear bouquet. Savoury with a touch of green olive.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is beautifully crisp with a long, acid finish. Zesty, refreshing and clean but with a classic Mornington Peninsula length of flavour.

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

High quality, cool climate varieties thrive in this stunning Victorian maritime climate just an hour from Melbourne. Its terroir nourishes late ripening Pinot Noir and Chardonnay boasting extraordinary natural acidity, perfect to enjoy overlooking views of the bay.

Adam Carnaby - Winemaker

As a Hospitality Manager at Melbourne’s Hilton Hotel, Adam’s affinity for the wine industry became so apparent that he enrolled in a Bachelor of Wine Science degree at Charles Sturt University, graduating in 2003. In 2001 he was appointed Assistant Winemaker at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley where he remained for five years, gaining vintage experience in Burgundy in-between. Then in 2007 he moved to Margaret River to be a Winemaker at Xanadu Wines for a further five years. These days Adam proudly dons two winemaking hats, creating outstanding cool climate wines from across Victoria: in 2011 he commenced as Seppelt Winemaker and in 2016 added the responsibilities of being Winemaker for T’Gallant. He relishes the challenge of being in charge of two great Australian wine producers – Seppelt with its 165 year history and focus on cool climate sparkling, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Grampians, Heathcote and Henty regions; and the more eccentric T’Gallant, pioneers of Pinot Grigio and Gris in Australia based in the Mornington Peninsula.
