About our wines

Stumpy Gully Vineyard is located in Moorooduc, the heart of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula wine-touring region just two minutes from the freeway at the Mornington- Tyab Road junction.

Initially famous for its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the Mornington Peninsula’s maritime climate makes for distinctive wines. 

The fascinating micro-climates can also produce markedly different wine styles from the same grape types grown on different blocks in close proximity.

THE VINEYARDS

Stumpy Gully Block

Established in 1989, this is the original home block and consists of 26 acres of vines. Smaller, select blocks produce the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio. The iconic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are planted on west facing slopes protecting the fruit from over exposure, and Marsanne, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in the warmer locations.

Crooked Post Block

Located roughly six minutes from the Stumpy Gully ‘Home Block’, this vineyard is all about the reds. There the vineyard posts lean stubbornly, refusing to line up together. Perhaps in an attempt to compensate for its looks, the ‘Crooked Post’ block consistently produces top quality fruit of Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Black Night Block

This 22 acre vineyard lies at the southern end of the original home block and was planted out in 2007 to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. The youngest of the vineyards, it offers a collection of hidden treasures with its plantings of its different clones of Pinot Noir which thrive on this cool site.
