Mantons Creek Estate

Mantons Creek Estate

Since the vines were initially planted in 1994, the 54-acre Mantons Creek Estate has been loved by four family owners. The most recent family, the Pellicano family, took over in 2014 and have been nurturing the vineyard ever since. The vineyard’s winemaker, Michael Kyberd, has been making wines with Mantons Creek Estate since 2017.

Formerly an orchard and herb farm, many of the fruit trees continue to \ flourish on the estate to this day. Harvesting a bountiful range of natural fruits, you can purchase avocados, pears, apples, nashis, stonefruits and olives from their Cellar Door seasonally. Its wines are also sold on the Mantons Creek Estate website and online store.

Using a sustainable viticulture approach to produce small amounts of super-premium fruit, the winery produces roughly ten varieties of wine per year. Specialising in chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meunier and tempranillo, the Mantons Creek Estate also offers variants of pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, muscat, rose, gewürztraminer and shiraz.

The quiet and peaceful views of the off-the-road winery can be enjoyed from the comfort of the outdoor deck seating overlooking the vineyard from its restaurant, Quattro. Delicious, Mediterranean cuisine is masterfully assembled and served to guests all while admiring the picturesque views of the vineyard.

In search of a private getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, Mantons Creek Estate offers four exclusive suites boasting the best in luxury accommodation. Available seven days a week, these suites are designed to provide relaxing, stress-free experiences that are as pleasant as they are memorable.

A short drive from Melbourne, Mantons Creek Estate will make you feel like you’re miles away in solitary paradise. Pop in for a visit – and don’t forget to say hello to Humphrey the donkey while you’re there.

Tasting Notes

2020 Gewürztraminer
⇐ 2020 Gewürztraminer

This light and well-balanced wine has been minimally refined to preserve its natural beauty. Introducing itself with an explosion of lychee and rose petals, this Gewürztraminer is the perfect match to chili.

2019 Chardonnay
⇐ 2019 Chardonnay

This chardonnay is elegant, full-flavoured and full-bodied, the perfect illustration of how well-suited chardonnay is to the estate’s cool, slow-ripening location. With definite characters of peach, nectarine and floral fruit aromas, this wine is intricately balanced with notes of oak and vanilla, creating a buttery and lingering finish on the palate.

2021 Hillside Pinot Noir
⇐ 2021 Hillside Pinot Noir

From the winery’s Hillside Block, this soft and delicate pinot noir was matured in French Oak barrels. Nicknamed ‘The Serious Cousin’, it presents overtones of wild berry, ripe cherry and the slightest hints of mixed spice.

2021 Pinot Meunier
⇐ 2021 Pinot Meunier

A subtle change from its close cousin, pinot noir, the pinot meunier has a sensational blend of ripe cherries, berries and stewed rhubarb. With a long and silky-smooth reception and a slightly dry finish, this bubbly bright acidic wine has been dubbed ‘The Fun Cousin’.
