Wine grower Sam Coverdale believes in living life and creating wines with character and balance. He believes that great wines are grown not made, and is passionate about creating elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass and truly reflect their region and vintage. Closest to Sam’s heart is Polperro, his premium single vineyard label from the Mornington Peninsula which produces the Landividdy Lane and Mill Hill Pinot Noirs, Mill Hill Chardonnay and Polperro Pinot Gris, and embodies the art of wine growing, rather than wine making.
Sam’s second label, Even Keel, celebrates the strengths of Australia’s leading wine regions with a small production of genuine, refined wines grown in regions best suited to specific varieties.
2016 Even Keel Pinot Noir
“I like it for its perfume. For its character. For its charm. And for its fresh, honest display of flavour. It’s not lumbered with anything. It’s a pure expression of pinot noir.”
