Showcasing: Polperro by Even Keel 

Is there anything better than a Sunday drive to the casual and cool Mornington Peninsula with your best gal pal? Gazing at lush greenery and abundant vineyards, with a glass of vino in hand, is our kind of heaven.

Heading south of the hustle and bustle of Melbourne’s CBD in Red Hill wine country,  you’ll find amongst a tranquil landscape, Polperro Winery. The property contains a cellar door, restaurant, and a cosy place to stay the weekend. This intimate space is interiors rich, full of rustic and moody tones, creating an earthy and inviting atmosphere inspired by the Even Keel wine label, which couples perfectly a locally sourced, seasonal menu.

Even Keel Wine label and Polperro Winery owner, Sam Coverdale, has produced wines throughout Australia and internationally. His focus is on using sustainable and bio-dynamic practices and creating well-balanced wines that are easy-drinkers, with character and balance.

Sam believes that great wines are grown not made (wise words Sir!), and is passionate about creating elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass, reflecting the wine region they’re made from.

Polperro Winery can be enjoyed no matter the season. During the winter months, we’ve enjoyed the cosy retreat for long lunches, a bottle of 2016 Mornington Peninsula pinot noir and the outdoor fire pits. As it heats up, we’re looking forward to balmy afternoons on the deck, a cheese board and a cheeky glass (or two) of 2016 sangiovese rosé.

Sunday loves Frosé!

Here’s your summer essential recipe for a delicious Frosé.  If you’ve never tried one, look out – they are soooo good!

A Frosé is basically a frozen Rosé….fresh, zingy, icy cold and perfect for Summer.

Serve on a Sunday afternoon when your friends pop around.

You’ll need:

  • 1 bottle of Rosé (Sunday Wine Co has some great Rosé packs available)
  • 1 cup (220 grams) of caster sugar
  • 100 grams of raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Pour the Rosé into a plastic container & freeze overnight.

Dissolve the caster sugar in 1 cup of water over medium heat & simmer for approx. 5 minutes

Cool & then place in a blender (or thermomix) with the raspberries & vanilla extract.

Strain the mixture to remove raspberry seeds & then pop back into the blender with the frozen Rosé & about 10 ice cubes.

Pour into your favourite glasses & garnish with Raspberries or Blueberries & enjoy…..
