Lucas Blanck of Kerri Greens Wines

Saturday 10th August 2pm - 4pm

Kerri Greens is the adventurous and forward-thinking brain child of Mornington Peninsula couple – Lucas & Alyce Blanck, vignerons crafting single-site wines from self-managed vineyards in Balnarring and Red Hill.

 Winemaking & viticulture runs in the blood of Lucas, whose own roots are founded in Alsace at his family winery, Domaine Paul Blanck.

Alsatian purity meeting Australian ingenuity, their philosophy is a nod to both the rich family heritage and their pioneering spirits.

Traditional Mornington champions Chardonnay and Pinot Noir provide the backbone of the range, with Alsatian favourites Gewurztraminer and Riesling also in the mix. Expression of site is key to these wines, with the aim of showcasing the quality of the fruit coming from these special sites, which range in age from roughly 20 years old to the heritage site planted in 1981 that makes the Hickson Chardonnay. 

To this end, winemaking inputs are kept to a minimum with wild yeasts and neutral oak a theme, as well as sulphur being used very sparingly, and sometimes not at all.
