Languorous Repose by Albert Paley
Have you seen the newest piece to the Sculpture Park? In place of ‘Shhh…Don’t Tell Anyone’ (now on loan at RACV Cape Schanck Resort) Languorous Repose was conceived initially by Paley for a temporary installation of thirteen large-scale sculptures along the median strip of New York City’s Park Avenue. Languorous Repose illustrates the artist’s constructivist aesthetic of complex, abstract structures that do not actually move but imply a sense of motion and animation through gesture and balance. Come and see it for yourself! Tickets to the Sculpture Park are available to purchase from our guest services desk.
Over the last few weeks the vineyard team has been busy pruning foliage, dropping excess fruit and beginning the process of netting the vines. As the vines start to ripen they attract the attention of birds and other wildlife. Netting ensures the crop has a chance to ripen and the nets are removed just before picking.
At this stage in the season the fruit starts to go through a process known as ‘veraison’. This is the point at which the grapes start to gain their sweetness and the acidity levels start to fall. The red varietals start to take on their hue and the white grapes become translucent. From this point (depending on the weather) we are 30 – 70 days away from harvest. The winery team will be busy making space for the new vintage – cleaning barrels, bottling last years vintage and cleaning the crushers. It is one of the most anticipated times of the year for the Cellar Door and vignerons.
Wine Club Season Feasts Series
Over the course of the year, we welcome our Wine Club members, locals and holidaymakers to the Western-port side of the Mornington Peninsula, to Pt. Leo Estate for our 4 Seasons Feast Series. This series celebrates the pleasures of changing seasons in our 50-acre vineyard, and the produce that we source for our feasts from in and around the Mornington Peninsula.
