About This Wine

The fruit batches are kept separate in barrel and blended to the style intended to express the truest form of the varietal character and the site. A vibrant perfumed aroma of raspberries, rose petals, plum and restrained cedar oak, the wine shows nuances of complexity on the nose. The palate is finely layered opening with pure fruit, a fine texture, grainy tannins and a generous palate. It has wonderful persistence of flavour and excellent potential for long term cellaring.

Yarra Valley Wine

The Yarra Valley wine region is the most important area of wine production in Victoria today, and with its proximity to Melbourne, also the most visited in the state.

Yarra Valley is split into the Upper Yarra and the valley floor. The Upper Yarra is cooler in climate due to its elevation and coupled with younger, fertile, red soils produces most of the region’s notable varietals: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The valley floor is warmer and has predominantly grey soils with pockets of granite and limestone.

Pinot noir has long been considered a notoriously difficult variety to grow. However, the cool climate and longer growing seasons of the Yarra Valley allow the fruit to develop full flavoured and ripe character.

Chardonnay in the past has long been associated with a deep oily, buttery style that experiences full malolactic fermentation and great amounts of oak. This style has since fallen out of favour and wine makers in the Yarra Valley have capitalized on this trend to produce leaner, acid driven Chardonnays that are closer in style to those from Burgundy.
