The palate is soft with layers of complexity. Cellar this wine for up to ten years.

This wine displays a ruby garnet colour. It has hints of spice, orange blossom surrounded by raspberries and wild cherries. The palate is soft with layers of complexity. Cellar this wine for up to ten years.

The fruit for this wine was derived from cuttings of grandfather’s original family vineyard [Boccalupo] in Tuscany. This is an Autochthonous variety specific to the Stefani family. Fruit is entirely grown and hand-picked on the family estate vineyard in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

Each ferment was hand plunged and macerated for 4 weeks to achieve a gentle tannin extraction before pressing into barrels. The wine was matured for twelve months in French oak barriques. Twenty percent of new wood was used to allow the expression of the concentrated fruit characters.

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
