Dappled is the handiwork of Shaun Crinion. In his own words: “I have been a cellar rat virtually my entire career, holding winemaker and assistant winemaker roles over the past 12 years with small to medium producers – but even during this time I’ve been in the cellar and vineyard. So I’m a traditionalist, hands-on winemaker and I like it that way. Dappled was started in 2009 with the view to make high quality, unadulterated wines from special patches of dirt at realistic prices.” Shaun Crinion

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!
