More Information

Juicy, kind of a squished punnet of black and red fruits, a little mint and vanilla/cedar oak. Medium-bodied, again pulpy red and black fruits, some tobacco savoury stuff, balanced acidity and sweet supple tannin, gentle decay and autumnal flavours, a slight ironstone grab from tannin, and a vanilla/violet perfume carrying on a finish of good length. It’s a charming wine, offering succulence, plus regional and varietal character. I like it, though it’s a pretty ripe and fleshy offering from a generous vintage.  Rating: 92 Points. Gary Walsh.


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!
