"Aromas of almond, malt, smoky-sulfides and cracked wheat. The 60% malolactic doesn't show. A supremely refined, delicate yet intense wine with lovely flow to the palate, the aftertaste has a distinctively malt-biscuit character and lovely citrusy mouthwatering acidity that is beautifully integrated into the seamless whole. Tremendous length, a very smart wine. (400m altitude. North and north-east exposures. The highest site in the Yarra to reliably ripen fruit, formerly a sparkling wine vineyard)." 96pts - Huon Hooke - The Real Review

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!
