Lone Star Creek Vineyard is a small Yarra Valley producer that consistently over-delivers on quality and the 3 wines in this 6-pack will demonstrate why.
“I’m always surprised – in the best of ways – when I see the price of this.” Campbell Mattinson, WineFront
Buy the Lone Star Creek Vineyard 6-Pack and you'll receive two bottles each of the following wines:
Lone Star Creek Vineyard Chardonnay 2020
“Lots of zest appeal here, taking off with all manner of citrus flavours and lemon blossom florals too. There's texture with some lees influence imparting grilled nuts and creamy curd. A shapely wine with soft acidity gently leading it to the finishing line.” 92 points, Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion
Lone Star Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020
“Inoculated and aged 10 months in French barriques, 25% new. It seems reds, pinot noir particularly, come loaded with acid and a lighter frame this vintage. This is simply made but it's a little beauty. A core of tangy juicy fruit, super fragrant and so juicy with shy tannins. A light red to enjoy in its youth. Spot-on.” 93 points, Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion
Lone Star Creek Vineyard Red 2020
“60% pinot noir, all destemmed and 40% syrah with 25% whole bunches, fermented separately. It's part of the light dry red movement in the Yarra. This is just right. Savoury yet juicy, light and bright with enough textural tannins and lively acidity to go another round. Or three.” 93 points, Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion
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!
