"From the original estate vineyard planted in '72. Bright, clear crimson hue; perfumed cherry blossom; light-bodied yet intense and very long. If you doubt the intensity description, hold the wine in your mouth for 20 or so seconds - it will also pick up the savoury notes hidden by the red cherry fruits and ultra-fine tannins. Violets, rose petals, forest floor and mushrooms lay in wait." 97pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
"Stawberry, raspberry, hint of flowering basil, almond biscuits, subtle smoke and greenery. Light to medium-bodied, lucid and finely wrought, feathering of graphite tannin, cool spring rain acidity over autumn leaves kind of thing, intensity delivered sotto voce, so pretty and long. Translucent. A beautiful wine. So very Yarra Valley, and so good." 95pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
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!
